Mark will also give us a tour of the new and faster Adobe Bridge CS4, and show us a few secrets to speeding up the workflow using some of the nifty tools buried in the menus. We’ll also be looking at Adobe Camera Raw 5 and some of its new tools, including the localized corrections and post-crop vignetting.
