Hi out there,
I have a Nikon D200 camera,Photoshop CS2 and WIndows.
Now in my camera settings i take photos as Raw + Jpeg fine, my camera doesn’t have TIFF. My photos are for printing -medium to large- and web.
I am kind of new to the digital thing…
I have been reading, asking, and wondering about digital workflow, i know it’s a personal business but i am a little lost in there….but i don’t want to spend most of my time doing this, now that i spend half on the computer!

Now this is what i do,
does it make sense?any suggestions?any additions as to bits, resolution, etc?

1.CONVERT RAW INTO DNG (directly from camera if possible) USING DNG CONVERTER.(DELETE RAW) STORE
2. MAKE CHANGES FROM THE DNG FILE IN ACR, SAVE AS DNG, NEW FILE.
3.IF MAKE FURTHER CHANGES WITH PHOTOSHOP, SAVE CHANGES AS a.PSD (STORE AND USE FOR WEB) AND b.AS JPEG (STORE AND USE FOR PRINT)
4.MAKE CONTACT SHEETS, GALLERY, ETC

I don’t have Lightroom, is it worth getting into more programs? Am questioning why i set Jpeg copy in my camera…

Thanks.

Each person has their own way. i convert my d200 nefs to dng to avoid the extra sidecar file.i process the dng to my print needs and then save that as a tiff for my printing needs and save the dng original right next to the finished version.So i end up with a file called fall foliage.tif, and fall foliage.dng. i burn them to dvd and if i ever want to rework a shot,it is right there to access. as far as the jpg and other uses, i make a copy upon opening the tif and just do whatever to that dupe file,so i dont mess with my finished master version.

Sam, please refrain from posting with more than one or two words in all caps. I might know the answer to your problem, but I didn’t read the all caps part, because reading all caps hurts my eyes.
