    I have been reading about Lightroom. (Currently using PSCS2.)
    I rarely shoot RAW format - generally highest quality JPEG that my two
    cameras will shoot.
    Is there any advantages to using Lightroom if I remain basically a
    JPEG shooter?

    May I be the first to congratulate you on being good enough that you do not
    need raw. I just love having 4 stops of latitude in post processing with

    Lightroom works with JPGs, so if you're interested in what Lightroom offers
    functionality-wise, go for it.

    Never said I was "good enough", just felt it was not worth - to me -
    the extra time and effort. And I seriously doubt that you get 4 stops
    latitude from RAW. Most I have heard most people say is around 2.
    (But thanks for the "compliment" anyway.)
