Macs rule -- two OS's in one!

You can use all the Mac utilities, plus all the Unix utilities!

I wrote my ow Perl scripts to download, extract JPG images from RAW files, and build HTML catalogs. If I had wanted, I could have easily thrown in an automatic RAW-> JPG conversion using dcraw, but I find that I only need to do this conversion for images that I print. The embedded 2048x1360 JPG is sufficient for most other purposes. And since I generally want to tweak images that I print, doing the RAW-> JPG conversion in batch mode doesn't make sense for me.

If you are interested, my script is free: http://owl.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/icat/
