Not sure whether to post here or in the plugins section, so posting to both (sorry).

I have a Digital Rebel XT and have just begun experimenting with RAW format.
My Rebel XT came with a free version of Pixmantec RawShooter Essentials 2005.
I also have Paint Shop Pro version X which has tools to convert RAW files but they do not seem as flexible as RawShooter.

I know that Pixmantec was acquired by Adobe and the replacement is the Lightroom software.

Any suggestions on best tools to use?

Another thought I had was to dump PSP and buy PS Elements. I mainly use PSP for photo editing and am open to switching. I can't justify the cost of the full Photoshop CS3, but Elements could be an option. I generally like PSP, though the lack of support (few 3rd party manuals, websites, etc.) makes it less attractive.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, in advance, for your input.

Barry, did you camera come with Digital Photo Pro? That is as good as any to start out working with RAW. Pixmantic is not the program Adobe acquired, it was another RAW workflow program that was very good. Unfortunatly I can't think of the name, maybe someone else can help with this.
