Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18K Digital Camera

1 Answer

I took some photos in RAW and cannot open them from the computer.

I downloaded a program from the CD that came with the FZ18, Silky Pix and I was able to open the files, not directly from the card, but through this program, but not convert them to JPEG. Is there any easy way to do this? If I plug the camera or card into the computer the files still say RAW and are not able to be opened, but if I go into the Silky Pis download I can see them there. Thanks for the help.

I took some pictures with my Nikon D60 camera in raw format now i am unable to copy them to my hard disc


You need a software program installed on your computer to work with and convert raw pictures. An example would be Photoshop Elements. Usually, cameras that can shoot raw photos come with software on a cd to work with the photos.

We took pictures on our Fujifilm finepix S100 in raw format. We now cannot download these pictures to our mac computer. Help please. Our camera is a finepix s100fs


Raw files of any type can be a problem if you don't have a program to open them but, they should download to the computer the same as a jpg file format. Are you attempting to download from the camera to the computer or do you have a card reader plugged into a USB port? Image software such as Photoshop has the ability to open and work with RAW files also with the S100fs when it was bought is a "FinePixViewer" and a program to be able to edit the files. I can't use the Fuji RAW editor because it clashed with another program and I had to remove it. I use PhotoShop CS3 for my RAW files from the Fuji S100fs. Aside from all this it shouldn't stop you from creating a file folder for your image in "Documents" and placing those images in there for future use or editing. If you can download jpg then RAW should be no different.

I can't download photos from my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18


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 cataloging program.

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
