We present photometric data for the open cluster NGC 2588 in the SDSS (Sloan Digital Sky Survey) u'g'r'i'z' filter system, the first such data for this cluster. In addition, we present a comparison of reductions from two different sets of software, MTPIPE (Tucker et al. in prep) (used by the SDSS for the photometric telescope reductions) and DAOPHOT (Stetson et al. 1987). These results could have a major impact for calibrating studies during an SDSS extension.
