Hey guys... I have a question that deals with RAW image processing.

As we all know, PHOTOSHOP allows extensive tweaking of a RAW image using the ADOBE RAW module... before the picture ever even gets opened into PHOTOSHOP proper.

Many of the tweaks (color, perspective, focus, clarity, etc.) are things that could just as well be done in PHOTOSHOP proper. But is there an especially good reason to do all the tweaks within ADOBE RAW first, before opening the image into PHOTOSHOP?

Just wondering.

Thanks, David L. Brooks

All of the changes you make to the image in RAW are non-destructive; you can always go back to the original and make changes. Further, I find RAW much faster than doing the same actions in PS. Also, if you import an image as a RAW smart object, you get the best of both worlds.

Save early. Save often.
