Choosing Raw

To shoot in raw mode, venture into your camera’s menus and controls—specifically, to those that let you adjust image quality. In some cameras, you’ll find these options buried in menus. In others, you can change image quality using buttons on the top of the camera. Check your manual.

Make sure. It’s a sad fact of life: each camera company has created its own raw format, and if you have a newly introduced camera, iPhoto may not recognize your camera’s raw format images. Before shooting raw, verify that iPhoto supports your camera’s raw format. You may find that you need to update to a newer Mac OS X version—Apple often adds support for new cameras when it releases a Mac OS update.
