What does raw+fine pictures mean?


The raw+fine setting indicates that your camera will take both raw (NEF) and high resolution JPEG pictures with every shot. You can change this to shoot just JPEG or just raw shots using your menu under the little camera icon. Click on image quality and it will give you multiple settings so you can choose only raw or only JPEG. You have three JPEG settings: fine, normal or basic.


I always shoot raw+fine which I think may be the default setting. I use the jpeg pictures for simple and quick editing and I use raw for detailed editing. JPEG pictures deteriorate quickly during editing while raw pictures can handle extensive editing without significant deterioration.

When you shoot raw+fine, it means the camera is actually storing two pictures of the same shot, one in each of the two formats. When you view the pictures in Windows, you can tell the difference between the raw shots and the jpeg shots because the raw shots have a broad black bar across the top and bottom of the picture while the jpeg shots fill the screen.

We have a Canon EOS 500D. After using it for 18 months we suddenly have a Raw notice and cannot print photos. We dont know where this has come from or to get rid of it. Advise please.


Sounds to me as if someone has set the image "Quality" to RAW files which are more for a professional or advanced amateur use. Page 70 of your owners manual will show you how to set this "Quality" to jpg. I'm going to include a screen shot of this page because it has diagrams and instructions far better then what I can explain just in type.

Also the RAW files you have must me downloaded to your computer, opened in your image software program and converted to jpg file format before you can print, e-mail or any other "normal" thing people do with jpg format.

RAW is just that the actual raw file of the image captured where as the jpg file format is the compressed version with corrections already made in camera. RAW files need correction in post processing.

I suspect you are using the Rebel's direct printing feature which can not process RAW file format, I don't think you want to print RAW as there has been not corrections.

I know this will help.

Here is the diagrams.

When I upload photos onto my computer from my memory card, there are always two copies of each photo. One copy seems true to life and the other is slightly saturated and grainy. It's frustrating that I...


Those two image files have got to have different prefix letters maybe the same file number but the files are way different as one is shot in a jpg format and the other in a RAW format. Your camera is much more powerful that you think and the features exceed most all point and shoot. What you need to do is change the Recorded Pixels this is on page 80 of the manual I'm going to suggest "L" Large for the best printable quality in a jpg picture.

Note to change the setting you have which is including both RAW and jpg you need to turn off the RAW recording. It's a bit confusing but I'm trying to show your the screen shots with these sequences and that's proving difficult in it's own because it's over multiple pages.
Here is what I've got to show you

The short answer is you need to shut off the RAW recording of an image.

Having gone over a year without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to get a newer version of ACR solved the problem.

Where can I find a download for D60 raw files? I have taken photographs using the RAW format and now wish to use the raw controls to edit them. How do I find the appropriate download


Nikon have their own free viewer which allows you to convert the files to jpg etc.

If you want a program that can edit D60 Raw files then you could try AbelRawer.

Photoscape has general converter (to Tiff / jpg etc) as well as an editor but I am unsure if it can edit raw files.

All the programs above are freeware.

Adobe photoshop has all the necessary editing power, but is expensive.

Hope that is of help to you.

Lack of mb in photos


If you have your camera set to take the highest resolution pictures(8 MegaPixel), but save in jpg format, then 3 - 4 MB is a normal size for the image file. There is nothing wrong with your camera.

If you have your camera set to save in RAW format, the image files will not be compressed and MUCH bigger. However you will need software that will be able to manipulate images in RAW format.

Raw setting


You do need RAW compatable software to read these files.
However this should not prevent you simply saving them to a file.
When you say regular Wizard - is this the Windows scanner/Camera Wizard or the one on the Camera CD
If the latter delete that software and use the Windows version.
If you are using the camera to up load images - not a a good idea think of the battery drain - a Card reader is better.
Reading Raw images?
Do a web search for free software
IrfanView Might as indeed Picasa - two to look at
