Photoshop workflow.

Wow. I've just sat thru 17 videos and taken 6.5 pages of notes on workflow techniques in ACR and Photoshop.

This www applies from capture in RAW and processing in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) or capture in JPEG and processing in CS3. (This will apply to all CS versions)

go to http://www.cbrush.com/

Chris deals specifically with CS3

now here's a tip from me. You can also process JPEG images in ACR for finite adjustments without data loss. I love this. I love this a lot.

Go to Edit/Preferences/File Handling
click in the box for Prefer Adobe Camera Raw for JPEG Files.
ok.

From here on in all JPG files will open in ACR for loss-less data adjustments. Very powerful stuff!!!!!!!

It does add another step to processing and time to go thru it, but the results are so so worth it. If it ticks you off and you would like to revert back to JPG files open straight into PS then just untick that same box from before and ok.

viola.
