That's exactly what I feel when I try raw and open it on whatever editing program (that tend to be very slow to operate BTW). I can change so many things that I get paralyzed.

I assume that within some time I would discover the workflow that best suits my needs. Unfortunately, having two small kids I can hardly keep up with taking some pictures from time to time...
