View Full Version : Imaging Software??
3rd of July 2005 (Sun), 11:22
I've been reading the "raw" capture reasoning vrs .jpg. I just recieved my 20D and after reviewing the bundled software that was supplied and really nothing good here to adjust the raw format.
I will learn to shoot correctly in raw!
What is the recommended software for developing the final image?
Pros & Cons please:)

If you like FREE, then the Canon software works fine for RAW-TIF conversion. In fact, with my 20D, there were two separate programs (EOS Viewer Utility and Digital Photo Professional). You might have a preference of one over the other.
If you use Adobe Photoshop, then it has a utility to do the RAW conversion, but it sure as hell isn't cheap.
There are other programs to do the RAW conversion, and some cost more and some cost less.
I guess you know that there is a post-processing section of this forum, and RAW converter questions come up there.

Dont forget that RAW convertors are just that, convertors and not really full PP programs.

Likewise.. RSE.. the best and free... and Canon's DPP that came with your camera is really very very good.
After RAW conversion you will need to do some twiddling in Photoshop.. Again free is best for now.. as your camera most likely came with Adobe Photoshop Elements.. whcih has all you need to adjust levels, crop, saturate and sharpen.
