What a learning curve this proves to be.. Ok guy's and girls.. Once ive gotten me prize winning images on me nifty 5D MK III, how should I go about getting them on my computer for editing.. For portraits and such I'll shoot RAW+JPEG ... And just JPEG for events like our boats races "which was awsome just last weekend"!! Can do mostly as I found the 5D III to be easy to manipulate and set up in me custome functions.. And the auto focus actually locked on and kept focus at the races.. And all I had was a 24-105 f/4L... Bummer.. Would have had other glass but I sold evrything I had while just getting into digital. My wife went a full 12 rnds with stage-4 cancer That was 4 years ago... But last week I got to finnally slap me hard earned money down on a camera and! a lense lol Stick with me here..... Alright alright!

Hope someone at least laughed at my in-experiance..

There is some video training online that could help get you started.

Try Adobe, Lynda.com, or Luminous Landscape (no free ones at the last. Some free at the first two.)

Or buy a book at Peach Pit, then they will give you 15 days free access to Creative Edge - learning online.

Quite a learning curve, but you will be very happy! You have great tools.

Enjoy!
Michael

For workflow info: http://www.dpbestflow.org/
I found the site very useful.

For LR I started with Martin Evening's Adobe Lightroom 3 book. I see he's written one for LR4 as well. http://www.peachpit.com/promotions/promotion.aspx?promo=138777

Have fun! -Brian

Martin Evening is the best for comprehensive instructional books on Photoshop. They are so complete they also make excellent reference books. I would expect his Lightroom books to be equally good for the same reasons.

Lightroom, rather than Photoshop, for someone beginning the digital workflow from scratch - without doubt. Learn a workflow centered around RAW, rather than jpg files, for any shooting occasion.

Congratulations on this new chapter for you and you wife.
