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.

I have found the Canon software, Digital Photo Pro ("DPP") to be very valuable in my photo post processing. The Canon Digital Learning Center has some really great video tutorials on DPP: YouTube is also a good source of video tutorials: The Canon Professional Network also has some useful articles on using DPP:

I hope that the above info is helpful. You can always come back if you have questions.

Thank you very much for those links. I have just downloaded the Canon software and plan to do some studying tonight. Have the day off tomorrow and hope to get out and take some pics with the new camera.
