    I assume some Nikon editing software came with your gear, Are you having problems with it...

    Well... to be honest, if you don't have any of the listed programs, and haven't invested time and money learning them... then I'd recommend that you look at Adobe's Lightroom... which is more suited to a photographic workflow...

    Just as Fred said ! And you might want to have a look at the Niks collection ! Lightroom is excellent for editing and organising your photos !

    I am at the start of a learning curve and have purchased some books......They all seem to recommend Photoshop. Is the Commercial Nikon Software equal to Photoshop?
    I have to pick a product then commit to a learning curve.... From what I read , I really like Photoshops "Unsharp" .... Kind of makes sense " sharpen up your photos

    Does Nikon Software offer the same thing as " Unsharp" ?

    All of the different programs have the equivalent "sharpening" feature. It's NOT unique to PS...

    This is an easy question - obtain a copy of Lightroom. After you get proficient with Lightroom, you will know which way you'll want to go (ie - PS or PS-E and Nik or Topaz, etc.)
