OK, everyone, this conversation about PhotoShop tweaking in LAB colors is
great!  Is there a down-side to just automatically doing it that way, is
that what you all actually do??

If PS thinks in LAB colors then when you convert to them from the raw scan
in RGB there is no loss of info, right???  Can you keep going back and
forth without losing info?  What about CMYK to LAB?

And thank you for explaining about LZW compression, for those of us storing
grayscale versions of what are essentially line drawings that is MOST
useful.  I automatically de-selected LZW a couple of months ago after
having problems sending some files to the *OTHER* platform (thank you Brad)
but now I see it can be VERY useful to me! - even zip space costs money!
