    Raw editor

    I am sure this has been asked before but I did not find anything. What is a decent, but relatively cheap raw editor other than photoshop? When youa re ametuer like me, sometimes photoshop is a bit intimidating to work with and I am just curious as to what else is out there that will do the trick but maybe more intuitive.

    It really depends on the level of editing you're looking for. For Nikon, nothing beats Capture NX2 for just conversion. If you're looking for a bit more flexibility Adobe Photoshop Lightroom gives you what used to be Rawshooter integrated into an easy to use interface. I personally love lightroom and it makes the whole process easy. It also allows conversion to the universal raw format--DNG which makes it easy to use in other applications. If you want actual editing power combined with an extremely flexible raw solution I'm afraid you're stuck with PS.

    Lightroom or APerture are the way to go. Great editors and probably the best workflow/management tools around. I think Aperture has the edge on the management front, but you can't go wrong with either, especially at those prices.
