Damn! That is one badly designed web site. However, he has some valid
Just to clarify things, if you are going to isolate JPEG editing to LR then
you will have a true non-destructive workflow, especially if you only edit LR
Virtual copies, but once you leave the LR environment all bets are off. An
exported file converted to JPEG, or from an LR edited JPEG original which has
been resized and subject to compression is undoubtably lossy. That is one
reason to follow the method I detailed for re-editing exported files JPEG, or
So, LR, or RAW, always start on a LR Virtual copy.
