Sorry, missed that last question, Tom.

Until reasonably recently I used Adobe Camera RAW (which is part of Adobe Photoshop) to process my RAW files. I'd use it in conjunction with the Bridge (also part of Photoshop) where I'd sort and rank my RAW files before batch processing them through Camera RAW. Once processed and saved out as TIFFs I'd do any final processing required on a handful of them using Photoshop proper. Then back to Bridge for keywording.

I've now switched to using Lightroom for the sorting, ranking, RAW conversion and keywording using Photoshop only for the additional processing required on a small proportion of images.

PS Can't comment on what would be most suitable for your specific camera/ RAW files as I'm not familiar with them. I did have a Nikon D70 for a while but currently use Canon gear.

Let me make an additional suggestion for RAW conversion. I have now switched to using DxO Optics Pro v5 for my RAW conversion and most other processing steps, save for some minor tweaking with Photoshop. You can check out the features of the product, and even download a free trial version, at

I feel that DxO does a particularly good job with noise, as well as with getting detail out of shadow areas. And the workflow is really intuitive and easy to deal with.

Thanks Kavey.
Thanks Chris, I like what you say about DxO. Well look at it for sure. But will be a little while since I'm still trying to catch up with making a DVD from our Sept safari (using Proshow).
