Raw Editing In Elements 5..

Hi All,

Just took a few pics in Raw my first one's with the D50, uploaded them to Elements 5 for editing the Nef files. Firstly I was surprised to see how good the images looked straight from the camera without any editing though I must admit as to not knowing how raw files would look unedited

What I would like to know is once I have done the editing how do I save the file? to what format is it photoshop Raw or what?

Or do I do nothing with the original and make a copy do the editing on that and save that as a JPEG.

John

Re: Raw Editing In Elements 5..

You can't save a RAW file, John, so I'd recommend saving as either a TIF or a PSD - I always use TIF. This allows editing without introducing artefacts (as can happen with JPGs). Of course after editing, if you want to display on the web, you need to convert to JPG

Hi Mark,

If I save to tiff that doesn't compress or degrade the raw file does it?

and do I then make a copy of the Tiff file and convert to J PEG for uploading to web ETC.

Also remember that when you change things in RAW, you only save the settings in a seperate file. The actual RAW image is never changed so you can always go back to the original image info and try different things.

Re: Raw Editing In Elements 5..

Hi,

Do you do any editing on the original raw file ( wb etc ) or do you do your editing on the saved tif file?

John

Re: Raw Editing In Elements 5..

Effectively you open the RAW file and then save as a TIF.

I use my proprietary conversion software which allows me to alter WB and other factors (saturation, exposure, shadow, etc), save as TIF and then use PS to tweak with minor adjustments (mainly dodge and burn, if applicable)
