Thank you for getting back to me. I think I need to uninstall my current software since my camera was upgraded so I am sure that I am using the proper software,(just in case) then I will see if I can get things to work. Love the screen shots too. Thanks for all your time.. Connie

Thanks for this info. Do you know if this plugin will work in PSP 8 or 9? I haven't bitten the bullet for the Photoshop yet. Connie

SinRastro - you're right that the bundled software doesn't give much flexibility, I was only mentioning it to get ConnieD out of a spot. I must say I find it pretty frustrating also.

I don't have Photoshop CS either (still saving). I'd heard that the Camera Raw plugin doesn't support the S5100 / 5500 - does the new update solve this?

Just a curious question. I know, I need to try it for myself. I just received my 5100 yesterday. Took a few pictures of my brand new granddaughter on the 16 MB card that came with it, and was quite impressed. I haven't opened my bigger cards yet. But can you see a big difference in the RAW photos that you take? I have Photoshop CS, and have downloaded the plug-in, but haven't had time to use it yet. I would like to hear some feedback from some of you experienced users.

Well, I (sort of) answered my own question. I took a few raw images last night. Then I opened them with the Photoshop CS raw converter plug-in. It was immediately evident that you have much finer control over your images. None of the pictures I took were noteworthy enough to share, but I can definitely see an advantage for shooting raw format. My only problem is that I only have a couple of 128 MB cards right now. So I'm going to have to be very selective about what I choose to shoot in raw format. We are going to Alaska later this month, so I don't think I had better push my luck and purchase any more new camera gear. Fortunately, my son-in-law is going to take his laptop so we can download our images. But it sure would be nice to have a 512 MB card.

Theres a little BIG difference between a JPEG file and a RAW file...

Lets call it "COMPRESSION". Actually what you get from a RAW file is what de CCD capture, the cam does nothing with the image... so you lost no data at all.

So the difference is really noticeable.
