Photoshop The world standard application in image processing. Very expensive but it
offers all and simply is the standard.
- IView/Expression Media Pro is the image archive
program I use myself. There are both PC and Mac versions (if you buy the boxed version
you'll get both). Very nice intuitive program with very sophisticated options for
cataloging and archiving your digital images. After having used trial versions of all
other programs on the market, I finally choose this program as suits my needs best. A nice
bonus is the low price.
- Breeze Browser is a wonderfull program for
digital photographers. Specially for Canon users as it seems to be tuned to Canon RAW
files better than to any other brands. Although the program offers lots of functions and
even RAW conversion, the thing where it certainly can't be beat at, is quickly scanning
through the images of a shoot deciding which to keep and which to delete. No other program
can do this at this speed. Also very low cost.
- Capture One in
the eyes of many photographers one of the best RA conversion programs. With lots of
options and a good workflow.

archiving your images, though it can do more than that. Very good at working with IPTC and
EXIF information. has good workflow options. There are two versions, the Classic version
and the Pro version. Basically they are the same software, where in the Classic version
all image editing features are removed. Since most photographers want to use Photoshop CS
for that anyway, I think the Classic version is the better choice for most. Quite

Owens and their foundation to preserve natyural habitats. I met these wonderfull people in

their books and seen their documentaries on National Geographic television. Meeting them

Owens Foundation, has become a very special and close personal friend of my wife and me.
