I'm just trying to get started with working with RAW files.
I've always used JPEG mode but I would like to try RAW.
I'm using Elements 7 and I just updated my Camera Raw plugin to version
When I open up a RAW file and do my editing how do I save it to a JPEG?
It seems my Camera Raw will only let me save into a .DNG file.
There is a little pulldown menu but there is no JPEG, TIFF etc listed only DNG.
Do I have to have a RAW converter program or something to take me from RAW to JPEG?

Thanks for the help

In the raw window, instead of hitting save, hit open. That then takes the output from the raw and lets you edit it like normal. From there you can save in jpeg. Note, if you transfer from raw in 16-bit, some options are unavailable until you take it down to 8-bit.
