OK being fairly new to digital and computers ,i take a shot with my 5d in raw .Then use a raw program to covert to a tiff.
This is where the probs start ,when i allocate a folder to save the tiff from raw.
Upon opening the folder the tiff file size has increased in size from 12mb to a whopping 70+mb for each file .
what is going on and how do i correct it .
many thanks

Nothing is going on and it certainly doesn't need correcting, that's about the right size for a 16bit tiff from a 5D. Smile

First of all, did you convert it to 8 bits or 16 bits TIFF file?
