Tech Details: Hawaii
I used one 32GB Lexar 600x CF card, and started a new folder each day.
Most of these shots are exactly as they came out of the camera as JPGs. If I played with them, I'll mention it, if not, it's what came out of the camera.
iView lets me see everything I shot. I used it to select the good shots. I dragged each to Photoshop CS4 from iView. I used a previously saved action to make each image 768 pixels wide, smart sharpen at 141% at 0.2 pixels, and add my © KenRockwell.com bug with its usual exclusive font and the same drop-shadowing I've been using for years. I Saved-for-Web at 51% quality from Photoshop CS4 to make the images you see here.
After the web-ready images were created, I used Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 to make these pages and drop-in the images. (Adobe Dreamweaver CS2 was awful, but CS5 looks swell.)
Because I set my camera to give me exactly the results I want, I didn't have to do any editing or manipulation; I simply used my preset action in Photoshop to make my final web-ready image in one click. What you're seeing is what came out of the camera without having to waste any time correcting anything. The 7D's LCD is phenomenal: what I see on-camera is what I got, so I make my critical color adjustments at the best time to do it: as I'm shooting.

All the details are in my Canon 7D User's Guide, which I wrote right after I returned from this Maui trip.
I made great use of the 7D Total Recall memories, which I preset to let me swap among banks of settings for each kind of situation instantly.
