    If you open a CR2 file in photoshop, it opens the raw window to do modifications right?
    If you click "Open File" is that basically starting to edit a JPG? Or do you still have the RAW ability when you modify the image?

    I find it easier to use curves while in regular photoshop rather than the raw editing in photoshop...

    Do you know what I mean?
    I am confused and not exactly sure. Any clarifications about each?

    Im talking about photoshop CS3 btw

    Thanks!

    Nope, once you click the Open button, there's no way back to the camera RAW plugin.

    But note that when you click open if you have the right options selected it'll open as an AdobeRGB colour space 16bit images. So while you don't have access to the sliders you can still do all the same things and suffer the same lower loss in image quality.

    After you edit and save your drawing from photoshop, you can always go back to the original raw image. It will be unchanged. It won't reflect any of the changes made in photoshop.

    Remember, any changes you make in Camera Raw can be reversed, even after you press Done or Open Image.
