Found 11th Oct 2010
My holiday pics from italy were all taken in raw format ( or arw as they are showjn on the pc) from my sony slr - ive tried to convert them into jpeg with very poor results with quality being very poor

So my query is are there any photo print companies that print direct from raw format?

yep. OP basically you have shot your pics in format that needs converting using a proper post process app. sounds like youve just tried to simply convert to jpg. this wont work properly as the data isnt read properly from the RAW file.

dont panic. unless you really have ckd up!! remember to RTFM next time.....!!

I clicked jpeg and raw on the camera settings when i bought it but when i got back it was set on raw and all the 800 phots are raw - which is fine for on the computer but not for fbook or printing etc

Looks like you need a plugin to open RAWs with PS 7.0

Note to self : Always take the photo in jpeg ( although lower quality)

Download GIMP - and get UFRaw plug-in - allows you to convert the ARW files into whatever format you want - and gives option of keeping the RAW files - you can also save photos in ARW and JPG when you take them
