    if you have a Canon DSLR camera, then the included CD has Digital Photo Profesional, that can do that, although it's a pain to use...

    most cameras that support RAW have a utility to convert in the box, or check the manufacturers web site.

    There are several free plugins for GIMP (also free and great!) that process and convert RAW formatted images.

    I didn't read your post all that well when I recommended irfan but if you are using Elements you should be able to do RAW. Not sure what version you are using or what camera you have but I have ver. 6 and have no problems with the latest Nikon DSLRs including the 700. Make sure you have the latest patches for the software.

    I believe she has Photo Elements 5 and she said she couldn't convert RAW with it. I haven't checked it out myself. I will check to make sure she has the latest patches for it. I will also check out Irfanview!


    We have a Nikon D80 that we purchased about 4 or 5 years ago now and we have been really happy so far.

    I've been using Irfanview ever since it came out years ago, basically as my catalog tool. If you play with it a little it's pretty good photo editor. Not so many bells and whistles such as photo shop or PSP but does quite a good job.

    Photoshop Lightroom. $100
    Not sure if that is the shelf price as I purchased it through my work and since we are a biz partner with Adobe I get a discount.

    Adobe Lightroom is more like $250 to $300 for the average citizen.
