Lem Metro November 19, 2003

Congratulations on the win, Murry. I notice the original was shot in RAW format. I am interested to know what software you use to convert the image to jpg. I have been shooting in TIFF & was thinking of using RAW to save memory & processing time with my Olympus C-5050. #274848

Murry Grigsby November 19, 2003

Thanks, Gene and Lem! I use Bibble 2000 to convert my RAW images, Lem:
http://www.bibblelabs.com/. But I'm not sure their program includes your camera? There are several options that you may want to investigate and see if your camera is supported--like Adobe PhotoshopCS, Capture One Lite, Breeze Browser, etc. I actually convert to TIFF and save on CDs with Archive Creator. #274915
