How to import and manipulate RAW files in Adobe Photoshop
Adobe has released a new version of its Photoshop, version CC 2015, including RAW support in the form of Adobe RAW Importer. By default, Photoshop CC 2015 includes native RAW support but you can also install the RAW Importer to import RAW files that are already in Photoshop.
To enable RAW support on your computer, click File > Import > Import RAW. A new window will open on your screen where you can select the RAW or uncompressed color profile you want to import, and add a layer mask to hide parts of your image.
When it’s done, you’ll see your image appear in a new window alongside other imported RAW files that were created from RAW files imported with the importing RAW Importer. To view the RAW files:
Open your RAW files in Adobe Photoshop. Click File > View Raw.
To read and edit the RAW files, go to View > Adobe Photoshop > RAW. Click File > Browse… A new file browser window will open up where you can browse different RAW files that were selected from Adobe Photoshop. For more information on RAW files, read our guide to RAW files in Adobe Photoshop.
Image size options
The size parameter in Photoshop CC 2015 lets you change the size of the image that appears in the layer preview window.
To view the size option, go to Window > Window sizes and select the desired size.
Here’s a sample to show how to change the size of an entire image that is saved in a JPEG or PNG file:
To change the height or width of the image that appears in the layer preview window:
Right-click and select Image, then Image Size… .
If you want to change the size to a specific number, click the number you want, then copy, and then paste it into the text area.
The bottom of the window says the image is saved as 2,000 by 3,000 pixels in size. (You could easily adjust the size to 1.5 times the original size by clicking the + buttons on the bottom.)
Adjusting a layer’s position
In Photoshop CC 2015, adding layers is also useful for moving elements around in your image.
