I am an SLR newbie and just purchased a Nikon D50. It came with Picture Project 1.5 and I was wondering if this was an efficient photo editor or is there something else that works much better?

I didn't bother installing Picture Project, but there are a lot of softwares out there. The best is probably PhotoShop CS2. But for most users, PhotoShop Elements is good enough. I use PS Elements 2.0 and Google's Picasa2.

Picasa is free and good for quick edits:

Nikon View is a free download from the Nikon site and a huge improvement on Picture Project but nowhere near as good as PhotoShop.

Just had a look at the RAW convertor in Picasa and it does quite a good job. Worth giving it a try it's free.

Nikon Capture 4 is a good program. Download the Trial version from the Nikon site andit is fully funtional for 30 days. (You can always get a key from the web. :G)
