    When im converting from RAW to jpeg it gives me an option to size my pics. Width , height in cm and inch. I just type in different sizes but can never get the sizes i want. really small or very big. the size im looking for is roughly the size of the pics that are uploaded on this forum and for flickr. [​IMG] cheers for any help. what sizes do you guys use?

    800px on the longest size works well, both here and on flickr.

    A very easy way to resize your jpegs is BD sizer free to download, and easy to find on the web http://www.idimager.com/?page=freeware :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    When converting from RAW to JPEG don't change the size - keep it the same. Once you have the JPEG saved at full size then change it (and save under different names or folders) for the different sizes you need - might eat up a bit of memory, but I always like to keep the RAW and a fullsized JPEG of a shot just in case I need a new size later on (or the fullsize)
