So my CS5 will not read my Canon 6D files when I shoot in RAW. I figured out how to convert(dowloaded the DNG converter) but now a new problem! Can someone explain this...
The photo that I have taken on my Canon 6D is 19.1 MB. When I take it off my camera and onto my computer.
I had to download the DNG converter for my CS5 to read the file.
When I take the photo into CS5 my Camera RAW window opens up (before it goes directly into Photoshop).
I tweak my pic and then hit "open"...it opens in photoshop and then I save my file to jpg....and the file size is now 9MB...why is this happening? Why is it going from 19 to 10?! I dont want to lose that much information? Is it because its going to jpg?
The reason I am exporting the final as a jpg is because I am buring it onto a disc and I dont know another format that most computers can read? For example I am giving some photos of a valentines shoot to my in laws and I dont know what thier computer can read...so I pick jpg?
I thought about upgrading to CS6...but someone posted that this will not fix my problem of photoshop reading my RAW files?
I also have lightroom 4 but have not opened it yet...any suggestions?
Can someone help out? This may be an easy fix?!

You might want to add the information about the need for a JPEG to that thread, as a Reply.
