When I first got my FZ50 I played around with RAW a little and didnt really find any advantages. And I didnt save any of the shots I took.

Now I want to give RAW another try. So afterimdone doingmy PPwork in Silkypix I want to save that RAW shot in MY PICTURES and then make a JPG from the finished RAW shot. I cannot figure out how to doeither. Any help with these questions would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Steve

Well its been a long time since I tried Silky pix, but in most any editor there is a choice of what file format and where you wish to save ......once you click "Save as".

In your case it seems you would want to save as RAw to My Pictures, and then click save as again and choose to save the file to the same location as a JPEG.

If the Jpeg is your problem you need to change the file from 16 bit to 8 bit before you can do that. In most editors that option would be under image > mode >8 bit.

As I said I do not use Silkypix so I may be pretty far off base but thats how it would work in PS.

Thanks I will try that. Everytime I tried saving the picture to MY PICTURES I could not get the photo to show.

Do you mean the RAW file was there you just could not see the image?

I think there should be a preference in silkypix to be your RAW thumbnail viewer....but I do not use silkypix so I may again be wrong.

My cameras are older and windows thumbnail viewer works for me but I do not think it works on the FZ50 but you can check.

If not take a look at Faststone
