    I use Photoshops own Raw converter with bridge, then CS3 after that.

    I love DxO Optics Pro. I can't recommend it enough - if you have a camera and lens that is supported by it, it is a night-and-day difference. They build custom profiles specific to your camera and lens to mathematically correct known aberrations.

    Yikes, $300. I like how it sounds though.

    I use Lightroom and do everything in there, with only a small smattering of really specific stuff in CS3.

    I'm pretty sure the normal version is $150. The Elite version, which has profiles for super high end cameras is the $300 one.

    The $150 one works for almost everybody, unless you have a $5000 camera.

    How do you use that? Just when you drag from bridge to Photoshop?

    In Bridge, just doubleclick on the .raw and it opens up in raw converter. In there, you make the most and vital changes such as contrast, exposure (this is a godsent), fill and whatnot. Photoshop is there for finetuning/manipulation/creativity.
    Raw should ALWAYS be taken. I can't express this enough. You can save an enormous amount of good shots if they are in raw which you can't in a compressed format.

    Yeah, I knew that and I understand about raw format, but that doesn't seem to save it from color death going into sRGB for web.

    The reason that colors get all ****ed up is because the display and the camera are not in sync. You need to get something like the Pantone Huey in order to make it work end-to-end.

    I'm more talking about saving it in different formats, like from printable .TIFF to .JPG and losing color there, which is a profile conversion issue.

    Whats wrong with just saving it from .raw to .jpg or .psd then? Just keep the original .raw all the time on a backup disk.

    I keep the original *.raws, but I want to be able to show previews in a format that is easily accessible and retains as much color information as possible.

    I had some fun with Macro today. Spring is on here so tulips everywhere.

    EOS 30D, Sigma 50mm Macro, 1:1, f16, 3.2 sec shutter, ISO 100.

    Auto color, auto contrast and reversed coloring in PS.

    Bugger, i noticed what it looks like hair or debris either in the flower or on the lens. Gotta check that.

    So it's 1:37 AM and I desperately needed a lightbox to photograph a project of mine for class. Here is my miserable jerry-rig and its outcome.
