I am completely new at this and shot about 400 photos in RAW for my nieces birthday party and I just found out RAW images wont upload?
Any way I can go around this? If I take it to a photo place with my SD or cable will they be able to print?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
"They do not transfer onto my laptop when I attach the usb cord."
In reverse order. Do you have a laptop or a tablet? Or, both? I doubt the tablet will work at all so forget it.
"how would i convert them?"
If you have a real laptop you need to d/l the free DPP4 from Canon. It is virtually seamless to u/l to a computer or laptop with it. With DPP4 you will be able to do whatever you want with the raw files.
So, once again so you truly understand, you need a real deal laptop or computer and DPP4. This is not splitting atoms here it is really that simple. You may find someone that knows more about Acer tablets than I but I don't think its use is possible for raw files.
I think I've run DPP4 on a Surface Pro 3.
A RAW file is a digital negative. You cannot upload that file type to social media, nor can you print directly from it. Just like in film, the negative must be first converted into a form viewable to humans, which can mean a JPEG file type.
There are advantages and disadvantages to using either file type. It sounds like you have discovered one of the few disadvantages to using the RAW file type: you cannot share the files until you convert them.
You can print directly from a RAW file with DPP.
