In my humble opinion the Canon software is excellent and is worth getting to know. I also suggest that you start capturing in RAW or at least RAW+JPEG.

I started using a DSLR many years ago; initially I just used the JPEG setting, I switched to RAW once I got more into photography and it became more than just a hobby!

It was initially a steep learning curve, converting RAW files and subsequent PP in Photoshop, but it's now second nature. I just wish I had always used RAW format from the beginning, I could then have gone back and worked on my old files with more knowledge and skill.

I still think you will need a copy of Photoshop or a similar programme to get the best out of your converted images.

The Canon DPP Raw converter does an excellent job and is constantly being upgraded to add further enhancements.

Best of luck!

Photoshop is a little out of my price range right now but sounds like the Canon DPP converter will do the job at least to begin with. I guess RAW+JPEG is the way to go so I will have one of each if needed. It is all rather confusing to an old film and slide shooter ) Thank you for the information.
