wait what? Are you shooting raw? If so there should be raw files on the camera when you drag and drop / whatever you do. If they are jpegs, you will have jpeg in camera. I don't know of anything that will automatically convert them without a prompt.

Well I'm really new to the digital camera stuff so bare with me. But I have it set as RAW plus L. Then there is a feature called just RAW so I'm confused is RAW plus L jpeg? :confused:

Raw + L jpeg would be raw + a large quality jpeg. It creates two copies of the file - one raw and one large jpeg of each picture.

How are you transferring the files from your camera to the computer? You may only be pulling off the .jpgs...

That's the most likely cause, and can be fixed by an inexpensive card reader (sandisk makes nice usb and firewire readers). The other cause could be with the program you use, I know LR has an option to treat jpg+raw as one file, perhaps others do too, unless you can't even get them on the computer, in which case we are back to 1.

How is it a windows things? People have been pulling raws from camera with windows fine for as long as raws have been available. Depending on the transfer mode of connection; a card reader functions as the exact same device as a camera connection.

I hate to say it, but this is standard stuff, you really need to get acquainted with your camera.

Like so: Click

You need the proper driver / software / whatever.

With a card reader life get's mutch easier, not to mention it'll download faster...

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. :( Anyway, I'm pulling the images off the camera by USB. Then the Scanner and Camera Wizard comes up with the images. Is there another way besides a Card reader to use the USB and get the RAW images off? Another thing what program opens RAW files I downloaded a raw file last night from a website just to check it out and PS doesn't open RAW images. Any Ideas on that?

Thanks

If you are using a Canon, then use the Canon software that came with your camera for the RAW files. If you don't have the disc, then you can go to the website and download it.

I would really get a card reader, $10-20 for a decent one and they are sooo much faster.

You need to use the software that came with the camera for the raw files. If not you can use Faststone imageviewer(free) to view raw files that you put on your computer. PS does not read RAW.

I recommend if you have Canon install the software on the disk. DPP will allow you to see the RAW files. Then from there you can make them TIFF to move to PS. Now if you are using another brand Nikon, Samsung, Sony camera then they also come with software to read RAW.

Also it may be faster to check your product guide for information and answers. This forum is a great resource but since you are learning that guide should be your BFF.

A card reader is the way to go but that is personal preference and is not something that is NEEDED.
