Hello everybody!My name is Tony and I just got my Canon Rebel with a 50mm lens a couple of weeks ago.I have always liked going out and shooting with my old Sony Cybershot which took good pictures but I found myself growing out of it.

I would just like to say that I am really looking forward to learning the most I can about photography. I am also looking forward to getting the most out of my Canon Rebel XT. I know it isn't the best DSLR but I know that if used correctly you can get some amazing pictures.

Anyways...

I shoot in RAW format. Once i finish importing the pictures into my laptop I view them and they are small. When I upload them through Photobucket they also come out small.

Can someone tell me why? How can I fix this problem?

What image hosting site do you guys suggest I use?

Do you guys know of any good RAW converters that are free and that can be downloaded?

-THANKS

Hi t23r, welcome to the Cameralabs forums!

What RAW converter are you currently using? Here's a thread about some others: http://www.cameralabs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1979

As for hosting, most folk here use flickr

Right click one of your small photos, check the properties and tell us how many pixels are in it - eg 600x400 pixels...

Crikey that is small... maybe you've accidentally set the RAW software to output at a low resolution. Look for the resolution settings in your RAW software - check the help files...

Do I look for that in my camera or when i have them in my laptop.

I think I should look for that in the camera since the pictures are already coming out small when i import them into my laptop.

Okay.

Now when I view the pictures with my RAW converter that came with the camera the pictures are normal size.

I then upload them into FLICKR and the pictures come out small.

What gives?

I was also trying other formats.

I was shooting in RAW+L

How does the quality of a picture taken in RAW+L compare to a picture that is just taken in RAW?

Yes, I meant check the resolution in your computer software.

RAW+L means the camera records a RAW file and a JPEG of the same image, the latter in 'Large' quality. The RAW file will be identical to one if you were just in RAW mode. This is all in your camera manual though, so I'd advise having a browse...

If you're using the Flickr uploader you might need to select the display res before uploading.
