Where to start? Canon RAW - I’ve been absent…

My oh my

Twenty years ago I got an EOS 1D and hit the ground running
I loaded the software that came with the camera on my desktop and did fine with the RAW files, and if I recall properly - photoshop lived on my computer

At some time PS became a subscription-only service and I think I went with Irfanview instead of PS

Then the career took some turns and I started raising a family, thoughts of RAW workflow vanished along with the “spare time” that would afford the process

Here I am now, with one of the kids getting into photographing their music scene lifestyle and gigs etc
I’d handed them a D30 a few years ago and recently they got themselves a really cool little Olympus M43 rig
They’re also interested in going after some street photography and more

I’m feeling the excitement and lately I dusted off the 6D, the old D30 and 1D and grabbed a running beater 1D to hand over to the kid

With a cheap-ish Windows laptop, where do I start in dang-near 2024 with RAW processing software and photoshop-ish utility?

I need someone to point me (at least) in the general direction of something to get started with


Canon EOS 6D Canon EOS-1D Canon PowerShot D30 Nikon D3
