HX9V JPEG workflow question
Mar 21, 2012

I should know this, but well, I don't.

After 3-4 years of using Pentax and now Nikon DSLRs, and shooting only in RAW, the Sony HX9V is my first pocket camera. I'm not sure how to process jpeg images.

My DSLR workflow is RAW > Bridge > Photoshop > crop & edit and save. I've never upscaled anything, always worked from larger to smaller and everything stayed in 300ppi.

The following workflow using the software I have (CS4) seems to work for the Sony, but I'm looking for any guidance on improvements:

1. JPEG > Bridge > Camera RAW at full size (16MB @ 72ppi).

2. Edit > Open in Photoshop using 8-bit 240ppi > then reduce dimensions or crop, edit, sharpen > save at maximum quality (12) for prints

And if I want to email/post on the web, reduce to 96ppi and reduce dimensions to around 700x500 pixels.

There must be hundreds of ways to go on this, but I'd appreciate any input from users on what works best for them. Thanks...
