Hi guys, i am new to photography and bought myself a Nikon Coolpix P7000 (yea it is only a point-and-shoot but very fun to play with). I have been reading up on certain photography articles and found that it is a good 'practice' to take shots in Raw format. Reason being, they can be post edited easier ie. Changing the white balance of the picture.
So i went to take some pictures in Raw (NRW) format and when i happily brought them home and uploaded them into my Aperture3 program. They can not be open!??!! All my pictures turned black with a sentence in silver stating: "Unsupported Image Format". Do users of Photoshop CS5 experience this as well? Is it possible to convert my pictures into JPEG and load it back up on Aperture3?
Actually the first few shots that i took with my camera were in JPEG format and they are able to be post edited fine. White balances and all the other special 'effects' that Aperture3 has could be used on my JPEG format photos. So why do they say that JPEG format photos can not be post edited and only Raw images can?
