File Saving: I’ll save several versions of every processed image.
1) Original image out of the camera – 6000x4000 gives a 24MPx image that takes up ~35Mb – do not alter!
2) If I plan to print an image I'll save it as a TIFF. This may make the image get as large as 144Mb! but it will look great on photo paper.
3) If I plan to post an image to my blog then I'll downsize the processed image to 2048 pixels on the long side. This will give an image that looks nice on even the largest monitors. I'll sometimes add a touch of Unsharpening (Amount=50%, Radius=0.5, Threshold=0) and save as a JPG with no compression.
