Scenario: Shooting editorial digital
Problem: Avoid overt time wasting, how can I stay digi workflow 'til the end?
Solution: Read on!

So I've been thinking of this whole ‘problem’ of going from digital to analog then back to digital (Canon 1Ds digital capture to CD-ROM, FedEx the CD to client, then they go back to digital); FedEx trucks, envelopes, labels, phonecalls, tracking numbers, delays and fees etc etc and, by Jeeves; I have an answer!

Next shot I do, I shoot RAW (max quality, 16 bit, final saved as a 100 Mb files) - like I always do, ‘process’ the clients select/s - tiny review JPEGs posted on website - in Photoshop and save the final to max-quality JPEG '10' and post that image online (client then grabs a teeny-tiny 8 bit, 4 Mb file that opens to a beautiful 50Mb file that’s 11 x 17 at 300dpi).

So long FedEx etc.

Smiling client gets the file in 2 minutes as opposed to 24 hours (or even more if over a weekend).

BUT

Client then takes the downloaded 4 Mb JPEG and immediately – BEFORE THEY MODIFY OR RE-SAVE IT AT ALL - save it to a LOSSLESS format either TIFF (industry-standard) or PSD (Adobe Photoshop file) or even the new PSB(?) (16 bit Photoshop files, shipping with Photoshop CS – I get mine next week).

So now they have a 50 Mb file (or 100 Mb, 16 bit file) that has all the information of it’s original. They received it in mere minutes, instead of day/s and you even save themselves a few bucks in FedEx charges too. Nice.

They give the 8 bit 50 Mb TIFF (etc) to their prepress folks and everyone should be a happy digi-camper.

Whadya reckon? Shooting RAW then saving to max quality JPEG I challenge anyone to pick the difference. Can you see a difference?
