Can't convert Canon Raw to JPG

Hi Guys. New to this forum, so hi!

What has brought me here is a problem. I bought a Canon 6D mark II a few months ago and have been shooting in JPG very happily. I have tried shooting in Raw - which works fine on-camera - but when I try to convert Raw to JPG on my computer using UFRAW or PhotoScape, I get an output that you can see in the uploaded image.

I haven't posted two images here. The output is actually a double image.

I went to the camera shop where I bought my camera and discovered that it was not a problem specific to my camera but it also happened with their in-shop 6Dii too. The guys in the shop had no idea what was causing it.

I was wondering what could have gone wrong. What solutions are there? Would this happen if I used Photoshop? I would like to get it sorted as I accidentally shot all my friends 50th birthday photos in Raw (about 150 or so) so I would like to get it sorted.

Cheers guys.

My first suggestion would be to install Canon's DPP software and use that. It is great for those who don't really want to process RAW files since being Canon's proprietary software the default conversion honours all of your in camera settings, something no other software can do.DPP is actually quite a good choice for a converter for Canon images in it's Version 4 form.

As to your specific problem my guess would be that the software you have doesn't support the 6DII and so it is reading both the RAW image data and the JPEG preview out and consulting them.

I never heard of UFRAW, so went to its website and noticed that the 6D II is not in the list (external link) of supported cameras.

As others have said, use the software that came with your camera, DPP 4.

Video #3 - Editing images. At about minute 9 it tells you how to convert and save.

You probably know this already, but just in case you don't, I thought I'd mention it:

You need to use a program that can read RAW files when you download the photos onto your computer. . My guess is that you aren't downloading the photos into a RAW compatible program (a.k.a. RAW converter).


.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Thanks Guys. You've been really helpful. Thankfully, I found a quick fix. On the Canon 6D ii, it is possible to convert CRAW to JPG before downloading to computer.

I will get hold of Canon DPP as soon as I have some time.

See you all soon, hopefully.

I suspect that converting in camera and downloading is not getting you any benefit from shooting RAW. Continue to shoot in jpg until you get to a point where you can do a conversion on the computer. You're just needlessly complicating things.

I didn't realize, but it seems possible to do limited photo editing in the 6D2. See link (external link). Still seems kludgy, though.

Yes Archibald. It is limited in terms of what you can do and also in terms of the size of the image you have to work with (the screen on the camera).

Welcome and the only thing I’ll mention is your camera should have come with a CD that has DPP already on it . Just use it to intall on your computer if you have not done so already cause CD usually at some point will have you to attach your camera to your computer during installation .

If you are converting to JPEG in camera then you are completely bypassing all of raw's advantages and are no better off then if you shot in JPEG to begin with. Does your software read Adobe .DNG files? If so you can download an Adobe converter for free and convert your raw .cr2 files to .DNG which is Adobe proprietary raw format. I'm not familiar with a Canon CRAW file size designation, but unless size is an issue for you, I would shoot full sized raw files.
