use bridge to view your cr2 files =]
no point in shooting raw just to process to jpeg without editing...
i edit through PS & camera Raw. then i downsize my big to 8bit, and save the jpge copy.
just got home from a long day of shooting... i have 800 pics from today
oh of course. i love messing with the sliders. they make a
nice pics and nice nipps
Cool, I wanted to post this a while back but I wasn't sure who would understand or follow... I see y'all are shooting in RAW (and PP in PS & Camera RAW, which I am too) but my question is about saving RAW to JPEG and COLOR SPACE (specially when uploading to Flickr)?
sRGb vs Adobe RGB? I google, read up and only ended up more confused, and wishing everyone would just use Safari (because it didn't matter, it can view the image how it should look), kind of wish I never notice or found out about Flickr "degrading" the images slightly. Any sugg. one which on is "best" for sharing and/or printing?
The color space on the cam is set to sRGB... but I like taking images in Raw -> upload open in Camera RAW (by the way you can select all RAW to open n Camera RAW not 1 by 1) - edit colors -> open in Photoshop CS3 -> Save JPEG... based on my EXIF it saves then as Adobe RGB (not sure how to save it then to sRGB but still keep the colors the way I edit them, if that makes sense).
To save everyone the reading, the back and forth... from research my conclusion is for sharing online (and Flickr) sRGB color space is best BUT I guess my biggest problem is what should my work flow be OR how can I convert aRGB to sRGB without losing the "quality".
Actually, here is an example of a shot I took... I'm working on a a Mac (just mentiong all the variables here), I'm uploading a image grab to NT ("insert image" upload option) to share (of course the colors will be lost again or isn't an actual representation of what I'm seeing on my screen but) the point is to show how the same image look different on Flickr (also browser dependent) then the original...
Left is Safari (which again, according to my reading isn't affected like all other browsers). Middle is Firefox. Right is "Preview" of original.
I think tthe above is the best example I have now that demonstrates what I am trying to explain in words. I didn't think it would bother me but then I realize if I take the time to edit the RAW file to look a certain way, guess I want them to look that way when I share too. I hope I explained myself also so that you can understand and provide insight. Thanks!
Also it was asked a couple pages back but I'm asking about having a "book" done....
Printing? In the very near future when I feel I've have at least 24 favorites I would like to print a nice but simple book with those images for my coffee, any sugg. on which printing service to use?
