    Of course! I shoot in RAW and process to TIFF, then adjust curves, levels, and cropping, then to JPEG 100% quality for storage.

    What do you mean by 'edit'? I process all of my photos.

    You cannot display the raw data created by the sensor on a screen and you cannot print it. It needs to be processed into a TIFF, JPEG or anything else which is displayable. Either you do that manually, or you let the camera do the processing according to the parameters the manufacturer thought right.

    I guess you either refer to what I would call postprocessing, after that conversion (e.g. like HDR-play) ... or you refer to "editing" (such as cloning out things you do not like)

    Think about it this way...

    Someone shoots photos on B&W film. Obviously, the film needs to be developed...so that's what the photographer does. Maybe he uses certain chemicals to get the look he wants. Maybe he leaves it in the solution for a little longer. Maybe he uses a certain paper to make the prints look how he wants. Would that be considered editing the photos?

    Now if you did something similar in the 'digital darkroom', is that any different? I adjust my shots, first in a RAW converter, then in photoshop. Often, it's not drastic changes...just adjustments to make it look how I want. Layers, Curves, Hue/Sat, sharpening etc.

    I shoot and process in raw 100% of the time and on odd occasion grab an image that has some issues and edit it just to keep up on photoshop.

    I edit 95% of the time and almost love playing with the editing more than actually taking the picture. it's fun :)
