New Non-Destructive Imaging White Paper

A new white paper has been added to Adobe's digital photography white papers and primers section of their web site. Non-Destructive Imaging: An Evolution of Rendering Technology by by Peter Krogh is a must read.

You might be tempted to ask, why destroy your photos? Aren’t you supposed to make them better? The word destructive is not referring to destruction of the photo’s goodness, but rather destruction of the original data in the image.So while you may make a photo “better” by lightening up shadow detail, you may do it in a way that destroys the original information. This paper concentrates on ways to adjust photos without losing the original information."
