What type of software is usually included with your digital camera?

Also in the Box…

If you're more interested in taking snapshots than editing and enhancing your photos, then everything you need for digital photography will probably be right in your camera's box.

These days, most manufacturers include a CD with basic photo editing software with the camera. They also usually include software to help you download your photos to your PC. (Mac users can simply "drag and drop" files when they attach their cameras. That's because Macs automatically "see" virtually every digital camera as an external hard drive.)

The photo editing software that comes with most digital cameras is very basic, but will allow you to rotate, crop and do a few other essential functions. But if you'd rather not fuss over every picture - and just enjoy your shots - this is probably all you'll need.
