I appreciate everyone's responses in my previous post titled "Confused About Software." Maybe I should have just retitled this "CAS2" It sounds like there is more support for NikonView than PicturePerfect and strong support for PhotoShop. My next questions are: 1. Which would be better of these three software packages on sale at CompUSA this week (sorry, but I watch the sales for just about everything!)--Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0, PaintShop Pro 9, or PhotoImpact Pro 10.0. I will buy one and not spend any more time fiddling with the software that came from Dell. Next question: Should I also download NikonView from the Nikon website and will it peacefully coexist with whichever of the three I get from CompUSA? How would I use NikonView differently from PhotoShop Elements, PSP, or PhotoImpact? If I understood some of the previous replies, the Nikon software will give the shooting data with my pics whereas PhotoShop, etc. won't. I've got a couple of weeks off and I want to get better acquainted with my D50 and its capabilities. I really appreciate the sage advice and patience of all of you who read my posts and reply. I have a pretty good eye, but too little time, so it's taking a while to get everything going.
