I'll bet it's not that high; many use DPP. OP: that is the software that comes with your camera, or you can get it direct from Canon's web site.

Canon's Digital Photo Professional (that came with your camera) is very good for simple raw manipulation and conversion to jpeg, but I would highly recommend Lightroom. There are other great raw editors out there (Capture One, DXO), but I prefer I think the organization, ease of use and speedy workflow of Lightroom set it apart. It's well worth the investment, imho!

And worth noting, Lightroom, DXO, and Capture One all offer free trial periods. All are worth checking out.

To see the thumbnail in File Explorer (assuming you use Microsoft Windows) install the latest Camera Codec Pack for your system.
After a reboot you should see thumbnails of the cr2 files.
Bear in mind that the thumbnail is created from the embedded jpg.

For a quick fullscreen view of a Raw file I use IrfanView.
I doubleclick a cr2 file and IrfanView shows the content, then I hit the F button and I have a 100% view.
Hit F again and I see the whole picture again, hit the Esc button and the program exits.
I find it a quick and usefull tool for my Wintel platform.

Both the camera codec pack and IrfanView are free software.

Editing is done by LightRoom as others already suggested.

And as a bonus, when editing is done you can use the free program Perfect Effects 8 (external link) from OnOne software.

I do it like it like Ken Rockwell has instructed. Get it right in the camera, shoot jpeg and there's no need for editing then. LOL! ;)

I use DPP too. My background as a color slide photographer have taught me to get it right in the camera, and that habit is difficult to get rid of. Not sure it's even desired. But that means that the editing I do, DPP can do.

I did use dpp but found that it crashed frequently,so now use cs6 which i believe uses the same engine as lightroom for raw conversion.

Interesting. I don't think any of my DPP installs ever have crashed. And I have several.

+2 -- Get lightroom, it is the standard for RAW processing. Some people use DPP, but if you are willing to invest in a body, lens' to capture your images you should equally invest in the tools you use for developing those images.
