How do you do it fella's as ive just converted to using RAW files instead of JPEG and i cant seem to be able to host them in their current format....

Do i have to convert them or something ?

Cheers Graham.

Yes mate, you'll need to convert them to jpegs for uploading so they can be hosted on a site like flickr

Most sites wont be able to display raws, or more probably won`t even accept them as a format. Not only that the file sizes are typically 3 maybe 4 times bigger than a jpeg and a raw file is "unprocessed" so your nice clean shiny manageable jpeg you got from the raw is what you need to upload.
