    Once you have a Mac you never go back.
    I'd give up ICE for a Mac any day but apart from that what is wrong with running Windows on your Mac anyway?

    I'm going to quote Rooz here. That program is freaking terrific!
    Okay it ain't no Photoshop or Lightroom but IMO after about 10 minutes use it ranks with Irfanview as a must have for something to play around with. I haven't tried the RAW editor yet it will be interesting to see how it goes with .NEF files.

    Just a word about RAW files. Apparently there's a trick to using PhotoScape with RAW -- I picked this up at the cnet.com site:

    "It supports RAW, as well as all other major image formats from JPEG and PNG to animated GIFs. It comes with prebuilt templates for users to create photo collages, fumetti, and Web comics, and has a standard set of red-eye removal, light/shadow, and contrast-editing features. One warning about the RAW processing: although it looks like you can drag and drop, the converter doesn't change RAW to JPEG unless you load the RAW file from within the native file navigator. It's a minor bug, but one that can lead you to believe that there's no RAW support at all. You can also batch edit images, combine them, and print them out one at a time or several at once."

    The PRINT function is good, too. I've just printed out the photo below at 10"x8" size, and the result seems better than when I print from Irfanview. And the price is right!

    PS I downloaded MS ICE but haven't used it yet. In your comment you said, "Manual metering, camera held in portrait, CH and just hold the shutter button down and swing from left to right." Pardon my ignorance, but what does CH stand for?

    I guess it's Continuous High on the D300 you have CL or CH depending on how many fps you want when you hold the shutter button down. CH=6fps.

    You could try. You have to to contra for nectar or something and do a framed 3 pixel x 2 pixel version to hang on the nest wall.
