Shot in RAW for 1st time now what do I do?
Apr 9, 2012

Sorry if I am repeating this. I think I wrote in the incorrect forum the first time:

Hope someone can help. I used RAW for the first time today. I can't download the images to my computer which I didn't realize until now when I read up on it. I currently don't have a post processing system. Now I have 2 questions:

1) Which post processing system will convert RAW photos? Someone recommended Lightroom but I don't know if this will work and

2) With RAW images, once they are converted do you lose the RAW image? Or, can you convert to JPEG for uploading and keep the RAW version for post processing?

Could someone explain the process? I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Sue
