  1. Thanks for the help, Vic.
  2. My questions/ problems are two fold. First, I have downloaded RAF files with PS6. When I try to open one of the RAF images, I get the message that the image can not be found. The entire download in visible in the catalog. The image appears in the develop area but I get the message that it is not available and it is stuck in the develop view. I can not delete of get rid of it. Also, another view appears at some point that is labeled "People View". I cannot get out of it. So, as I try to navigate around torid of or delete the photo, the "People View" comes up. PS6 is just stuck. Abobe does not support anything, evidently, except CC any more. I am not sure if any of this makes sense. Also, according to "YOU TUBE", I should be able to click on the Window, which brings up options which should contain an option " Reset Desktop". It is not there on my laptop or my desktop. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. A friend told me that Adobe does this so everyone will have to download CC. She had a problem and her whole system locked up. Ready to ditch PS6 but will not use CC.
  3. Are there any other programs I can use to download Fuji RAW images beside Lightroom? I am still unhappy about the options for Fuji Raw. Love the camera and images but have regrets because of the way to download the images. Thanks for any suggestion , advise. Annewin
  4. Nikon Transfer is Nikon's instrument for downloading images , both jpeg and RAW. I'm really sorry but I don't understand your response. I don't what Nikon Transfer is, or what it does - can you elaborate? Nikon Transfer is Nikon's program to download images from camera or card reader, both jpeg and RAW. don't understand what you mean by "For the RAF files I have found that I can download them, and if I make at least one adjustment, I can then open them in PS." Surely the process is to copy the files from your memory card to your PC, then open them in Photoshop? Why do you need to make "at least one adjustment" to open them in PS? And what are you using to make that adjustment? Is the issue your version of PS cannot open the raf files from your camera because it is an older version, or not up to date? If using PS (I don't, so bear with me), I would assume if you open a raf file, you get the Adobe Raw converter dialogue, you adjust the image to taste, then develop it and it gets transferred into the PS editor? I am not a PS expert, I just know that RAF files are not recognized by PS.
  5. I do know how to switch the OIS on the lens. The XC 50-230 does not have this switch on the lens. The lens manual says OIS is available using the IS MODE option in the camera shooting menu. What is the difference of whether the lens has ISO switch or not, if you choose ISO from the camera menu. Are you saying that even if you have OIS on the lens, one still needs to turn it on in the camera also? Just trying to understand. Thanks
  6. I use Nikon transfer for my RAW files and this process is so easy. For the RAF files I have found that I can download them, and if I make at least one adjustment, I can then open them in PS. So I have found a solution but I do not care for LR, maybe mainly because I have never really learned how to use it. I just find that downloading and process RAF files to be complicated. From what I have read on the web, I am not the only person to feel frustrated with RAF files. I am continuing to experiment and research ways of handling these files.
  7. My question is about correct settings for Image Stabilization. I have one lens with IS on the Lens and another with no IS on the lens. Directions says to set IS for this lens in camera. Ok, I understand that but which setting, continuous, or shooting only? Original the camera setting was on continuous and did not result in focused images. I changed to Shooting only and the results was better. All of this could be user error, I just don't know. Also, with the Lens that has IS on it, do I set the camera to IS off? Second question: I just received the XC 50-230MM F4.5-6.7 OIS 11. This is the lens with no IS and I think I will return it and replace with XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.9 R LM OIS lens. I would like to have opinions on the XF55-200 before making another error in ordering. I am still struggling with the Fuji system and still love the Nikon DSL. The transition to the mirrorless system is challenging for me. I very much do appreciate the weight of the mirrorless cameras. Thanks for your thoughts and advise.
  8. I am still learning the Fuji XT20 and I might add that I do not find it an easy transition from Nikon DSL. Thanks for the information about in camera raw converter. That is going on my list of what I have to learn. Thanks, Anne
  9. I have been watching You Tube videos on the XT20. There a several videos on the good quality of the Jpeg images and suggest to use RAF images only as backups. In general, the conclusion is that the jpegs are so good that RAF are really unnecessary and in some cases the qualtity of the jpegs can not be matched with RAF edits. I would like to hear thoughts from experienced XT20 users on this idea. I am still getting used to the X-T20 and am annoyed with the aggravation of how RAF files are handled. I am used to Nikon and really having a difficult time getting used to Fuji. Thanks, Anne

    RAW processing software

    Vic, I am so to hear you say that about not appreciating the LR cataloging. I agree . I use my own system and when I say to others that I don't like LR, they really give me an argument and rave about how great it is.
  11. I looked at the Affinity Photo and It looks very interesting and I like the fact that I can just buy it . Really don't like subscriptions.
  12. I have been watching videos on how to use the Fuji XT20. On one video it was suggested that the ISO should be set at 3200 and then let the camera choose the best ISO for each shot. I never used this method with Nikon and not really sure if I think I want to use it with Fuji. Thoughts on this issue would be appreciated. Thanks, Annewin

    Fujifilm X-T20 & Lightroom

    Lightroom 6 does download and edit my Fuji XT20 RAF files.
  14. Download problems solved. I can open Fuji RAF files with LR 6, adjust them, then send to PSCS5 with LR adjustment as a Tiff. PSCS 5 will then edit them. Any suggestions on where to purchase PSCS 6? Thanks for the help. Anne
  15. Vic, I have LR6 and have gotten LR to open and convert files to DNG. I have spent hours doing research. The X-T20 is supported by Adobe. Windows Tech could not help. I have sent in a request for a phone call from Fuji help but have not heard from them. I want to be able to edit my image in Photoshop. I will look into FastStone viewer if I can't find a solution after talking with Fuji. I really want to use the XT20 but not feeling confident at the moment. Thanks for the suggestion.
