Hi Jim, thanks for your comments!

I particularly like the tip about dragging the RAW file on to the Photoshop icon to launch Camera RAW. That speeds up the process of getting the image into Photoshop. Too bad it's still a little weird getting the edited version back into iPhoto 5.

    Hey Derrick,

    It seems to me that the process of dealing with RAW files is exactly the same process necessary to deal with images that you want to edit in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements with layers. In those cases, you have to save as a .psd file to maintain the layers, and since iPhoto "knows" the file is a .jpg, you must save outside of iPhoto and import back in (it handles .psd fine for import), after which you can initiate edits from within iPhoto to Photoshop.

    cheers... -Adam
