Rabid Saver... Must Protect Original!

As long as you remain inside PS the file format selected in the raw

save to disc as Jpeg that anything are lost.
Just remember to save the final image as psd or Tiff or something=)

Technically accurate, Anders, and thanks for the input, but doing it that way doesn't fit my (rather fanatical) habit of saving often (ever been working on a file for an hour without saving and have the computer crash or the application lock up on you? Aaaarrrgh!! ). I try to make "Save As" the first thing I do, since a slip of a key or the mouse can result in overwriting the original file (which CAN be undone in some cases, but only if you remember, and only if you're using recent versions of Photoshop).
