groovygyrl, I think what the others are saying is you need to correct your workflow. Here's part of mine--- Open Raw file and then when finished open that in photoshop. Do your work on the open image(like levels, etc) and then save it as a .psd in it's native size. When you want to make a jpg you reopen the saved .psd, make a duplicate of it and then save to .jpg. Never ever make a jpg directily from the original .psd.
