Have you ever applied an adjustment in Camera Raw and wished the slider went further? For example, you’re recovering high­lights with the High-lights slider, but it’s all the way to the left, and you know there’s more detail that you just can’t get to. Here’s a sneaky way around that: Make your adjustment, then create a Radial Filter (J) adjustment, and make the oval large enough to cover the entire image. Now you have a whole array of sliders all ready for you to push the boundaries. Call it turbo processing if you like.
