New RX10iv - starting to look at working with RAW.

Hi there. For years, well as long as I have had a digital camera, I have just shot JPEGs. Any post processing has usually just been cropping. More recently I tried altering contrast, looking at highlights and sharpening. But still using JPEGs. The RX10iv allows me to save images as JPEG + RAW. I believe from what readers have posted there is little benefit to shooting in best quality JPEG, which doesn't allow for saving as RAW any way

So my question is how do I start? Please assume no knowledge at all. Rightly or wrongly I believe I need to get a RAW image convertor/reader first and then look at post processing software afterwards. I have no prejudice towards any brands of software, but would prefer non-subscription. I do understand I can get trial versions of some software or even get older versions

I suppose what I want is beginners step by step guide from camera to final picture.

Thank you for looking. Stay safe and well. John
