My workflow from raw to print is a bit messy because there are some things I like to do in Lightroom
and some things in CS5.
E.g., the crop tool is excellent in LR, pretty rubbish in PS.
I'm wondering how destructive the process of moving a TIFF file between applications is...
Let's say I have a TIFF file recently out of PS. I import into LR, do nothing but crop it, then export,
i.e. resave, the TIFF file.
Have I lost any IQ doing this?? What do people think?
Since you don't alter any pixels with cropping I can't see what should happen to your file.
Exporting is another thing, but if its just a re-save - well - digital data usually doesn't fade when just pushing it around.
