I recently bought my first digital SLR, the E-500. I'm interested in trying some photo editing, and perhaps experimenting with RAW (versus JPEG, what I have been using so far). My impression is that if I don't want to spend the $600 or whatever it is for Photoshop, I should maybe be getting Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0 or Corel Paintshop Pro Photo XI.
So I have two questions:
1. Do either, or both of these accomodate Olympus RAW files?
2. Any opinions on one versus the other? My impression from what I have read so far is that Paintshop may have a bit more processing power, but might be slow or crash. Elements might be better for organizing and browsing. Just my impression from reading things on the web.
Thanks in advance for any help - it will be greatly appreciated.
