    Major noob here. Just got a gf3 and when I take pics and download images there is alway 2 pics.

    I'm sure i messed with some setting, but have no idea how to undo.

    Can I do a reset?

    Thanks,

    Bob-

    The reason you're taking two pictures is that the camera is set to record a both a RAW image and a JPEG image. This can be changed. In the record menu you have a setting for quality and the camera will give you four options - fine (JPEG), standard (JPEG), RAW and fine, RAW and standard and RAW alone.

    Most people are happy with JPEG photos only. But RAW images will give you the best image quality as long as you don't mind doing some post processing (with Photoshop or a similar program) since RAW images, which are unprocessed, may seem a bit dull and soft.

    Copy that.

    Any recommendations for books, videos, classes, other readings, etc... to help the noob move up the learning curve?

    Where I live there are photo courses offered by the county as well as by the local community college. If you have something similar they'd be worth checking out.
