Jpegs for output

56b2b043b5407_rawworkflow5_opt.thumb.jpe

Of course, I don’t edit files just to archive them! My files, and yours, can have one, two or three destinations - to be printed, uploaded to the web, or sent to the customer.

Except in very rare circumstances, all three of those output destinations require Jpeg format. So Jpeg files are very important at the end of my workflow, but here’s the critical point: Jpegs are disposable files. I make ’em, I use ’em, I throw ’em away.

You say you throw away the jpg. I do this as mom-tog, so mostly my family pics. Do you also throw away family jpgs and keep the completed psd? and just convert to jpg when you need it?

That's such a good question!  No, for family pics it's probably ok to keep jpegs, except for photos that you did significant Photoshop work to, I guess.

maybe the most Backwards thing I do.  I have always kept the JPEGS and archived them because they take up less space and I delete raws.  again though most of my work is sports so it is not that vital.  at least in my opinion

Ok how do I check the quality of the jpeg please? You said you save yours at 70, just trying to work out how I can check mine? Sorry for all the questions, but no point me pretending to know what I'm doing.. ?
