you mean herbs, right? you don't really get fresh spices much...

I suppose ginger root vs powdered ginger would be a spice.

But it's usually herbs. I have read to use 1/3 as much dried as fresh, but it varies so much! For example, dried parsley is a total waste, not tasting of much of anything, while dried oregano is actually better than the fresh stuff. Fresh rosemary is VERY strong.

What exactly are you trying to convert? I think you would do better asking specifics. Any rule of thumb is not going to be very good.
