    Light bulb over my head...

    The standard code in a comic strip illustration for a person getting an idea is a light bulb over that person's head. Well put a bulb over my head! I don't know how I could have been so dumb

    My problem is that I receive numerous images of rescue dogs from our Rescue Volunteers all over the USA. These images are usually terrible and I use Photoshop CS6 to spruce them up to a point where hopefully, the dogs will attract some interest from potential adopters when posted on Internet rscue sites...

    I always shoot RAW and like to do the first edits in Camera RAW. I don't know why but, only today have I started opening those JPEG images in Camera RAW. Since I am working with white dogs, the eye dropper white balance control of Camera Raw really helps as does many of the other controls such as vibrance.

    This has consideably speeded up my post production of the various images sent to me. Why have I not worked this way before - pure ignorance I guess.

    BTW: The difference between ignorance and stupidity is that ignorance can be cured by education while stupidity is often a terminal condition...

    I understand your situation, Richard. I have been told so many times that my primary software, which is made by Nikon and of course converts RAW files captured by Nikon cameras, isn't intended for use on JPEGs. Every time the subject comes up, I ask what I should have used instead to post-process my 3000 JPEGs that are scanned slides.

    It puts me in mind of my favourite quote from the German poet Schiller:

    Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain
    Though I think it sounds better in the original:

    Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens
