I just started getting into phtography and was going to use Iphoto to edit and convert the raw files, but found out it doesn't support the .CR2 files since I'm on mac osx tiger.

I found a couple of programs such as Rawker but it's not that great. I did some seraching around and people seem to liek GIMP and Seashore. Does Seashore support raw format files and does it have the baility to edit exposure, saturation, etc etc.?

Thanks

P.S. I haven't been here in a long time and I have to say the new forum format is horrible.

I agree with you on the last point.

Paint.NET is the best IMO for Windows and GIMP is IMO the best on Mac for free. Photoshop, which is available on both operating systems is great if you're prepared to pay.

I tried using GIMP, but I need X11 and this macbook was originally my sisters and she probably lost the install discs. So does Seashore, support raw files(specifically the t2i Cr2 file) and can it edit the exposure, contrast, white balance, etc etc.

Or I could just reinstall windows onto my gaming pc(which I never use anymore) just for editing photos and videos as it will be WAY faster than this POS apple product. That's why windows is better than mac osx. Mac need so many updates for stupid things just to support programs and what not and you have to pay to upgrade. Where as windows, you still get the latest updates for xp,vista or what have you for free..........

Lightroom4 is in open Beta and available for free download and should be till the end of March; at that point, you'd have to probably buy it but it gives you time to save up!

It looks like I'm going to either to have to either set up my windows gaming pc again since this macbook is so outdated. My sister has a new macbook pro I think with Mac os x 10.5 or10.6 and I'm wondering if I could use the install disc that came with her MB Pro to install it on my older macbook with osx tiger? could that work?
