When I import from my camera LR converts to a DNG file. I am sure it used to also save a CR2 file as well. Now it appears to be only saving as a DNG. The reason I need the CR2 files is my images suddenly have a lot of noise in them. Canon wants CR2 files but also thinks I have a setting messed up in LR. Can anyone help me? I desperately want to speak to a person!! GAH!!! TIA!
When you import, at the top of the import dialog is a choice Copy as DNG, Copy, Move, Add. You must have selected Copy as DNG in the past. You need to use Copy if you want to keep your CR2 files.
BTW, whether CR2 or DNG, the noise is still there and still mitigated by the same tools. You will not gain anything in Lightroom by working on the CR2 instead of a DNG version of it.
Thank you Rikk! I am going to check that out. As far as my noise issue. Really the DNG/CR2 is separate from my noise issue. Is there possibly some setting in LR that would over sharpen or do something to my images to cause them to be noisy?
