Ok. So I finally had a chance to decently test out my first DSLR today and now I've come up with another problem: storage space. I am currently taking my photos in RAW and the gamut set to AdobeRGB. Now, I am stuck with about 30 decent photos all in RAW format sitting on my hard drive taking up space. I know that I will start running out of disk space fast. My question: In what format and resolution is pretty decent to save my pictures as? In RAW, each photo averages about 9.5 megs. When converted to TIF at 240 dpi and no resizing, they are about 29 megs each. I want to be able to call upon my photos again to print or edit. I keep hearing to save as a TIF first, then edit, then print, net, etc. If I decide to dump my RAWs after converting to TIF, what dpi should I save my TIFs in? What are some of your methods of storing photos? Of course, I will be backing the photos up on DVD when my storage folder reaches around 4 gigs. Thanks for your help and advice. *Oh BTW, I'm a Photoshop junkie. All converting and editing is done in CS2 unless I find a better way.
