HOWEVER, there is one common theme that deserves to be exposed and tossed out: We continually hear people say, "Raw files are too much bother. My workflow is simple. I just import photos [with some cheap/free program], then I open them in [another cheap/free program], then I make some adjustments in [yet another cheap/free program] and, if needed, I'll use [any or all of several cheap/free plugins or standalone apps] and I'm done. Whose got time to mess with raw files???"

Really, people?


You are shooting down a straw man there!

I know many people who do not use raw and use just one program (or none). They import and view their images and do no processing of any kind (apart from uploading them to Facebook, etc. or emailing them to friends).

I think they have a perfectly reasonable case if they say that using raw is just too much trouble.

By the way, I use raw all the time, but I also respect those who don't.
