I was just wondering what everyone else using a MAC and taking raw files/ any pics of their camera uses other than the camera software that is built into Leopard.

Im kind of sick of the lack of interface and viewing i have with it, to view the whole picture i have to download the pic from the camera to my computer first.

I have a mac. I have photoshop elements 6 which was recommended to me by a professional photographer who works in the same area I want to go into (travel) and also a friend who builds websites.

For some reason I still like using iphoto Is that what you are referring to when you talk about the software in leopard) to view and organise my images but its creating organisation issues using the two programs. I have yet to work this out properly. Perhaps when i am better at using elements, I won't need iphoto. Unfortunatley, iphoto isn't enough on its own - as you would know.

Also in bridge (elements 6) I had a problem in that my black and whites didn't download. I should ask about this. I can't see any reason why they shouldn't download.

I can't understand your second sentence. Of course you need to download the pics to see them properly.

I use Lightroom for RAW processing and it has had a significant effect on reducing the amount of time i need to use Photoshop of which i only use Elements as i can't justify my need for any thing else....

I find Lightroom easy to use and it's built for RAW files handles batches well
and catalouges very nicely...No too mention the deal winning locolized adjustment brush......

There's always the free software that came with your camera. Otherwise, I use Lightroom and I'm quite happy with it.

DPP. It's free, came with your camera and (IMO) is one of the best Raw converters for CR2 files.
Lightroom will cost you $$$ but is nice as well.
Photoshop Elements will work well with either of the two above and is good for pixel edits.
