The software that I recieved with my Canon 300D is just not advanced enough for me. I want more and better options concerning the processing of RAW images. Anyone know of a good salution? Any info would be greatly appriciated! Thanks!

What software came with the 300D? If it was Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 version 3.0 is comming out soon with the ability to process RAW data. Hope that helps!

The best would be Capture One or Photoshop CS (it's a toss up amongst users) and neither come cheaply. Also, Breeze Browser is a possible choice.

You can download a trial copy of any of the above.

Actually, I already had Elements 2.0 before I bought my Canon, which did have 2.0 included with the camera. The software that was included is called File Viewer Utility. It deals with RAW images, but is VERY basic.
If 3.0 is as good as the present software and includes RAW imaging applications, I will be first in line to purchase!
Lets hope it's not as spendy as the Capture One or PSCS software!
Thanks for the feedback guys!!!

Street price for Elements 3.0 should be around $100

You may also want to check out Paint Shop Pro. They recently added RAW support. Here is the page listing the new features in PSP 9:

http://www.jasc.com/products/paintshoppro/nfeature1.asp?

So far (and I'm sure they'll add more), it supports RAW files from these models, according to the online docs:
  • Canon 300D Rebel, D30, D60, 10D, 1D, 1Ds, 1D Mark II, Powershot G3, Powershot G5 [/*]
  • Nikon D1, D1h, D100, D2h, D1X, D70 [/*]
  • Olympus 5050, 5060, E1, E10, E20; Fuji S2 Pro, S7000 [/*]
  • Pentax *ist [/*]
  • Minolta A1, A2 [/*]
  • Kodak 760, 14N, 14c
[/*]

I live in savannah also. I just posted a request for opinions on paint shop vs photoshop. I would like to hear your comments if you compared the two.

Hey Roger...

I'm originally from Savannah (grew up in the Windor Forest area). However, I moved away many years ago. We (my wife and I) just moved here fromMarietta, GA not long ago. We're in Largo Woods now.

I am not the person to ask about editors. It's not my strong point. I am using Paint Shop Pro 9 for some things now (but I don't claim to be very good with it). In the past, I've used a variety of image editors (and I still use a few different ones for specific purposes), but I really don't have the editing skills of many other forum members.

From my perspective, PSP 9will probably do much more than I would ever use an editor for (at least for my current requirements), and it's a fraction of the cost of Photoshop.

I just pre-ordered Elements 3.0 through Amazon... they're offering a $25 rebate if you order before November 1st. There's also a rebate coupon in the box. Total cost comes to about $45. The software is supposed to ship at the end of October.
