Re: What I don't understand is the reluctance to use PP software to alter an image.

Because there are times I don't need raw. I bought the best camera to have a choice. The t4i with its digic 5 processor produces great jpgs. Why should I post process when the camera gets it right 99% of the time?

Do you have home insurance? Why not save your money when your house is not going to burn down on 99.999% of days?

It all depends on your definition of "right". I bet yours is different to mine, and that's okay, but no-one can insist that their "right" is good enough or necessary for every other photographer.

I'm an amateur taking amateur photos, not a pro shooting a wedding. Why download hundreds of 18 meg files, if not needed?

Yeah, use the format that meets your needs.

I think you've answered a different question to the one Oilman asked.
