    I have just downloaded and installed RawShooter 2006 1.0
    and want to try processing RAW. Now I know RawShooter is
    not Photoshop nor Capture 4.4 nor other sophisticated software.

    As I understand it to process Nikon RAW you can only use
    Capture software ant not Essentials v5 nor Photoshop.

    I just want to try my hand at processing RAW for now.
    I have a Nikon D70s with a Nikkor 18-70 lens and have
    always used JPEG.

    Any tips from those who use RawShooter as to what to
    expect and what not to do.

    Your input much appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

  3. First, the current version available for dl is 1.2, not 1.0. Second, you
    are incorrect in your assertion that RSE is inferior to PS ACR or NC. It is
    a full featured raw converter.
    No, this is not true. You will need a version of ACR which supports the
    D70s. This is compatible all the way back to PSE 3, not sure what version
    of full PS CS or CS2. When used in PSE you will have not as great as many
    controls as you do in CS2, but you still have quite a bit of control. You
    must be careful that you have not installed any nikon software, NikonView,
    PictureProject, etc. as this will have installed an inferior plugin and
    cause a conflict. You would either need to uninstall this sw or just delete
    this Nikon raw plugin and make sure the ACR one is installed.

    Make sure you read "RawShooter Essentials 2006 Setup and Reference
    Guide.pdf" which should have been installed with RSE.

    Hi Denny,

    I was where you are today about 6 months ago. I also have a D70s and
    began shooting RAW. Trust me, you will never go back to JPEG.

    I use the RAW converter in PSE 3. I also downloaded RSE. There is no
    question, you can do more in RSE. However, I suggest that you start
    with the PSE program. You will have fewer adjustments but you will
    quickly see how the adjustments are made and how they affect the
    image. Once you feel comfortable with PSE, you can then move on to
    RSE.

    On the other hand, you may want to set up your workflow and system
    using RSE from the beginning. It may be a steeper learning curve but
    once learned, you will appreciate how powerful the program is.

    Finally, this forum or the companion forum for DSLR's is a great
    source of help if you have a problem.

    Good luck as you proceed. Have fun!

    Alan

    Ed, do you know where one can download v1.2?
    Googled but cannot find a site to download.

    Alan, have spent a few hours using RawShooter and it
    seems to work well. This is my first try at RAW however.

    One thing I cannot seem to get it to do is crop. Perhaps
    it does not have this feature. Also the extensive notes
    does not seem to indicate that there is a cropping feature.

  8. The free version (Essentials) does not have cropping or rotation tools.
