Ok, I got the Sony A100. It shoots in RAW as well as RAW/JPEG. The RAW files are uploaded as .arw files. Photoshop CS2 can't open them. I downloaded a plug-in but that didn't work. Did I skip a step in there somewhere? I installed the plug-in. Was I supposed to do something else? The camera came with a Image Data Converter program where I can open the .ARW files and save them as jpeg or tiff. The program will allow me to do additional editing in CS2 and convert the .ARW file into tiff to allow me to edit them on cs2. I don't like tiff files. Up to this point, I had been shooting in jpeg only. Now I'm wondering if the RAW/JPEG option would be best. So what the heck do I do now? I got a bunch of flower pictures I had taken while messing around with my new lights and I want to open them, edit them beyond what the sony software will let me, and then share them here. The more I think about it, the more I think I'm going to sign up for that digital color class that is supposed to be offered this summer.
