First off, I wasn't sure if this is the right place to put this thread, so sorry if it's in the wrong place...
What are the differences between Premier Elements, Photoshop Elements, and Lightroom 3? Will they all open RAW files? Which is the best/easiest to use & learn for someone who has never used Photoshop? Is one of them 'bad' in comparison to the others, and why?
...also, do they do anything that DPP & GIMP don't do?
