A bit of both. Each image gets an individual treatment with cropping,
some tonal work with Photoshop Levels/Curves and some other bits and
bobs. But there is an opportunity for some batching at the end when I
resize and sharpen as almost all of my pics now end up as either
640x640 or 723x480. My export to JPEG tends to be individual to try
and get the best file size/image quality balance.
 Yes you read that right. My Canon has the same image proportions as
a 35mm neg rather than the more common digicam ratio of 1:0.75.
Now playing on iTunes: "Angel Of Harlem" by U2 from 'The Best Of
1980-1990' - a hit from way back in 1988
