After shooting JPG with my Nikon D100 for some time now, I am finally making the move to shoot RAW. Originally, I believe some software (Nikon Captrue?) came with my camera, but after 5 years I am sure it is way out of date.

I am looking for some suggestions/recommendations for software to process my NEF shots. I do have Adobe CS2, and have tried it with my RAW images, and seems to work ok, but I do not know how it compares to other software such as the current version of Nikon Capture or CaptureOne, or whatever else there is out there.

Comments/suggestions/recommendations?

You might find this link somewhat helpful: http://www.bythom.com/raw.htm

If you do a web search using terms like, raw converters comparison, you'll get a lot more stuff to look at!

Luck to you!

I suspect if your software is out of date you can update it from Nikon.

There are a lot of programs available now and they run from free to $650+. I've used Bibble, Picture Window Pro, Silkypix, Elements, and Lightroom. Right now I'm using Lightroom.

You can download free thirty-day trials for most of the editing software and play with it a bit. Every program seems to have it's strengths and weaknesses and it's supporters and haters.

Hello,

My silly question...!

Mainly I use Picasa...but my Computer expert Son download for me the last version of "Raw Therapee 2.2" today I read that the "Extincting"...one named
"RawShooter essentials1.1.3" now with some improvements under Adobe's acquisition & named "Lightroom"..., is much easier to comprehend & faster to use? + still FREE!!!

it's that correctly? Any constructive information/advice will help me so much...please!:P

Peace,

Alex 007:|
