i remember reading somewhere about the greater flexibility of RAW/TIFF images when it came to post-processing. so i took my girlfriend's 15th birthday pictures(the ones with the white dress) all in TIFF mode. took 28, there's 10 of them I really like and want to edit and I can't find how to in the programs that came with the FZ20:?

and to clarify I was just taking pictures for myself, the photoshoot was done by her uncle using a medium format camera. he just didnt mind me taking pictures, so i let him get her to pose and look nice and i just snapped the pictures:idea:

Picaso2 is really neat if explored. free btw

PhotoFiltre does well with tiff. Also, free.

The Arcsoft software that came with your camera can do basic enhancements to tif files. Unless you want something more advanced.

Also, you do not have to take the photo's in tif format. I did a test where I took the same pic in tif and then in jpeg. I then zoomed in on random details of each, and there is vertually no difference. The difference is each time you edit the jpeg, it deteriorates.

You could take the shots in jpeg, and convert them to tif on the computer for editing. Then convert them back to jpeg when finished.

Just a suggestion.

thanks for the suggestions guys. picasa was just whati needed

and bobc thanks for the suggestion, but i dont mind taking pics in TIFF mode, it takes about 1 sec to save to memory card, and its a good excuse to buy myself one of those 1GB kingmax

Very true bobc,

I convert my jpeg to tiff with PhotoFiltre and then just do my post-processing that way. Since it is lossless it makes for easier tweaking and not degrade the quality of the shot as much as it would in jpeg. I also do my printing in the tiff format.

Nice to see you back dude.

Tom
