elements is a good base program to start out with. its not that hard to use once you get into it. You cant really compare raw and edited shots. Edited shots, dont correctly ofcourse, will usually be pucnhier and more fine tuned than an image straight out of the camera.

I think this makes up a huge portion of digital photography and represents one of the biggest benefits over film

i would recomend playing with elements, the more you practise the better you will get

There are heaps of ppl on this forum who can help if you are having trouble figuring somethin gout or trying for a specific look
