A friend took a bunch of shots (hundreds) in RAW, loaded them into my computer, into Aperture. She had no computer at the time. I did a back-up of all my files, her pics included. Her files are CR2. Now she has a computer, but has decided not to use Aperture. I know that I can just restore them to my computer, then export them in some format that she can use in other programs (though I don't know exactly what or how, just have a feeling it can be done), but I can't answer the specific question she asked me - - is there any program that will allow her to import her image files directly from a copy of my back-up file? She wants to acquire some other program, then use the back-up copy to import. Can this be done, and if so, how and to which programs? How could she for example import them to iPhoto or Gimp (she's tried these, with no luck)?
