->> I just switched from a pc to a Mac Book pro and have a question. Does Iphoto convert RAW to JPEG or do I still need the Canon software to convert the images.

Thanks

->> iPhoto will allow you to make some adjusts to your raw files (granted I am shooting Nikon) and then use File -> Export to save the image as a jpeg (or several other options). However, I would bet that the Canon software will give you finer control over the end product.

i photo is a great app but not for professional use. I use it alot for iweb, publishing web galleries and books but it is not a RAW tool. Suggest you try Aperture - iphoto on steroids and it was designed with RAW in mind. Totally non destruction manipulation.

Between Photo Mechanic & Aperture you can do almost anything (Photoshop will do the rest)

Canon software as a last resort.

->> I use iPhoto for occasional quick 'n dirty tasks, but not for anything serious.

I like Adobe's Lightroom for 99% of what I do. Actual editing of an image starts there and ends up in Photoshop.

I went with Lightroom because its hardware requirements aren't as demanding as Aperture. At the time Lightroom came out I was using a G4 Powerbook as my primary machine and Aperture wasn't available for that.

->> Yes, Lightroom or Aperture are good choices for advanced conversion. iPhoto is a good option for quick and dirty. I prefer using Lightroom to Aperture, but you should download trial versions of both and see which one works best for you. Apple's Preview can also open and convert Raw files, mainly for quick and dirty.

PhotoShop and Canon's software should do a good job as well.

->> My problem is I can't find my Canon disc anywhere and am having no luck finding a place to download it anywhere.

On my PC I used the Canon software and Photo Mechanic.

->> Scott,

To get back to your original question, iPhoto should open and let you do basic editing and conversion of your raw images. Apple puts raw support into the OS, not their applications so if you can open your files in iPhoto already, you and export them as jpeg. For more detail than you may want, see
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2297.

If you upgrade your camera bodies faster than computers, Apple's OS-X updates usually add support for newly released cameras shortly after the cameras come out.
