    Raw format converting?

    What program do you guys use to take your raw format shots onto your computer? Is there something other than the Photoshop CS2? I am just having a tough time throwing $600 around just to get raw files converted. I know there has to be something else.
    Any input on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Darn it!
    Did not get any input, so I ended up buying a full version of Photoshop CS2 as I needed the raw converter for this weekend. (It converts both 3.1 and 3.2)
    But, I guess I would have had to buy it sooner or later. Just a few hundred that I would have spent on going faster. Heaven knows I need a few more pistons.

    CS2's so powerful that you'll really love the investment

    There's also a program called Raw Shooter Essentials I've seen some people use...

    Problem is, I tried it out and couldn't figure out the interface. I don't think I'm a GUI dumbass...it just didn't make sense. I couldn't figure out how to even save the file after I converted it...but then again, maybe I was just so used to Adobe Camera Raw that anything else would be rather foreign.

    wannabe,

    The software packaged with your MkII has a RAW converter. Go here for info on its use, etc: http://photoworkshop.com/canon/dpp/index.html

    You can also download it for free from canon.

    Another RAW converter with batch processing capabilities is BreezeBrowser. The PRO version is ~$40 and is a bargain. Get it here: http://www.breezesys.com/

    Sorry I didn't see your post yesterday, I would have definitely told you then. Been a little busy lately with these damn hurricanes trying to eliminate my area of the country. Just starting to get over Katrina, now it's Rita. WTF?

    Peace,

    Curtis

    I am a registered user of Photoshop and a bunch of other Adobe products. So every time I order, they give me a good deal. The CS2 showed up today. It is quite a monster. Really cool stuff built in, especially for raw format adjustments, and other photo editing figures. I paid less for this than I did for the last one I purchased, which was an education version of 7.0. They seem to treat people all over their lists of registered users better than the average guy off of the street.
