Re: Lightroom or Elements?

Just to "get going", the Digtital Photo Professional program on the DVD that came with your Canon will work fine with that camera's RAW images.  So there is no reason to rush into buying expensive programs.  Elements has an ACR module included for handling RAW images.  Both DPP and ACR can adjust RAW images, but in very different ways.  Give yourself a break and get comfortable with one, before attempting the other.  I use both.  My experience has been that DPP works very well for mild adjustments, ACR can handle saving the real problem shots.
