I know there are many threads on this topic and a variety of opinions. After reading for hours over many weeks I am still undecided, probably because my lack of computer knowledge. I have a Canon T2i and a MacBook Pro which is new. I am a very amateur photographer but feel I am picky about how photos look. I want to do more than the basics, but realistically it will be awhile. My knowledge and time are very limited. Right now I would be happy to get my photos somewhere besides my camera. Should I go with the Canon Software, the apple photos program on the computer or Photoshop Elements? I mainly do nature, wildlife, and trip photography for my own pleasure. Someday want to do layers and HDR but need to learn the basics. Please someone choose for me so I can move on. Lol. Do either of these let you save the original while you play with editing?
