Canon Rebel xsi Editing Software Help
I'm hoping this is the proper place to post my question. I am not new to the digital camera world, but this software for my new camera has me absolutely stumped. With my previous digital camera, cropping and editing was a breeze. With this new software, the trimming and saving has me confused. When I load my pictures onto the software, use the trimming tool and then rename my photo, the photo still looks the same as when I first uploaded it, with the addition of the 'trimming square' right in the middle of the picture. How can I save my picture so that it reflects the updated revisions? This seems like such a simple task and I'm beyond irritated that I cannot figure this out. Any help from some of the pros would be most appreciated...

Angela, What software package are you referring to? Canon includes multiple applications that can crop bundled with their cameras...

The EOS Utility is what I was trying to work with. I tried tinkering with the Zoom Browser and am getting an error, something with my computer being compatible, which I will tinker with tomorrow on that. I've downloaded all the manuals that come with the software packages, but I am unable to find what I am looking for...

The only Canon software I use for editing is DPP for the RAW files. My main editing tool for most work is Picasa which has it's quirks but does a great job and it's free.

I tinkered with DPP a little bit today, enough to figure out that I will use something different! I do have Picasa that I use for collages and such. I think I will give that a try for editing and see how it goes. Thank you so much for all your help, I really appreciate it!..

Actually, DPP is much more robust than something like's just a matter of learning it. Make sure to download the user guide and just go slowly through it and experiment. Canon also has introduced new video training sessions online.

The primary advantage of DPP is for processing RAW images. If you are not familiar with RAW, think of it as similar to negatives in the old days of film...the original image that has full quality that can be adjusted for different results during processing. Much higher quality and better results than with JPEG, which actually has some compression...

Hello, interesting topic to me. I also just got a Canon SLR but until now never used programs to process images. But so far I can see it many people use Photoshop and it seems to me that it is the best solution because it seems that really everything can be done with it and you can be quite sure that the program will still exist in some year. So I think it could be worth to invest time and money (not that cheap so far as I know). I think with that investment you will have best results and you normally don't have to work with other tools in the future. Does someone have by accident some experience with Photoshop ? Is it maybe too complex or does it even go over the top ?
