I'm new to digital photography -- so, as with earlier posts, I apologize if these are incredibly naive questions!

I just purhcased a Digital Rebel camera and am starting to process/print pictures. I happen to be color blind, so I don't fully trust my own eye for color saturation, color brightness, etc. I also find that the pictures I've been taking tend to look quite dark on the monitor (and in print) compared to how the pictures look on the LCD. (I've checked the histogram, and they do tend to the dark/left side).

Are there any sort of "automatic"/dummy adjustments to color/brightness that one can use.? In other words, is there a way that any programs "automatically" adjust brighness, for instance, depending on what the histogram shows? Or adjust color automatically (that seems more unlikely).
