    I'm new to the whole digital thing so excuse the dumb questions,but how do you download a raw file? I have a Pentax k5 and want to try shooting raw but don't know how to download a raw file.I use PS 3 and usually shoot JPEG.Do I need new software to print raw files.Where do I start ????? Thanks

    Any RAW file will be created in your K5 at the time you take the photo. Assuming you had previously set the K5 to the RAW file type. Hopefully PS3 will be able to take that RAW file in. If you are using your own printer, you may be able to print directly from the RAW file in PS3 (different editors do this differently). If you are sending your image out to a service for printing, then you will need to convert the RAW file in PS3 to JPG first. That conversion should be easy in PS3.
