Re: Real World Example

If you have the rights work flow, you will not notice the difference between working JPEG or RAW. For RAW, you could either use DPP (free) or PP/LR. In DPP you pre-select your keepers in the browser. You can define certain standard settings as pre-sets or batch processing (such as sharpening, color saturation, contrast. If you own a 7D or any other cam that suports DLO (Digital Lens Optimizer), you sure want to use that, too. So my workflow in DPP is:

1. Select RAWs you want to edit in the Browser Window.

2. Select "View" "Tool Palette"

3. Select "Lens" and apply corrections

4. Select Contrast, Color Saturation, WB or whatever else you want to batch correct

5. On the "RGB" tab, you can have DPP auto correct the tone curve (I don't like that very much)

6. Now open "Edit Window" and edit per image what ever you feels needs to be edited.

7. Batch convert to JPEG

8. Done
