    Of course keep the RAW files. This is the digital negative (original). Just like the film negatives you take to the lab for printing. You don't bring the photos to the lab for printing do you?
    Take the shot!

    I convert all my CR2 (Canon RAW) to DNG and keep them well and safe.

    I don't save it in PSD. Only JPG. But I *always* keep the RAW. You'll find that over time your post processing skills improve (gotta persevere, exert some serious effort and all that) and that's when the RAW files come in handy.

    My logic is that, once i have the .raw in .psd format, the 'negative' is still in .psd also...

    Especially if you have a lot of workflow done, i'd want to save that as well, and .psd can store that..

    Anyone else shares my logic?

    That's exactly what I do. Sometimes, I go back to the .psd file and make further adjustments so that I don't have to start all over again.

    i store RAW

    and jpg, that's it.

    PSD is damn sick, file size wise.

    .psd each file, MASSIVE MASSIVE...

    been saving in .raw and .psd
    but for "multiple exposure" shots, i prefer to save in .psd with all the photos inside the .psd, rather than individual raw

    I keep multiple files - RAW, psd and final jpegs. In complex jobs, I also keep progressive jpegs as a record.

    Space is dirt cheap these days. Why risk anything?
