RAW conversion/Photoshop CS5 file-prep order of operations for output: Durst Lambda I'm prepping some files (portraits) for a client for final output, and was wondering what the proper order of operations were. I'm planning to buy a stand-alone RAW converter: either Capture One, Capture NX, or DxO Optics Pro. However, I do not intend to include either Aperture, or Lightroom, into my workflow--instead, I'm planning to buy Phase One's Media Pro 1 + Photo Mechanic for general image management and editing. For this particular job, since only the most minor adjustments are needed (e.g., image size), I'm planning to batch-process the files after RAW conversion with a Photoshop action. Images were acquired as both JPGs and RAWs, using a 12MP Nikon D3s, set to capture in AdobeRGB colorspace, with Nikon's in-camera "Picture Control" set to "neutral." I'm guessing it goes as follows: 1. Convert AdobeRGB ot sRGB in RAW conversion application. 2. Apply curves in RAW conversion application. 3. Apply color-correction in RAW conversion application. 4. Perform RAW conversion, and save to JPG. 5. Re-size in Photoshop. 6. Perform sharpening in Photoshop. I was hoping to skip writing an intermediate TIFF file, and go directly from RAW to JPG. Also, I'm OS X, and am using a trial version of CS5. Does any of this sound right? Any suggestions, corrections, or any alternate workflows (which do not include Aperture or Lightroom) are most welcome!
