I understand the difference between a jpeg and a Tiff
that way with the posts you made, trying unsuccessfully to equate a JPEG in a raw with a raw!
I guess you never have any desire or need to go back an modify a wip image, rather than restarting the raw or modifying the flattened tiff. As you know, things like sharpening or blurring in a flattened cannot be easily fix, but are easy in the layered version.
First, the above sentence is in severe need of editing and clarification. I don't know what a wip image
is. That said, I can count on one hand the times I've gone back to the original raw and started from scratch. And I've been processing images since 1990! Both for myself and others (for a few years as a service bureau). How's that as a start.
Your signon is 'DigitalDog'; mine is 'jrsforums'. As you (I think) I have the same signon for all of the forums I participate in. You want yourself know for promotional purposes. I have no need to.
Again you've missed the point and the functionality. First, there's full transparency as to who I am, links to my web page etc. You could be a 10 year old boy or girl, playing on daddy's computer. There is no transparency as to who you are, what you do, and other than some odd ideas about image processing, you could be the CEO of Corel as far as anyone know.
I am an amateur, retired from years working in sales, marketing, product development/planning/support/management for a major computer manufacturer. I have never claimed to be anything else.
Let me point out you've never claimed anything up to this point! Thanks for that tidbit however.
While I disagree with you, I try to respond in a civil manner. I see no need for you to make personal attacks....don't you read Michael's posts...or can you just ignore them.
My apologies if you were insulted.
I never equated jpeg and a tiff...and clearly said it was analogous
No, it seems you equated a JPEG pulled out of a raw with the raw. If you didn't, you were equally unclear as to what your point was. You're apparently trying to link an issue with old proprietary raws that can't be rendered but can have a JPEG extracted as being analogous to a fully rendered high bit, high gamut image which isn't close to warrant an analogy. I'm not buying it for the reasons I illustrated.
