JPG format flattens the images and discards layer info and other attributes. PNG is flattened also but contains options to save transparency. PSD keeps all information about your work with the image including layers, paths, actions, etc. PSD is basically the best file format to save your work that you described here. Please post a comment if you have another question.

    Oh i see. I oversee it as PNG
    Anyway, DNG represents digital negatives, or mainly the file result of the actual image captured by the camera sensor. It could be unprocessed or partially processed.

    Camera "raw formats" in DNG offer both advantages and disadvantages. One advantage is increased artistic control for the end user. The user can precisely adjust a range of parameters, including white balance, tone mapping, noise reduction, sharpening and others, to achieve a desired look.

    One disadvantage is that unlike JPEG and TIFF files which are ready for immediate use, camera raw files must be processed before they can be used, typically through software provided by the camera manufacturer or through a converter like the Camera Raw plug-in for Adobe Photoshop® software.

    I would suggest you use DNG in your case since Photoshop can process it for your use. The only thing is, it is only Photoshop that can recognize it. Just export your work to JPEG or TIFF when you will be using them.

    And one thing, since you processed your images with Camera Raw plugin in photoshop, I would recommend you to save it in DNG in order to save all your enhanceable parameters (workspace)

How to Create a Batch File?


Use "notepad" to type in the commands you want in the batch. Save the file with the extension, "cmd" as in, "batch.cmd". You have a batch file now. It's just commands in a file.

How do i save raw pictures from my camera to a disk. When I transfer them to my computer I can only open them with my cameras software. I don't know how to get them into another program so I can burn them....


You can't burn raw pictures. They are only data from a camera....not an actual picture. They must be processed in an editing program and then converted to another format such as jpeg or tiff.

I cannot get RAW file from my 1000D. It only save jpeg.


You need to have software on your computer to process the raw files. Your camera probably came with a software CD or you may have a program on your computer such as Photoshop Elements that can process the raw files.

A list and defintion of the file types raw b, raw, fine, norm and basic


The D3000 can store still images in two different formats. JPEG is a standard format, recognized by just about every image viewer and image manipulation program in the world. RAW is actually NEF (Nikon Electronic Format), a Nikon-proprietary format which incorporates almost all of the data captured by the sensor, without the processing of JPEG. JPEG files have the color balance, sharpening, contrast, and all the other camera settings done on the picture. With RAW files, you can change any or all of them and produce new JPEGs. In this respect the RAW file is similar to the original negative you get from processed film, while the JPEG file is like the final print. RAW files need special software for viewing and editing.

All JPEG files are compressed to save space. FINE, NORM, and BASIC represent different levels of compression. FINE does the least compression and takes up the most space, BASIC does the most compression and takes up the least space. Compression always loses some quality, so in general the less the compression the better the quality.

RAW+B simply stores each of your pictures as a RAW file and a BASIC JPEG file.

Having said all that, you should use only RAW or FINE settings. You didn't buy a SLR only to throw away picture quality, did you?

I have been given a Coolpix P6000 which I am still experimenting with. My latest pictures contain some images which have an NRW extension instead of JPEG and these pictures cannot be printed. How can I...


NRAW is a RAW image file taken directly from the the sensor & is not processed by the camera. RAW files can be edited in photo editing software. If you want camera to record JPEG files change your [IMAGE QUALITY] setting to [FINE], {NORMAL] or [BASIC].
or to record image in both formats as RAW & JPEG use [NRAW+FINE] etc.
Hope this helps you ;)

PhotoShop CS3 Droplet automation


Try the following steps
  1. Choose File => Automate => Create Droplet.
  2. Specify where to save the droplet. Click Choose in the Save Droplet In section of the dialog box and navigate to the location.
  3. Select the Action Set, and then designate which action you intend to use within the Set and Action menus. (Select the action in the Actions palette before you open the dialog box to preselect these menus.
  4. Set Play options for the droplet:
    a. Override Action “Open” Commands Open commands in the action refer to the batched files, rather than to the file names specified in the action. Deselect Override Action “Open” Commands if the action was recorded to operate on open files or if the action contains Open commands for specific files that are required by the action.
    b. Include All Subfolders Processes files in subdirectories.
    c. Suppress Color Profile Warnings Turns off display of color profile messages.
    d. Suppress File Open Options Dialogs Hides File Open Options dialog boxes. This is useful when batching actions on camera raw image files. The default or previously specified settings will be used.
  5. Choose a destination for the processed files from the Destination menu:
    a. None Leaves the files open without saving changes (unless the action includes a Save command).
    b. Save And Close Saves the files in their current location, overwriting the original files.
    c. Folder Saves the processed files to another location. Click Choose to specify the destination folder.

    Note: You can record an action that saves using a specified file name and folder. If you do this and deselect Override Action “Save As” Commands, the same file is overwritten each time. If you record your Save As step in the action without specifying a file name, the droplet saves it to the same folder each time but uses the file name of the document being saved.

  6. If the action includes a Save As command, choose Override Action “Save As” Commands to make sure files are saved to the folder you specified (or to their original folder if you chose Save And Close.) To use this option, the action must contain a Save As command, whether or not it specifies a save location or file name; otherwise, no files are saved.

    Some save options are not available in the Batch command (such as JPEG compression or TIFF options). To use these options, record them in the action, then use the Override Action “Save As” Commands option to make sure that your files are saved where you specify in the Batch command.

  7. If you chose Folder as the destination, specify a file-naming convention and select file compatibility options for the processed files:
    a. For File Naming, select elements from the pop‑up menus or enter text into the fields to be combined into the default names for all files. Elements include document name, serial number or letter, file creation date, and file extension. Starting Serial Number specifies the starting number for any serial number fields. Serial letter fields always start with the letter “A” for the first file.
    b. For Compatibility, choose Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX to make file names compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX operating systems.
  8. Select an option for error processing from the Errors pop‑up menu:
    a. Stop For Errors Suspends the process until you confirm the error message.
    b. Log Errors To File Records each error in a file without stopping the process. If errors are logged to a file, a message appears after processing. To review the error file, open it in a text editor after the Batch command runs.
Give it a try.........

I have a series of .NEF RAW files photos from Nikon D50 digital camera. Need to take them into PhotoShop CS3 Camera RAW. I have one that has a grey card for balance and will use for color...


Droplets are simply actions contained within an icon in which you drag your images.

All those things are more appropriate for scripts. Actions can be a part of the script. You can learn about how to create them at PhotoshopSupport.com here. It takes some skill. But it can work out very nicely for you.

However, I recommend you consider Adobe Lightroom (LR) for your Raw files to help you go through and do quick edits. LR will export as any format, resolution and bit depth. Then you can fine tune them in Photoshop. LR can also exports DNG for you as well.

Camera RAW and PhotoShop CS3


To start, before building an action or a droplet to convert from Raw, you need at least either the RAW plugin, or the photoshop lightroom plugin, depending on the version of Photoshop. I assume you have the plugin installed on your Photoshop. See: Adobe - Adobe Photoshop CS4: Digital camera raw file support.

A better choice would be having the Nikon Capture NX , that give you the option to work on the native RAW format from Nikon.

Once you have installed a plugin to manage RAW format files you can record an action or droplet to automate the process. If youj want more automation, you set an action first, as a batch process to do action on a single file, then build a droplet on the action batch file. A droplet will give more automation, since droplets can be activated by dropping a folder of images onto that specific Droplet Process, and they will apply the batch process to all the files contained in the folder.

The way you build the batch action depends much on the version of Photoshop you are using and on the plugin used. Here an example using Adobe PS CS2 and camera Raw plugin: Raw Format Workflow with Adobe Bridge .

The action can be saved using the recorder, so that the procedure will de quite instinctive. See the tutorials below for step-by-step instructions.

RAW quality mode option


In the RAW mode, the image is compiled of raw data with no compression and no enhancing settings from the camera such as sharpness, contrast etc. It provides a higher dynamic range with the maximum image quality without being processed, so the user can apply his/her own changes to the file. The file will have a .ORF (Olympus Raw File) extension. It can be read using a supplied PhotoShop Plug-in or the Olympus Camedia 2.5 program.
