- In this chapter, we're going to talk about…what the Lightroom Elements workflow…looks like when you start with a non-RAW file,…a TIFF, or a PSD, or a JPEG,…rather than a RAW file…which we covered in the last chapter.…I've selected a non-RAW file, a TIFF,…here in Lightroom's library module.…To confirm that it's a TIFF…I'll press the spacebar to make it larger…and then I'll press I on the keyboard…to bring up this information overlay.…You can see that it has the TIFF suffix.…When you start with a non-RAW file,…like a TIFF, or a PSD, or a JPEG,…Lightroom presents you with several options…about how you want to edit the file in Elements.…
