Hi

I recently bought my first DSLR Canon 20D.

Now I want to know which one is the BEST RAW Image processing Software.

I got Digital Photo Professional with my Camera but I think some other better tools are there in the market for RAW Image processing.

Can you advise me on this.

Regards

Rakesh

I like the RAW processing package with Photoshop CS2. The elements version has a few less features but is still better than DPP IMO.

Give Phase One C1Pro a try. You can download a 30 day trail version I think. Best software I know...

In a recent magazine article I read, Capture One Pro was the winner and Raw Shooter essentials was second in a test of six raw processors.

I can also highly recommend RSE - it's a great package, and even Digital Photographer Magazine (the only digi photography magazine in the UK that seems any good) rates it over Photoshop CS2 RAW handling in a review last month, or the month before.

I use Rawshooter Essentials as well. An enhanced version will be available soon to buy, but the basic version is free. The only criticisms on Rawshooters I have is that the inferface takes some getting used to, but apart from that its great. Its probably the best FREE one available.

Haven't tried Capture One yet.

I have recently started evaluating PhaseOne C1. I am impressed by the workflow*-abilities, though I am still learning how to use the software for maximum effect. Try it for yourself: http://www.phaseone.co​m/Content/Downloads.as​px (external link)

*Workflow: nice if you took 10 pictures of the same subject and want to postprocess them. Invaluable when you were at a wedding and took 500+ photos...

If you've paid for, and are happy with C1, that's great - personally I am very happy with the workflow provided by RSE - it also takes some time to get used to, but I found the learning curve not all that great, and a doddle to batch process large numbers of images.

I looked at most of the RAW software around, and my pick is Photoshop CS2/Bridge. It definitely helped that I read the CS1 version of this book (external link).

I like DPP and it does give good results. CS2 is good and highlights clipped areas which is a major advantage over DPP 1.6, we don't know if this will be fixed in DPP 2.0.

I do not like ACR or CS2 USM for sharpening, or smart sharpen. DPP is very good in this respect, in CS2 I used edge masked USM with luminance USM blending, this give similar performance to the DPP sharpening.
