My D100 arrives today and I was starting to think about how this will change where I send my files for "printing." Two questions really....

First, if I shoot in the RAW mode, do I have to convert to jpeg for a online retailer to produce prints for me?

Second, I have used Clubphoto and Shutterfly but was wondering if there are any other recommendations from the group?

I have one more too, again, shooting RAW, does everyone store/archive the file in the native format and then just manipulate it (color, contrast, compression, etc) and save a copy for a given presentation? In other words, the original is still kept in its native format.
