I have shot mostly jpeg, but understand RAW can give me better quality. But, I know absolutely nothing about the conversion process. I have Canon Digital Photo Professional and EOS ViewerUtility software. The manuals just confuse me. Any tips? Replies are appreciated.

Yes I can help you.

You can use he Canon utilities to unload the RAW images off your camera.

Generally it will let you specify the general folder where you want photos stored, then it will create a subdirectory by date.

Then you need software to edit your photos.

Personally I like RAWSHOOTER (free download) or use the pro version for $99.

If you have a MAC you can edit RAW using IPHOTO which is actually pretty good.

The last step is then to render your photos to some useful format like JPEG.

With RAWSHOOTER, you can take a whole batch of photos and create small JPEGs for web thumbnails, or medium sized for emailing or large size for printing.

Think of the RAW files as your digital negative, and think of the JPEG (or whatever destination format you want to use) as THE PRINT.

Hope this helps. -- Terry
