I can't believe how long I have been into photography and I have just stepped into the field of RAW. Woops.
But I am having issues, as I'm technology-impaired. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
Not sure if this will make any difference, but a little technical info beforehand: I shoot with a d700 and use adobe bridge and photoshop cs3. I also have Nikon's ViewNX, which came with the camera... but I rarely touch this program.
Anyway, I did a small shoot yesterday and had everything recorded in RAW + JPG
1. I have downloaded the images and am having technical problems all around. To begin with, the RAW images look much more saturated and sharp compared to the JPG when I view them in bridge or photoshop. Why is this? How do I change it and get them to look normal/the same? When I view them in View NX, they look exactly the same, but the program doesn't let me open them in photoshop.
2. Why are the RAWs being recorded in a different color profile? All of my other work is recorded in sRGB, but the RAW was recorded in Adobe RGB. I don't get the differences here. Is there a way to change the color profile for raw on my camera?
3. Why are my RAW dimensions larger, but taken at 240ppi (vs 300ppi in JPG)?
I'm sure I will have more questions, but this is it for now. Thanks in advance for the help!
And thank you so much for the continued support!
Summer is almost here and I'm full of ideas. New pictures will be coming soon.
