you guys make a great case for maintaining one's anonymity on the internet. wouldn't your time be better spent gettin drunk or something?
It's far more entertaining watching Andrew demonstrate how little he knows about Photoshop. Besides with my brain tumour, I shouldn't really drink.  ;)

It seems that looking in the mirror is a subjective exercise for some (or two).

And the pissing match goes on.

It takes no more effort to open a RAW file and edit it and save it as in the open TIFF format than it does to save it to the proprietary PSD format. No difference in batch processing time with an action either. File sizes are equivalent with the two formats so no benefit to PSD in terms of file handling, storage, and archiving.

With Adobe continuing to buy up their competitors and shut them down and now forcing people to rent their software and use it online, I am moving away from all Adobe products over time. The transition is much easier with all my files in RAW, TIFF, and JPEG  format.

I have been using mostly TIFF as all the labs, printers, and graphics designers, and all the people overseas that I work with use TIFF and none use PSD format files. Initially I would have RAW, PSD, TIFF, and JPEG versions of images and it was crazy. At least I was never suckered into the Adobe DNG format which provides no advantages at all.

You're aware that Adobe owns and controls the TIFF format, right?

  DNG does have one advantage, IMHO, and that is one can edit a 'raw' image with a tool such as Lightoom and not have to worry about an XML sidecar file to store the edits.  Drives me crazy to have two files for each image to worry about.  Converting my raw NEFs to DNG when importing removes that necessity, as Lightroom's adjustments can be stored as metadata in the DNG file itself (as well as the LR database, of course) instead in a sidecar.

Another reason PSD's suck <g>. Over on PhotoNet, a photographer is using DropBox and uploading TIFF's and PSD's. Same images, two formats. PSD's are NOT previewing correctly on DropBox despite the browsers checking out as color managed (http://www.color.org/version4html.xalter). TIFF's are of course previewing correctly. It's not the browser, something DropBox is doing to show the previews, and it's wrong. I'm seeing the same issue. Fix is easy, don't use PSD. Or to quote: "That's another fine mess you've (PSD) gotten us into;D
