well mines pretty basic you are probably looking for pro input which i do not have, but i hate too see a good thread go unanswered.
--shoot just raw, got tired of keeping track of all the dupes.
--import using lightroom, in folders by year-shot date.
--go through, rating keepers, rejecting others (x), try my best to keyword stuff right away and put certain things in a couple collections. (hdr, panoramas, work website photos)
--i set new defaults with higher clarity and contrast and lower sharpening, and auto lens corrections. i am going to set up some noise reduction for higher isos, just found out you can set different defaults for different isos.
--i have a few export settings set up,
one with a 1000px longest side jpg resize at like 98% quality for facebook, that puts them in a subfolder.
one full quality and size jpg subfolder
several for a website i maintain, just standardized resizes and put in a certain location
one full quality choose folder later for putting prints on memory stick.
--i use photoshop for stitching etc. and sometimes i mess around with other things, i find most free plugins are just cheesy filter effects, all the adjustments i need are in lightroom.
i pay the 10 bucks a month, its a good deal in my opinion.
why do you transfer with bridge and not lightroom? i found bridge to be redundant when i got lightroom.
have you tried the adaptive wide angle in photoshop? it fixes distortion manually very nicely, but there are a lot of esoteric adjustments that are not well explained, you kind of have to mess around to see what does what. I have de-fished some photos and de-curved some panos and been happy with the results if not the time it took. I looked at DxO but its expensive for what it does and I live in a small town and dont get to do much architechtural city stuff that needs good correction. putting some vertical lines on trees and a horizontal one on the horizon works good on shots from my bower fisheye.
Thanks for sharing.
I shall importing with LR. Indeed it seemed cludgy importing with Bridge and then moving to LR.
Will try the adaptive wide angle. I use the Bower 14mm, and it definitely needs some help with the distortion.
@Sanj: I have seen some huge posts when people rant about/against Canon, etc., so I am sure size is not a limiting factor here
