Hi, I'm new to the forum and have some questions about photo editing, don't know if this is the right section but here goes.
I'm confused about getting the best out of RAW.
I've been using a Canon 400 L with 50D.
I use Canon DPP and people do things differently.
One photographer I spoke to does no RAW editing in DPP but transfers all images to TIFF and then does all the editing in Photoshop.
The problem then is uploading images which requires JPEG.
So I'm thinking why not just save to JPEG from the start as I'm not aware you can then change TIFF to JPEG, although I'm aware the image may degrade this way.
I've noticed with well exposed shots in good light that sharpening RAW in DPP instead of Photoshop Elements gives slightly sharper pictures. On the other hand, in poor light any images sharpened in DPP instead of Photoshop look terrible with horrendous digital noise.
So I'm stuck as to: 1. How best to edit using DPP and Photoshop, and the relative benefits of each, and 2. How to upload photos given this requires JPEG and not TIFF.
Thanks for your help and experience.
