I took some pictures in raw for the first time a week ago i noticed that they come with a jpeg as well ? if i manipulate the raw image does the jpeg change aswell? also i tried to upload a raw image to the monday night challenge but it wouldnt go . Is the raw image only for manipulation and the attached jpeg for viewing etc

The JPEG doesn't change if you manipulate the raw image. As for uploading a RAW file, that won't work either. RAW files are the unedited file which should always be editing in a raw editing software such as Photoshop, Lightroom or the Manufacturers software. Jpeg are a compressed file which has been edited and sharpened by the camera.
I personally shoot in both, jpeg for viewing and RAW for editing.
No, the JPEG is a different file altogether. The JPEG is an image in which the camera has already done the 'post processing' (though you can do more on it if you wish to).
When uploading for the Monday challenge you need to upload the JPEG.
Cheers boys so if i edit the raw file in my nikon software and i save will it save as a jpeg ? please say yes lol
save as jpg.
Hi, yes if you edit your raw file, you can then save your file as a JPEG, then upload it to EPZ. JPEG files are much smaller than RAW files, but you are doing the right thing by shooting in RAW.
ta for all the advice
Quote: will it save as a jpeg ?
It will if you tell it to. I save it as a tiff file which I then tweak in Photoshop and then save as a jpg. Don't forget that you have to resize it to upload it.
???? mmm i didn't tell it to i only have the basic nikon software at the moment wonder if it does it automatically. Whats a tiff then enlighten me
You can't edit a Raw file as such. You can only "apply" adjustments to it and then save/export the result as another format, e.g. Jpeg, Tiff or whathaveyou.
In Nikon ViewNX2 (which I presume you are using), when you click on File\Convert File, the top field in the dialogue box is File Format. The default is Jpeg but, if you look, you will also see options for Tiff (16 bit) and Tiff (8 bit)
For web upload, choose Jpeg, change the size to (say) 800 pixels on the long edge and select the folder you want to save it to. Then click Convert
Your Raw file will remain unchanged but the Jpeg you have created will reflect the "editing" you did.
Thanks alot thats a great help
You can usually turn off jpeg+raw if you want and just shoot one or the other.
aye that was what was congusing me lemmy (Kilmister ??) it was set on raw +jpeg went out tonite after setting it solely on raw much easier to manipulate then change to jpeg thanks again
With some trepidation, I think I am about to ask quite a stupid question. I know a little about photography and editing software (just enough to get myself into trouble). I took a photograph of two people in RAW/JPEG with my D90 and put the RAW image up on my PC's screen, only to find one person was slightly out of focus. I suspect I have auto-focused upon one subject, to the detriment of the other. I have tried various bits of software (Nikon Capture, Photoshop, Lightroom, Irfanview) and cannot find any way of sharpening-up the blurred image. I can alter absolutely everything else but not the focus. Other than deleting the image and putting it down to experience, is there any way of correcting this basic mistake? Thanks for any replies.
