Hi

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.

+1

And purchase Photoshop Elements when you can.
