You don't need any special program. If you've shot in RAW+F then you have two copies of every photograph on your memory card. One is RAW, the other is JPEG. Any photo cataloging/viewing program can handle JPEG photos.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo transfer program such as Nikon Transfer ( http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 ) or Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).


If you want to deal with the RAW version, you can use Nikon ViewNX2 (see the Nikon Transfer link above).

My computer wont recognize any of the photos taken with the x500... what could be causing this problem


It sounds like you are shooting your photo's in RAW. You need to either change your camera to shoot in JPEG or purchase photo editing software that supports RAW format files. There is a free editing program called Raw Therapee.

I have a Nikon D3100 camera. Recently there is a black band at the top part of my pictures, about 1/4. This happens every other picture. It almost looks like the shutter does not open properly every other...


You apparently are shooting in both jpg and raw modes. I do that. So what you have is actually two pictures. The jpg picture is full screen and the raw (nef) picture has the black lines you describe.

I don't know why it does this other than to allow you to recognize which pictures is raw and which is jpg. It is not a problem and picture quality is not impacted in any way.

Your manual should explain fairly clearly the benefits of both formats. You can use the menu to change it to take only jpg or nef pictures and possibly other formats.

When I edit photos, unless I'm in a hurry, I usually make a copy of the NEF photo and edit that. You can make many more changes in an NEF photo than you can in a jpg photo.

In either case, I would suggest you always edit from a copy to protect the original. I think my D-90 allows the use of other formats in addition to jpg, but nef is the only raw format that Nikon uses.

Setting dpi on my nikon d3100


DPI (dots per inch) is an output specification and is irrelevant to the camera. The camera puts a value into the field simply because it has to put something there. The DPI is set by the printing program when it prints a picture. A picture printed at 4x6 will obviously have more dots per inch than the same picture printed at 8x10.

Hi. Switched to RAW instead of JPEG, now unable to upload photos, is this because of files being RAW format? Is it possible to convert them (these are shots I need!). Thanks, N.


If your camera did not come with the software to convert RAW images, and your computer does not have a photo editing program with a raw converter built-in, there are editing programs you can purchase such as Photoshop Elements (about $99) that can do the job and much more.

Downloading photos from Canon 400D direct to Canons photo editing programmes on new windows Vista computer.


There are two ways to solve this problem. I am assuming you are simply clicking on the pictures and choosing "edit" or double clicking on the pictures and they are opening in "Vista picture editing"
The first way to overcome this is by opening the desired program first (in this case canon's photo editor) and then choose open and find the desired photos.
The other way is to set the file type association in vista so that RAW programs open with the canon program see below for step by step:
1. Click Start
2. Click default programs on the black bar
3. Click Associate a file type or protocol with a program
4. Find the file types you want to open automatically in your canon editing program (RAW .jpg etc)
5. Click once at the top of the page click change program
6. A new window will open, if it does not list the correct program click browse at the bottom of the window and find your editor in it's folder.
7. Select the desired program by double clicking
8. Click OK
9. Click close
10. Test the new file association by double clicking a RAW file or one of the other file types and see if it loads into the correct program.

The final (and this is simply my plug for open source programs) solution would be to try something like GIMP (it is a photo editing suite developed under linux but adapted for windows) you can search for it on google.

If you are having trouble with any of these steps please post a comment and I will try and add some clarification.
Hope this helps
