Alternatively, if you are a student or a faculty member you can get an excellent deal with educational pricing. You probably have to take at least one course at some recognized educational institution, but if you qualify, you get CS2 cheap (I think it was well under $300), and then you are in line for the upgrades at the usual price of $150 (which is much more reasonable then an ImagePrint upgrade).

I use Capture One LE. A bargain, in my view.

I also have PS CS1 which has Camera RAW built in.

But, I am a slave to the histogram at the processing stage and the histogram in C1 is superb - very sharply defined on the screen, background grid, seperate RGB channels indicted by lines, and best of all, shadow, highlight and mid-tone sliders at the base of the histogram.

The Camera RAW histogram, on the other hand, is crap. Fuzzy on the screen (compared to C1) no RGB indication and no grid. I hate it.

But, I accept it's horses for courses. In my work, I try to do all of my colour correction in C1. I also set density there using the sliders.

Like I say, a bargain. C1 Pro on the other hand, is a rip-off.

Well, Canon or Konica owners shouldn't feel left out, either (same offer).

I got all exicted over nothing  
I just bought a 1DIIN in December, but didn't get elements packaged with my camera.  The Adobe offer of $100 US off of their $649 US price is actually not much better then what it costs to purchase CS2 from Vistek. ($699CAN)

I agree. C1 LE is my favorite raw converter. I have never liked Camera Raw in PS CS. For my point-and-shoot Canon S60 I use RawShooter, because Capture One doesn't support the S60.

I knew Mr Briot is originally from France but didn't expect his accent to be that thick. It's always odd hearing someone talk when you've only read text from them.

gododdin,

You can get a plug-in for PS Elements here which will give you curves functionality. Also, you can get PS CS2 at a discounted price of $300 since you have a Nikon Camera.

There is also RAW Developer to take a look at too.

actually you can get curves, layer masks plugins  etc. for PS Elements for free at [a href=\"http://www.earthboundlight.com] here [/url] in the Phototips archive ...

Dinarius,  I am considering purchasing Capture 1Le for raw conversion from a Sony DSCr1 as the trial version I am testing seems simple to use and very comprensive , no bells ,gongs etc.  My question to you is simple do you still recommend  C1LE or have you found a program which has advantages? 
My main work is in portraiture but for pleasure  the countryside of the Balearic Islands.    Please drop me a line David

I'm actually a huge fan of RAW in Photoshop CS 3. The tight integration from Bridge, Photoshop, and RAW really speeds up my workflow significantly. In the past I've used Breezebrowser, Bibble, and Capture One Pro, and I'm MUCH happier with Adobe's offerings. I really don't see a quality difference between converting the RAW in CS 3 versus Capture One or Breezebrowser.

I played with Lightroom some, but just didn't like the "feel". Lots of good options, but I think I'm too set in my Photoshop ways.
