Re: Since Lightroom is so good, what do you use Photoshop for?

That is not correct, there is nothing in a raw image than can be printed as an image.  Certainly not one that has your edits applied, and in the pixel density you are expecting.

A raw developer that is capable of printing HAS to render the raw image into something printable before it can be printed, and that is a bit mapped image that is at least in the proprietary internal format that the Raw developer uses.  It doesn't have to be a jpg or a tif, but it DOES need to convert to whatever internal rendering mechanism it uses first.
