Thanks Bob for describing your workflow! I think I have to write my own workflow down, and ask some feedback for that... there's nothing that Nikonians can't fix, right?
One thing that I've learned during dark ages (read: Paint Shop Pro 4.0 and later) that testing new ways to get in same result is one of the most educational ways to achieve PP-skills.
Nowdays, I'm having less time to PP because photographing itself takes most of my times, and I'm going to be something called part-time pro.. I have several paid shoots per year, but it still gives me a lot of time to really get into the PP when talking about paying customers products. I can trick&try/fail/learn/ with my own pictures, but when talking about paid products, I want to use the "best" ways to achieve professional looking end products to my customers.
I have still lot to learn with CNX2, and threads like this is leading the way.
