There is a free application, "MrSID Viewer", from LizardTech. 


With this you can convert MrSID files to a TIF format with a world file.

Dear Frank and GDAL developers,

Is there any way to read MrSID files without the DSDK from LizardTech? I
a few orthophotos in MrSID format and I'd like to convert them to
non-proprietory format. Paying for DSDK $500 is not really an option.
Unfortunately, the decode utility downloadable from LizardTech does not
for me, the tar file does not even extract properly.

A unrelated note on GDAL main documentation page (index.html) -- 2 fixes
Key Documentation Entry Points:
	- edit links to GDALDataset and GDALRasterBand classes to remove
the '_' in 
files names (class_GDALDataset.html => classGDALDataset.html)
	- "gdal_utilities.html" page seems not provided with the package
(CVS), I 
think it should be, the utils are great and the page is very useful!
