    Do any of you save full size PDF's after Post processing before resizing?

    I wish there was a way to record what changes I make in my PP so that if I ever want to go back to the original Full Size I can make it identical without playing around for hours. Anyway to do this besides manually writing every step down?

    hmm, you could save as a psd...if you're talking about making the same changes to a pp'd file...or create actions if you're talking about applying the same pp steps to a number of images...not sure why you'd want to go back and apply the exact same pp to an image you've allready pp'd.

    because I resize, then PP.

    Then decide I want to print it out, and its not big enough, then have to go back and re do everything. need to change this

    take the original, save as .psd with each adjustment on a new layer, then save as something else and resize for web or whatever

    depends. if its a tricky lighting or color balance then yeah, or if the whole shoot is the same lighting etc and I can make adjustmens on just one layer instead of all of them then yeah.


    but if I'm out shooting all over the place all day, then no. with the way I shoot, i'd spend more time proccessing then shooting. If you can nail your exposures and know your histogram info, there isn't a huge advantage, and the proccessing bottleneck depresses me.

    and some depends on what it is. weddings of course, no on sports/wildlife/walk around. portraits just depends.

    in a week in the dominican last summer I shot 12 gigs of jpegs. if that was raw, well you know. I'd have spent more time processing then I did on the trip :noes: I' m betting it'll be 20 gigs this summer :o

    Jesus. You pp AFTER resize?

    wow. Any reason you decided to go that route?
