    Resizing raw image

    I just found out i can resize the RAW image with DXO. It will resize down to 50%. It will also upsize the RAW image to 200%. Is there a big advantage in doing this in the raw form? One plus i see is all the raw edits are applied to the resized image, so i won't have to resharpen or anything later. Any other benefits? What would you use the 200% for, printing large prints?

    No - not really. If you're down-sampling it can make the image faster to work on on a slow PC, but that's about the only reason I can think of.

    Nothing that I can think of - there are better ways to up-sample later in the workflow, but the printer driver always up-samples anyway so general consensus is doing it in RAW or even Photoshop doesn't make a lot of difference.
