Hi, this is my first post here after being pointed here by a mate.
I actually have a heap of other questions to ask , but today I ran into a particularly annoying problem that I cant solve.
I have been post processing a whole heap of RAW's from a recent holiday and my workflow is as follows;
- From Bridge open the file in Camera RAW (16 bit),
- Make changes in Camera RAW (generally only using the 'Basic' tab),
- Open the file in Photoshop,
- Apply USM (sometimes selective), dodge and burn etc, and
- Convert from 16 bit to 8 bit and save as a jpeg (highest quality).
In one case I did some selective sharpening and I saved it as a PSD before flattening the image and saving as a jpeg.
When I viewed the files using the Bridge slidshow I noticed that none of my sharpening was present in the jpegs but was in the PSD. After double checking that I had saved correctly I tried saving as a 16 bit tif also - same problem.
The thing is, when I view the files using picassa viewer everything is fine. The tifs and jpegs have a little more colour and contrast than the PSD for some reason, but the sharpening is all honkey dorey. So it seems to be just Bridge displaying the photo wrong.
Has anyone else noticed this? Am I doing something wrong? This is very frustrating.
Sorry for such an epic first post. Hopefully in time I can contribute to this site. For now I am not sure I can add much - I am fairly new to it all.
Also, sorry if this has been covered before but I didnt even know what to search for.
