YOU need to learn how to read. I have been using Lightroom since version 1.0 was beta. I know exactly how it operates and correctly denoted so above. READ the whole statement. With working on a TIFF in photoshop, you are either working on the original OR a copy. An original TIFF file gets you no benefit over shooting RAW in terms of storage space. THAT was my point.
Again, untrue. Everything you wore is still not true. You want me to read it again?
OK let's break it down.
1. With the RAW file in Lightroom, you always have the untouched original file.
Untrue. If you edit that file in external editor like Capture NX (easy to set it up in LR) you will edit original.
And, you'll 'touch' it.
2. If you shoot just TIFF *AND* export that into Photoshop, you have lost your original.
Untrue. Only if you edit original you will loose it. It doesn't matter whether the file was saved in TIFF or something else. The originator of this post asked about benefit of saving in TIFF format. I get what you trying to say but for someone that doesn't know LR that well, such info can be misleading.
3.To preserve that you would have to export a second copy of the TIFF file, which kind of defeats the whole purpose.
I have no clue what you trying say by that so I'm not going to even try to comment on that.
