PS is clearly an option, but as the option comes some 100 bugs the option is rapidly no option anymore
PI is an will be the only processing tool i will work with
That's fine, Lex. I do image processing, I'm not member of any affinity group. I'm not encouraging anyone to use any particular tool, but the "Save as Jpeg" tool in Photoshop to me is more versatile than the one in PixInsight, and I'm not going to do it in PI just for the heck of it, although I know others might. This without getting into the costs issue, that's a separate matter. To me it's all about efficiency - if I want my JPEG files not to exceed certain size, I can get the job done faster in Photoshop, and I don't think quality is going to suffer because of that.
It's not that I'm not loyal to a particular software. It's that I use whatever I think does the job better. Quite a crime for some, but not for me.
PS: I don't understand what you meant about 100 bugs... AFAIK, Photoshop has its own idiosyncrasies and often times likes to do things in a very, um, peculiar way, but I don't think it's a buggy application. I know Juan may send me a PM for saying this, but I get more exception errors with PI than with PS. In fact, ask Steve Lesigh - he got one during the second workshop at AIC the other week. The software did not crash, and that was good, but chances are the little window scared him for a bit. I know it scared me.
Anyway, enough about that....
