Raw downloads from Model Mayhem end in .txt

Hi, this might sound like a silly question. But bear in mind I have no knowledge of photography.

I have been trying to download the raw files offered to people on model mayhem. 80% of them I cannot open as they are text files e.g CR2.txt
Nef.txt

I have no idea what to do, or how to open/convert them. Any advice would be most appreciated. I am using a macbook with photoshop cs3

Try renaming the files eg. img 23.cr2

basically have the file name end in .cr2 or .nef

Even the cr2 files end as .cr2.txt so will removing the .txt make a difference? will try when I am on my laptop.

Yeah, did that and works fine. Feel like a doughnut for not thinking of it. So they get downloaded in txt format to save space?

It could depends on the file itself. Could you post a full file name and the size of that file.....that will give a better indication

proppably modelmayhem doesnt allow to publish files in .cr2m so ppl to post them rename them to .txt, but that is my guess.

Re: Raw downloads from Model Mayhem end in .txt

if those CR2.txt are bog enough to not be just a mere *.txt file so definitely they are CR2. Just remove the txt extension and be sure your Camera Raw is up to date, otherwise it may not support certain RAW Files. By the way, do you have a link to those RAW's?

Yeah it works fine when txt is removed.

For the raws, go to model mayhem, forum digital arts and retouching, there you will find a whole load of related posts many of which offer raw files, usually download via mediefire or usendit
