Post-Processing (non-RAW)???
Dec 2, 2006

I'm thinking about really getting into post-processing, and I have some "start-up" questions:

1. I have a copy of PSE 4 - is it worth upgrading to v. 5 or use v. 4 and "get my feet wet" first?

2. Are there any really good articles or books on workflow? i.e. copying media files to computer, converting jpg to psd or tiff to protect the file's integrity, keeping files (photos) in a separte place on the computer or just using PSE to organize all files, backup (archival gold disks or just regular CD's), etc.

3. If I "rotate" files (photos) when transferring from camera (or media) to computer does that degrade the jpg image as changing color, WB, etc. and re-saving the image would degrade it each time it was changed and saved?
TIA :> )
