Re: Clearly the poll has spoken

With jpeg you do not have to use the word workflow. You just copy them to your hard drive and look at them at your leisure.

Also if you are not keeping your RAW originals taking up space on the disc and backup you have to ensure your monitor is accurately calibrated and also that your saved version will print which is expensive. I have had edited images that look OK on the screen but are unprintable.

As a lazy and thoroughly disorganised person I can recommend in camera jpeg's without reservation. The thought of having to have some sort of workflow distresses me greatly.

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???"
