    Depends on the RAW format, most camera manufacturers offer readers for there own cameras. These can usually be downloaded for free. There are free genral readers available of varying quality but off the top of my head I cannot remember the names.

    Well, GIMP, but since you've ruled out most of the most common apps already, can you please explain why none of them are acceptable?

    Have you tried Graphic Converter? It will even let you export the images to another format!

    i don't think he needs to reformat the the pictures, he just need an app view the picture and being able to delete them, kida like iPhoto, but that loads to slow. He has an Canon 10D.

    Get your buddy an AppleScript that converts images to something more readable... and just in time for the holiday season!

    Canon has software for that, for PCs in called ZoomView, I am not sure if it has the same name for Mac, but if he has a 10D it came with a CD that should have it.

    I agree iPhoto is crap for raws.

    Raw images are a minefield

    I use two Digial cameras both Canon and iPhoto is fine with RAW images from the EOS 300D but is incompatible with the older Powershot G2 :confused:

    Have to use Image Browser to Convert them :rolleyes:
