and when I convert them into JPEG using Picasa 3 they still won't upload onto Facebook. What can I do to convert my RAW photos into JPEGs that will be post-able?

Are you meeting the size / file limit?

Why on earth would you want to post RAW's to Facebook? Edit them and resize as needed and then post.

Raw files are not image files, they are the basic sensor readings that have to be extensively processed in order to be turned into images. Plus, every camera model has its own version of Raw so there are hundreds of varieties in use. You can't expect Facebook to do your processing.

I tried uploading the JPEG of the same pic, and even that wouldn't work.

Please give us the step-by-step specifics of what you are doing...?

I think there is an echo in here ....... ;)

Converting to jpeg without resizing is going to yield a 4-6 meg file which is likely too big for facebook. I don't use FB so I wouldn't know but I suspect the same thing.

Copy/paste from Facebook Help:

Here are a few troubleshooting tips:

    Make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash. This fixes the problem most of the time. First you'll need to uninstall any outdated versions of Adobe Flash that you might have on your computer. Then, get the latest version of Adobe Flash. Make sure to quit all web browsers during the installation process.


    Try using unedited versions of photos. Editing photos using other software beforehand can cause them to upload incorrectly or fail to upload entirely.


    Check the photo format. We only support certain types of image formats, so we recommend using .jpg, .bmp, .png, .gif, and .tiff files.


    Check the size of the photo. We recommend the photo does not exceed 15MB.


    Check your browser. Make sure you're using the latest version of your browser and the most up-to-date version of Adobe Flash.

That size should be all right. FB will automatically downsize it. Once uploaded, your original photo of (say) 5MB will become a lot smaller on their server (less than 1MB... just a wild guess).
