I'm not sure why one would take raw data and turn it into a jpeg as the final output. Even so, I'm not sure it's as difficult as all that. Camera controls are fairly coarse and displays small, so it's very hard to dial in the exact settings that will make the image the way you want it.

Umm, so exactly what would you produce as the final output? For the most part my own PP starts with a RAW image and ends up with a JPG, or did I completely misread/misunderstand that statement?

Tif or psd generally. This is what I've generally sent to separators and service bureaus.

But I should clarify. If you want the highest quality, psd or tif are the easiest ways to ensure that. This was the context I had in mind. So yea, I put out jpgs from time to time if the need justifies it.

And if one chooses the highest quality with no compression, jpegs can be pretty good. If not done a side by side test of such a file and a tif.
