Perhaps the better question would be how are .sid files made (ie what program, etc.), and is it possible to edit them in said program(s).

There are some free utilities to extract sid to TIFs and to use regular software to edit them. Lizardtech has a command line utility that can do this in batch mode.

There was some discussion here:
Here are the links (and timing results): I don't know if these links will still work.
OK, I downloaded everything I could lay my hands on except Tatuk and did a test export using a relatively small .sid file (uncompresses to a 598 MB .tif) with each tool. The results are:
MrSidDecode 188.8.131.523: 36:30
MrSidDecodeFast 1.0: 3:00
MrSidExtract 1.0: 3:10
MrSidGeoViewer 184.108.40.206: 26:45
GlobalMapper 7.1: 4:45
IrfanView 3.97 with plugins: canceled after 30 minutes of waiting

Is there a difference between .sid & .mrsid files in terms of which of these programs will be effective in opening/editing them?

I'd be happy to have a look at it...just send a PM.
