RAW Conversion Using Photoshop Question

Wed Jan 14, 2004 8:01 am

A window pops up and it has some values for me to implement. It says:

"RAW Options"

Describe CRW_003.RAW

"Dimensions"
Width_______ Pixels


Height______ Pixels


"Channels"
Count _________

Depth 8 Bits 16 Bits

"Header"
Size: _______ Bytes



What do I put in there? I figure the Width/Height is pretty self explanatory, but I have questions about the rest. Thanks.

Chad

I guess it isnt self explanatory. No matter what number values I put in there, it says "SPECIFIC IMAGE IS LARGER THAN FILE" or "SPECIFIC IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN FILE, OPEN ANYWAY"?

Any help would be appreciated.

I had that same problem. Solution for me is to open my RAW files via the File Browser. That way you get thumbnails and just doubleclick to convert them.

I assume you are talking about CS?

Wietse,

The photos dont show up in File viewer. Only my JPEG's do.

Hmm - sounds like there's a bit missing. Photoshop CS should handle Canon RAWs in both file viewer and direct opening.

Is your CS a new install or an upgrade? Have you done the online activation?

Cheers,

Colin,

When using the File => Open command and I pick one of my RAW files, CS asks for dimensions and all kind of weird stuff... When picking them from the file viewer there is not a problem.

I have a legit copy of PS 7.0.

I think I see where my mistake was... I changed the photo file extension from .CRW to .RAW. Im going shooting tomorrow, Ill try it again. In the CANON PHOTO VIEWER can I change the image to TIFF or do I have to change it to TIFF thru Photoshop? Thanks guys.

Sorry but as far as I can remember, PS7 has no Canon RAW support. You have to convert it in another program and then edit in PS.

Yup, there's your problem. PS 7 does not support RAW without the optional plugin program which I believe is now withdrawn with the advent of the Photoshop CS.

Wietse - that's odd. Whichever way I open a RAW file I go straight into the RAW conversion window - no questions or prompts. I can't remember now if I configured anything to make it work like this.

Cheers,

Which camera? The old plugin doesn't support the 300D ... nor I suspect the 10D, as I'm pretty sure I looked into it and ignored it for that reason.

Do you mean the arrows on the numeric pad? You don't have "num Lock" on do you?

(I know that sounds obvious, but I've worked on a help desk ... normally we ask things like "is it plugged in?" - you'd be surprised!  Smile )
