Re: Question about resolution and image dimensions

Save you images as RGB Jpeg files for the web and electronic display in the sRGB color space. Keep your RAW files and ACR XMP Sidecar setting file in the same folders. If you need to print open the RAW file in Photoshop and create the Print size document you need and print from Photoshop you don't need to sase ant large Tiff file just print the images and close the document without saving.

Of course if you have done a lot of image manipulation I would save a layered file containing the full camera mega pixels. If you open the RAW file as a smart Object layer instead of a background layer you can always change the layered file color space and white balance. This method also let you maintain versions of and image. In fact if you use menu Layer> Smart Object> New Smart Object via Copy on the Image layer you can maintain multipal versions of an image in a single file and share image manipulation layers. For you can change the ACR settings for each of the image smart object layers independent they are because of the "New Smart Object via Copy"
