Believe it or not, I've searched this topic quite a bit, but it entails so many different things that I can't get many ideas on the perspective I'm looking for. I am speaking strictly of software used and file format/management. I'm not looking for info on what post processing you perform on files, I want to know what formats you use and keep, and what software you use to perform each step. Only software that can run on a PC please as I don't have an Apple and don't plan on buying one. For example: Starting with a RAW file on SD/CF card. Do you view/cull from the card or transfer all files to your hd? What software do you use to transfer and which do you use to view/cull? After that, what software do you use to PP or catalog your file? Do you use an intermediate file format (TIFF, DNG) or do you just PP the RAW files? Do you export all file as jpg or only as needed? Do you keep RAW, TIFF, and JPG of each photo? I hope that explains what I'm looking for. Just trying to find ideas on whats the most efficient/best workflow.
