So, I have my DSLR set to save my pictures as both JPEG and RAW...which results in HUGE files...is it worth saving both versions on my computer?? It would be nice to be able to go in and edit them with the photoshop RAW editor.

Also...while doing horseback riding pictures (using a high shutter speed) should I just shoot in JPEG?

Any info is great!

Can you give us specifics on how big the card is, what kinda camera, what type of card?

Oh, and no, it is not worth it to save RAW and JPEG. If you will not be doing extensive editing on the files, just keep the JPEG files. If you will be doing extensive editing, just delete the JPEG and keep the RAW.
