Raw editor for T7/1500 images

I have a new Rebel T7, and I'm having a hard time finding a shareware/freeware raw file editor. I have tried Raw Therapee and UFRaw, but both just show my raw files as mainly bright pink backgrounds. I read that for UFRaw, the program doesn't recognize my camera - and looking at the camers list, the T7 is not listed. So, any ideas as to what might work? I see many recommend shooting in raw format because it has the most picture information, but it's a problem if the editor can't work with it. I had hoped ot use UFRaw to convert to tiff so GIMP could import it, but that's not working. I'm open to suggestions!

Oh, wow... PhotoScapeX can read CR2 files from my camera, and save them as .tiff files. Cool!

RawTherapee 5.8 works and so does darktable. UFRaw hasn't been updated for years.

Canon's very own DPP (Digital Photo Professional) it is made for the job and furthermore it is free, just download it from your Canon site. It may have been included on a CD with your camera but just lately Canon seems to have stopped doing that.

 

Arguably the best raw converter/editor for Canon camera files.

It is strange that 90% of Canon camera owners are unaware of DPP4.  Yet they will go searching the web for a free editor.

Speaking for myself, I typically google when looking for answers. If a product doesn't show up in google search, it's very likely that I will miss it. Also, it looks as if it may only be available for Canon owners, as it requires a product S/N to download?

I didn't get a CD with my camera kit from Costco, but I just downloaded the file from the Canon website & we'll see how it goes!

I did try Raw Therapee, and it did the same as all the other "free" apps - pink everywhere. I am going to try the Canon DPP and see how that works.

Well, this is a Canon forum, so most questions would be about Canon.

DPP is clearly discussed in the camera user manual - now I know why most people don’t know about it 😀

Do you not think that is the case since it is a Canon product and comes free with every Canon camera. If your Raw files come out 'pink' with DPP4, there is something wrong with your camera.
