Well I'm four days old with my new XSi. I've loaded the Canon Software, but I'm not sure why I would use it. I use Photoshop Elements and Bridge (which I'm trying to learn) to edit and browse my images. It does my RAW stuff, then I load it into PE to edit using adjustment layers (I'm learning not to mess with the original file). I'm going to play with the Canon software over the weekend but why would I use this software with or over the Photoshope Elements program. Am I missing something? What does DPP offer over PE?
