Moving this discussion to the Adobe Camera RAW forum.
JemmaKay most manufacturers who utilize the Camera RAW format usually include a utility to convert and use those files. You may want to look at the software which came with your camera as a possible solution.
Other users in this forum may have additional suggestions. It would be beneficial though if we know which Adobe Creative software and version which you currently have available to you? Also which camera is producing these RAW images?
You can convert your images in the included Mac program Preview, using Export off of the File menu.
I am an amteur photographer for an Amateur Dramatic company
When I take the Front of House pictures the stage lighting produces many different colours
I used my Canon 600D to take RAW & jpeg pictures
I was in a rush as I take the pictures at the Dress the night before then I need to sort & print & get them to the theatre before the audience arrives
When I inserted the cd that came with my newish Canon camera, the Mac software didn't seem to load properly
I downloaded some software from the internet
I didn't have time other than to simpley click a button and hey presto the programme gave me better colours
I'm rushing now as I need to get to the Amateur Dramatics with the jpeg pics on a memory stick so someone can put them on our web page
There is an 'umbrella' organisation that puts a lot of other Am Dram pictures as well as ours on their web site (he will have to wait)
I should have left about 8-30pm & I've not quite finished so, thank you so much for your reply
I will check this site either on my return or after I've been to the gym tomorrow
What you've said has been very helpful
The 'export' was greyed out
It might have been because the pics were 16 bit
I tried something else tonight a box told me that I needed to convert the pics to 8 bits, which I did
Now it appears I can re-save the tiffs as jpegs
Thanks any way
will catch up later
