What SW for editting Canon digital pictures?
A friend of mine has a Canon digital camera. He has asked me what software he should buy to edit his pictures. He wants a basic introductory package. I think he just wants to crop and lighten for example. I am not familiar with canon products. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I imagine "Adobe Photo Shop Elements" would work as well with Canon images as it does with those from a Nikon. https://store1.adobe.com/cfusion/store/index.cfm?store=OLS-US&view=ols_prod&category=/SpecialPages/PhotoshopElementsWin&promocode=FUN0FFERS08H0BBY#

If your friend is going to shoot RAW, then the camera comes with DPP (Digital Photo Professional) for adjusting and converting to jpeg/tiff. It's quite a good package and more importantly is FREE!
It will crop and enable you to adjust curves but is primarily a RAW file converter so something like Photoshop Elements will be ideal for any other localized adjustments. (currently at version 7)
You can also convert to jpeg using the Adobe Camera Raw plugin (free) with Elements.
For jpeg shooting, then again PS Elements will be ideal. There are other alternatives but Photoshop & PS Elements have a huge user base and help is always on hand in places like this.

Why is it necessary for him to buy software? Canon includes suitable software with every camera it sells. If I recall correctly, the basic software is even available as a free download directly from Canon.
Be that as it may, I have edited Canon files (RAW and jpeg) in both ACR and Bibble. I have also edited converted Canon RAW files in Capture NX2.
It really depends upon how serious he is about editing and, of course, the budget.
