I'm finally getting all geared up for processing my digital images in bulk after realizing I've got a back log of literally hundreds of images! (Btw, I shoot mainly RAW.)
But I realize there are some tight issues for me to deal with, which I hope CS members could kindly advice and share:
1. We know that sRGB is for monitor display; Adobe RGB if want to print out the images. Problem is, if I want to BOTH display my images on screen (say for friends to see) and also print some of them out, how do I save the images? Do you all have 2 sets of images, one in sRGB, and for those to be printed, in Adobe RGB?
2. After the RAW conversion, do you save the images in TIFF or jpg? TIFF sucks memory but is lossless even after many editings. But this takes up unnecessary disk space and print labs usually only require jpg to print.
3. Images that appear perfectly sharp on screen usually print soft. For printing, I notice I need to sharpen even more than what I get on screen. But this becomes bad on screen as they look over-sharpened. So again HOW?? Do you all again create 2 sets of images? One for viewing on screen another for printing?
*headache* Digital photography is fun but post-processing is NOT! For me at least.
Would certainly appreciate any help! Thanks....
