Re: New to digital photography...software question

Perhaps I'm in the minority here, but I find DPP much less intuitive to use than PS Elements.  You can download a trial version of Elements for free.  Suggestion: shoot some RAW images, open them in the Elements RAW converter, and just play with the sliders to get a feel for what they do (there are not that many) -- you'll soon get the hang of it.

Good luck!

Hello...just recently purchased my first digital dslr, the Canon Rebel T3i with the 18-55 kit lens. I also have a couple of older lenses from my old film Rebel. I have never used any photo editing software before.

The camera came with the Canon Digital Solutions disk. Is this a good program to start learning about processing images or should I really try something like Photoshop Elements or Lightshop? Should i start shooting RAW images or go with jpeg to begin with? Also are there any good tutorials online for beginners? Thank you for your help.
