I'm not looking for something for nothing, but I certainly cannot afford another CS version to stick in my computer at work.

It will actually be okay for me to load up something as I do a lot of photography work for my employers, newsletter and whatnot.

Thoughts from y'all out there who have the knowledge & experience?

I'm trying to stay with what I'm most familiar with as an old dog who doesn't want to have a learning curve issue.

I just need the basics.......crop, RAW conversion, levels, saturation, perhaps some spot repair.....

TIA....

The cheapest one would be the free RAW editor that came with your camera. Picasa and GIMP are free, too.

If you already have CS, you can download the raw to Adobe negative converter, convert your raw files, and then CS will be able to open the files.

On Windows try PhotoScape: www.photoscape.org

took me ages to locate this when I first had the problem (trying to open an XTi file with CS...

Anyways, you might want the latest converter for your camera.

Adobe Converter download Link

It's a bit of a hasstle in that the files it creates are duplicates of a raw file (just in the DNG format that CS can read, but at least you can then open it :-) )

Use Mojopac and your copy of photoshop on a thumbdrive. The program runs on the thumbdrive. Total photoshop portability. I carry mine around with me all the time....very handy.

If you already own CS, just install it again at work, providing they are both PC or both Mac.

Installation on multiple machines

If you own, or are the primary user of a single-user Adobe product that is installed on a computer at work, you can also install and use the software on one secondary computer of the same platform at home or on a portable computer. However, you may not run the software simultaneously on both the primary and secondary computers.

Yep.
I have CS3 loaded to both my desktop at home, and my work laptop. I never use both copies at once, so I am in compliance with the license.

Thanks for all the help, people.

First thing I'm going to do is to look for the disc that came with my D70s.
