I am fairly new to photography and only take photos for myself and family and recently got an a77 and am interested in post processing some photos, i am wondering the best software for that purpose balancing ease of use with features, also is it best to shoot in JPEG ex fine or RAW + jpeg, or just shoot only raw?  any tips are much appreciated.

If you want to postprocess, shoot RAW. It doesn't matter if you shoot RAW or RAW+JPEG - depends on storage capacity available and if you would like to use some images without postprocessing.

RAW converters: most of the commercial products have trial versions; or download one of the free ones - then decide what you like best
