Thread: Shooting RAW n Processing

    Default Shooting RAW n Processing

    Hi guys...have a dilemma here. Yesterday I was told to cover for my friend to shoot a wedding. I brought my D70 and after reading a fewposts in here, decided to shoot in RAW.

    The problem I have now is to process the pictures. I read that KT does a good job at developing the digital images. Do I just send the RAW files to them, or must I convert it to jpeg.

    Furthermore, I would like to edit some of the pictures. If so, how do I convert the RAW files if I dont have a Nikon Capture and Photoshop CS.

    If KT can crop the pictures and process them..even better. Less job for me. Please help.

    Download PhaseOne's Capture One Pro (demo version can be used for 30 days, no other restrictions) to convert your RAW to Jpeg.

    I think Michelle at KT will scream at you if you send in RAW. Heehee. Most labs accept TIFF/JPEGs only. As RAWs are proprietary formats, not all labs have PS CS installed to open them.

    You can process the images to JPEG before sending it in. Take pride in your work dude, process them individually...

    Thanks espn. Wouldn't want michelle to scream at me...definitely. But I am really not that good in image processing. After converting it to jpeg, can the people at KT process it for me as they have more experience. maybe i can process some of my personal shots another time. can i have ur feedback?

    They can process your brightness, color correct for you, but they can't touch up to wonders
