I have a Nikon coolpix 3100 my questions are what do I use to process my snaps Windows, Nikon or Adobe photo 2.I use card reader to download pics and use Win photo editor but they all seem to finish up in different files.

I have been advised through this forum to save my snaps as Tiffs but in the drop down box of save as there is no Tiif only jpeg listed.

By the way the camera is superb.
Thanks Joe

They should all go to a default folder, ie my photos, but every download will be a different file. just make a new folder/folders in my photos and when you have edited the photos drag them in.

That's because your camera only takes them as jpeg so that is what they are. You would need something like Irfanview (download free from click here) or Paint Shop Pro and re-save them as tif.

I have playing around managed to change to Tiffs on my card usingAdobe and then dragged from card to my docs seems to have worked what do you both think?

Looking at your camera spec it is roughly the same as my Nikon Coolpix 2500, which also came with a 16mb CF card. I would suggest you buy a bigger CF card, I now have a 128mb card. You would also find it a lot easier to transfer the pictures from camera to hard disk via a card reader. Check out Ebuyer at click here and scroll down the page a bit. The best way is to transfer all the pictures from the camera to the PC in their original format, then make copies (using irfanview). Now you can clear the camera card ready for the next set.

Joe, Save your original Jpeg at full size, then always work on a copy of the full size Jpeg. This will save any deterioration to the original image. I doubt that you will see much difference if you convert to Tiff.

I have created a number of folders with suitable names IE. "flowers" "Bugs" "Landscapes" which are on my desktop. It is then a simple matter of routing the images to a suitable folder, via the "Save As".

I would recommend that, initially you use only one of your image editing suites, my preference, being a Photoshop user would be Adobe Photo.

If your images are scattered about your H/drive, this freeware program click here locate them for you, It will also allow you to do basic editing.
