    So I started shooting in raw, when I edit them, should I save them in JPEG or RAW? I upload them mainly to Deviant Art and sometimes make selects for printing. Any suggestions?

    Thanx!

    I tend to save fine art images as a lossless file, and commercial work always as a TIFF. I'l export to JPEG for things that are going to the Web in the appropriate color space but I only print proofs from JPEGs. If you're sure you'll never make any additional changes then JPEG is fine, but every time you edit a JPEG, you lose information that you can never get back, as well as the conversion to 8-bit.
