Thank you for the info. I'm very new to most of this. Upgraded my iMac
(2009) to 10.10.1 and now my older CS5 photoshop is not compatible. Lightroom still runs.
LR can't read the "IIQ" format which Phase One uses.
I have Capture One which of course does read these files., but it crashes a lot.
So since Im just getting started with this new camera (Phase One IQ180) and printer (Canon 5100) and do not know much at all about workflow, color matching etc., I want to start over with a clean capable system before I purchase new Photoshop versions (which i never mastered in CS5 anyway). The Phase files are very large (raw 75-85M) and printing out a 17 x22 inch photo on my Canon 5100 took hours to process.
Can you recommend a good source for learning workflow? Im looking at the Xrite I1sis X1 automated unit. I had one of their lesser units which I thought was a toy.
Anyway, up to now I have been hit and miss getting my desired output. Im sure there is a definite sequence I should know for proper processing to printing. Any online or other instructional recommendations would be much appreciated.
