You import them the same way as jpegs but you can edit so much more, you'll be thrilled. you'll need to save/export as jpegs for uploading purposes though.

Yup, just shoot RAW. So much easier to tweak with those over JPEGs.

I know this is a photography thread, but have you guys messed around with action sets in photoshop? Any favorites? I like them a lot for different things.

I shoot in JPEG + RAW and I really prefer what I can recover/tweak in RAW vs. JPEG. I just shoot in JPEG for the times when I want to do a quick upload SOOC. Originally I would shoot in both but only edit and upload my JPEG files because the color was so much better, but that I hear is pretty easily recoverable. I know about as much about post processing as I do about photography, so take it with a grain of salt

As far as PS action go, I keep meaning to download a few. They'd save me so much time!! I downloaded a set of black/white actions that I really like but now I can't remember where they're from.

Also, thanks for the words of encouragement on the 52 weeks on Flickr!! I stalk the page (and of course, Amanda and Katielou's threads) regularly and the photos are so incredible. I think this challenge on Chaz will keep me busy, but once I am comfortable with my photography and using my camera, I'd really like to join. So probably next year?

The link to download those didn't work for me

If I do ok with it this year, I am going to do Limit next year. I'd also like to do the cat one but I will for sure miss the first few months since ours aren't coming home until Feb-April.

Ok, switching to RAW

Any other settings anyone would recommend I start off changing? I am reading a TON online but would love tips from those that shoot a lot of pet photography since that is primarily what I do.

I think this is because the settings aren't suiting what I like anymore I don't know how to even begin shooting manual. I did bring my manual for my camera - is this sufficient to start with or is there a book or a certain something I should work on (like a certain lighting situation etc). My photography friends are in MI, I don't have any friends in TN so no one to hands-on show me what to do...
From the moment I opened up my first DSLR (Nikon D40), I didn't allow myself to shoot in auto. I've only ever shot in manual, which has forced me to learn a ton from the very beginning.

I haven't read this whole thread, but when I have some time later I'll post up some things that have really helped me.

That would be wonderful. I read an article that suggested everyone try shooting with P instead of M to start. Many other articles suggesting trying the A or S settings instead. But, I don't know how to do anything at all in manual so I was almost thinking straight M would be best so I would have to learn it all. I just do NOT know what I am doing! LOL

My last P&S had a lot of manual setting options, so I'd been used to using (and preferred) using manual mode before I got a DSLR. The very, very few times I've used an auto setting (if I just needed a quick pic with no time to fiddle) I'm never very pleased with it
