    I have to confess I always shot in the JPEG format and saved it as a PSD and went on to editing. I seem to always have been to busy to go to RAW and learn post proccessing RAW.

    It's time for me to step up to the plate.

    I could use some help in starting to edit RAW.
    I have Digital Photo Professional.
    What is the basic workflow?
    Any help would be appreciated in pointing me in the right direction.

    I generally do little more in RAW than adjust exposure, then export to tiff and go from there in Photoshop.

    If you want a "workflow" I suggest you pick workflow oriented software like Lightroom or similar RAW editors.

    Otherwise if you're more of an edit single photos one at a time type guy then the best way to start is just open the RAW file in Photoshop. Check your settings (especially the first time). Make sure you're output is 16bits or you lose the benefits, and I suggest setting the colour to sRGB not AdobeRGB as it'll save you a lot of hassles for now.

    Step 2. Play with the sliders :D
