Do those image stations inside of grocery stores read RAW images from SD cards, or can it only read converted JPEG images?

I thought the idea behind RAW mode was soyou could make all the necessary modifications to the image parameters yourself and take nothing from the camera except the RAW data. To print directly from the RAW image would be dreadful since nothing would be white balance, no colour space, nothing.

It is best to make your adjustments and then save the image back to the card as a JPEG that can be printed from one of the kiosks.

Another thing to consider is the many different "RAW" formats. For one of those do-it-yourself printing stations to support all the different formats, it would be too complicated for the average consumer to use. Also, the only editing that is available is cropping and enlarging. So I would think that jpeg is the only format supported.
