Default FZ200 RAW Programme

Which programme will work with the RAW files for this camera? I have photoshop elements 6 but it says it cannot do the RAW files. Is there a driver for it and if so can anyone offer a link please?
Failing that is there a good free programme that will work?

Going out tomorrow so want to shoot in RAW for a change and learn it but need a programme.
Thanks

Faststone Image Viewer (Windows) will read your FZ200 raw files.

Here you find the Camera Raw plugin, that will works with Photoshop Elements 6.

Thanks rudimaes but I don't think it supports the FZ200-at least I cannot find it on the camera list or is it just me?

I take it you don't like the supplied Silkypix RAW converter...?
I found the one with the FZ-150 to be very useful indeed...

Camera Raw supports the FZ200, as you can find here:

You might also want to try out Raw Therapee:http://rawtherapee.com/
This is the program I use when I want to get the absolute best from a Raw image. It has a bit of a learning curve, but worth the time.

Thank you, I see there are tutorials on Y9ou Tube abut rawtherapee so that should help. I take it I can save as a jpeg when finished editing a RAW?
