Peter ... thanks, it seems to be working fairly well @ Drag and Drop.
Not perfect @ color profile variance, sharpness etc., but certainly in the ballpark to skip all the iterations as if I had recorded an action all along the way. A handy piece of the puzzle to be sure.
As long as I remind myself to downsample the raw, instead of using the jpg, the color profile variance won't be an issue ... and remember that if I do any pixel editing (i.e. spotting, sharpening, blur, etc.) it will have to be repeated. Those things are pretty straight forward to repeat. It's those tonal values that can be a pain to replicate.
Hmmm, at mask size differential.
I still haven't figured out the save load @ layers ... a little help
+1 @ multiple workflows. I'm doing a fair amount of mask painting in conjunction with the layers currently. The thing I like about that is that I can not only dial in the adjustment and the opacity, but it can be further refined via mask opacity and feathering, etc., particularly as the iterative process progresses ... easy to backtrack and change the mask opacity selectively.
I haven't ventured into "smart objects" yet.
