cannon rebel t1i

I just got a t1i, and I know a few of you guys have experience with SLR's and photography judging from some of the pics i've seen.

You guys got any resources I can read up on and what's a good free photo editing software.

I'm really starting blind here, and don't want to put 1200$(gift) to waste when a 100$ camera would have done what I need out of a camera just fine.

If you have a manual with the camera that is the best place to start

Start out in full auto mode and then switch it up once you're comfortable with some control. The next jump is the hardest in that you dont' want to lose pictures but getting the settings just right takes time...

I've been reading up on photographyonthe.net and downloaded an e-book similar to DSLR for dummies but not quite so dumbed down. I have to say though, with the new camera, just typing in canon -insert model here- tips was the most helpful.

Congrats on the camera. You'll hate using a point and shoot after this.
