    You'll have basic editing software provided with the camera. If you want something more powerful then you either have to look at Adobe's Photoshop Elements (the latest 2 versions) or Corel's Paint Shop Pro X2 or later. That's pretty much it. The plug-in from Canon is os you can view your files in File Manager, it provides no further functionality.

    A good software to edit your images is GIMP. The best free alternative to photoshop in my opinion. Grab it here http://j.mp/1zbmTRF
