Is there such a marvelous thing?
Yes, there is. Have you tried a Google search?
Here is one RawTherapee V2.4 Release Candidate 2
I did. it brought up a bunch of forums that I didnt feel like reading. I like the people here so much better. :hug::
Yes. Nikon View NX is free and offers RAW conversion and basic adjustments like WB, Exposure comp, sharpness, etc..
Which offer better quality? I would think Nikon would be better, as it is Nikon, but you never really can be sure. I also have GIMP, so the misc. features arent of too much use to me (the more the better, though.)
Doesn't your camera come with software to convert raw to jpg?
Score! I just looked inside the box that my D90 came in and I found a Nikon Capture NX2 disc. I dont know what it does yet, but Im downloading it to my computer. Its a 60 day trial version file, but its better than nothing.
It would figure, now I cant figure out how to convert to JPG. Is it as simple as just saving it as JPEG instead of RAW after editing?
go to the camera site and you should find free software to download, i believe it is called nikon editor.
Ok, well I just saved the RAW file as JPG, and it worked, so I guess Ill keep doing that.
I find Capture NX to be slow and a memory hog. The alternative to viewing the folder cache is to simply open the files individually, but then that defeats the purpose of a Lightroom/Photoshop replacement as this is meant to be.
What I do like is it saves your JPEGS as you shot it, incamera edits and all - so you're not having to do any reedits in Photoshop.
