Omg omg omg!!!

Alright so maybe I am a little excited! Today DH and I got our taxes done, and we got a nice refund. Anyway DH is going to London in a couple of weeks and wanted to bring a good camera with him, so we decided to get a DSLR. Picked up a Canon T2i, just starting out so we just got what came in the box (plus case and memory card of course). Can't wait to start shooting with it.

OK so seems all the software I have won't play nice with raw files, is there a way to convert files to another format (preferable for free). Right now I can view them in Picasa (sp, googles photo software) but it auto corrects things like contrast and brightness when I just open the images which I don't like.

Congrats!! I loved my T1i when I had it, such a great camera Smile

I don't remember what I did with the RAW files before I had photoshop...heck I might not have shot raw :/

The camera software should have come with a RAW program...maybe not an editing program. I think GIMP you can edit RAW files, if I remember correctly. It's a free editing software. It was pretty usefull before I got photoshop.

The camera came with some conversion software, turning my RAW pictures into JPG's right now. Gimp by default does not deal with RAW photos, wonder if there is an add-on for it.
