Correct workflow? - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Leen, I would save the original, unedited versions, either as the original, fresh-from-the-camera JPEG's or as the product of Open and immediate Save as TIFF just for archival purposes. However, you are right that once a JPEG is opened, it is no longer a JPEG or a TIFF or anything else until it's saved again - it's just pixels. Therefore, if you don't want to save the unedited originals, there's no advantage to 'converting' to TIFF before editing. Chuck...

    Chuck, I forgot to mention I usually save the JPEG files to cd-rw before I do anything else. Next I delete the images on the card and start working on the images on my hard disk.
    When I cover a wedding with several hundreds of images I save the camerafiles to normal cd and keep them as a record with the cd's with the enhanced images.
    Whenever anything might happen to the computer I always have the images as they came from the camera.
    Safety first; that's why I'm "consuming" approximately 600 cd's yearly. ;-((

    Leen, in that case your workflow is fine! I thought you might have been
    saving those camera files for a rainy day...

    :-)

    p.s. I hope the CD's have become reasonably priced over there as they have
    here....

    Rainy day......
    Wished it would rain.
    It is a little after midnight here and still 30 degrees Celsius.
    Some math: 32+9*30/5= 86 Fahrenheit...

    I'm lucky to live in the lovely historic town of Zierikzee (yes, indeed worth some "googling") at the seaside and from my studio I can see ships move up and down with the tide so we always have some wind. But even the wind is hot and humid!

    I think I 'll start working at 06.00 in the morning. In the afternoon the studio is like a sauna

    PS I happen to buy my cd's extremely cheap in bulk together with some colleagues

    Leen, sounds like a wonderful setting! Hope the heat wave subsides soon for
    you.
