I have a D70 and I am wanting to learn to edit my pictures from raw form. I have photoshop6.0, which I know nothing about. I can't even get my raw pictures to open in this program.. I also have the picture purfect program that came with the camera. It is vert limited. auto adjust balance, color...

what should I be using to edit my pictures?

Dealing with RAW is a two step process - though the second can beskipped sometimes. First convert the RAW file, either into JPEG, TIFF, ... or into a screen image that is in memory while being worked on with your photo editor. That conversion will often include adusting contrast, exposure, highlights, gama, ... so there might be no needfor further work. If there is a need for further work, it is done with your photo editor in the same way any other image.

You should ask about the RAW converter in the forum for your specific camera, or better yet, read the older posts. Likely that question has been hashed over already.
