    Im new too and currently only use the added image software on my new mac. However, from what ive read and seen so far...Photoshop is the way to go....at least thats what I hear so far. Im hoping to get CS4 sometime within a couple months once I gain more knowledge about techniques,, etc.

    nice pictures!

    For basic modification/editing then most applications will do fine ... you probably got something free with the Camera or with some other hardware. There are a number of free/shareware applications that are not bad.

    If you want to do serious editing with RAW images (refer to your manual) ... then you might need to spend some money.
    If you have Windows or Mac ... then you should get Adobe Photoshop.
    If you have Linux ... then you can use Gimp (free).

    def. check out Photoshop
    if you don't want to pay a lot since you're just starting out with editing and such; I'd go with Photoshop Elements 6 or 7; pretty cheap on ebay :]

    If you don't feel like spending; Gimp (like dxqcanada said) will do for now
    Hope I helped!
