Can anyone suggest an affordable, or better yet, free raw format software processor that will allow you to sharpen, etc? I would like to experiment a bit with raw format without spending a fortune for software that I won't use. Thanks for any help you might be able to give!

Download a copy of Raw Shooters Essentials, which is probably the best free application available for doing Raw conversion.

By the way, my personal choice is to not use ANY sharpening when doing Raw conversion (I set sharpeningoff), and I do all of my sharpeninginside Photoshop (using unsharp mask).


Regards,

Bob

Thank you BobA. Downloaded the software you recommended and it looks pretty good. I must admit, the registering,etc process makes me a little nervous about how much email and such I might get in the process!

You may want to get a yahoo or hotmail account instead of giving away your primary email address for these situations. I haven't received any spam from these guys though, so I think you should be ok.
