    What "External Editing" Preferences in Lightroom?

    I'm curious about the settings others use for their Preferences for External Editing in Lightroom.

    I use the following:
    File Format: TIFF
    Color Space: ProPhoto RGB
    Bit Depth: 16 bits/Component
    Resolution: 300
    Compression: None

    A 12mb RAW file converts to a 50mb TIFF (+/-), depending on the original file.

    Am I doing the right thing for the image? Thanks for any advice, or comments.

    Cheers.

    I do the same, but I don't know if it's the 'best' way.

    I do use the same settings, apart for the 300dpi wich I prefer 288 dpi in relation with my printer resolution.

    Thanks. Just curious. Why "288"? What kind of printer do you have? Cheers.
