Wow WW, you do do some work on your images!! What are the advantages of converting to Tiff for editing?

I do love using Lightroom, and I do have PS but I very rarely use PS, mainly because I'm hopeless at navigating around PS!!

Eddy, I convert RAW files to TIFF because TIFF is a lossless format. I can manipulate the TIFF file and save them often, between the different programmes, with out image loss.

Each time a JPEG image is saved it suffers from JPEG compression, which compromises the quality of the image. I convert the TIFF files to JPEGs, which reduces the size of the file image, prior to posting on the web. Doing this at the last stage of processing gives me the minimum image deterioration.

The image of the smoky swinging Coolac moon, was processed as a JPEG from start to finish. As you can see the image is somewhat soft.

Earlier I typed Voom Browser EX. I meant to type Zoom Browser EX.

Warren.
