Converting to JPEG

When I take a photo in RAW I end up with two images, one RAW and one JPEG, It's very usefull for this website.

If I open the RAW with Photoshop CS3 how do I then convert that to JPEG? I dont seem to be able to save as or save for web.

I ask because If my camera only saved the RAW and not the JPG I would have to convert it.

I am as new to CS3 and CS2 as I am photography. (Hopefully there is a guide to touching up your images whilst in RAW format on this site somewhere as photoshop opens up a whole host of options I do not know how to use yet )

Re: Converting to JPEG

Is your RAW file in 16 bit?.........if so change to 8 bit and the jpeg option will then be available in 'save as'.

Re: Converting to JPEG

Ahhh, yes it was. How is it some are 8 bit whilst others are not?

Thanks for the help and quick response.

dSLR Cameras usually will record 12bit which is saved at 16bit. JPEG is an 8bit standard whilst RAW/TIFF can be 8 or 16bit (but usually latter)

If your new to photography surely Photoshop Elements would be more suitable, ie less complex than CS3 and will perform must of the functions of CS3, and is only a fraction of the cost. Thereby giving you more money to spend on lenses which are more important.

Re: Converting to JPEG

My advice would be to save the converted file as a 16 bit TIFF. Then make any final editing changes in Photoshop and save. You can then change to 8 bit then Save As JPEG for web. You will still have the TiFF file if you need to perform any further editing.
