I use Photoshop CS4. I use it a lot, but I don't have any experience with RAW files.
I need a 600dpi image that is about 11 inches high (to be printed on a huge banner). I shot the photo in RAW format on my Nikon D50. I've tried using both Photoshop and Adobe Bridge to open and convert the file. That seems to go just fine, but when I go to change the image size, I end up with a 600 dpi file that is only 3x5 inches. This is the same result I get when I import a jpeg.
I need to maintain a high resolution so that I can import this file into Illustrator. Any help is greatly appreciated!
