hopefully someone can help me get my head around this.
Up until now i have used a program called IMATCH to import all my photos to and would save both the DNG file and the JPG - i would edit the DNG with photoshop and save a JPG copy over the original JPG image from the camera (not necessarily every photo but those i thought was worth it).
So i end up with lots of files DNG and JPG of every shot.
People i have heard use lightroom to process their photos and therefore only end up needing the DNG file only.
I have downloaded LR trial and i can import my DNG no problem - can do Wb adjustment etc no worries. However if i need to edit with photoshop - to say remove noise or another editing process - i can export to PS no worries - however when i make the changes and hit save it creates another copy of the file this time in TIFF format.
If this happens every time - wont i end up with the same situation of a DNG file and a TIFF file for pretty much every image ? - this doesnt seem to make me any better off as ideally i thought i would end up with the DNG which can always be reset to its original state?
I hope my question makes some sense to somebody as im struggling to get my head around it and am quickly running out of storage room on the PC
