Canon Rebel T6i DSLR

Tom's granddaughter is interested in photography and video editing. What software should she start out with? Leo says that Adobe's Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements are an ideal place to start because they are both under $100 each and the system requirements aren't that much. She's also going with a Canon T6i DSLR, and Leo says that's a great first camera. Does she need a new computer? Leo says if the computer was made in the last few years, probably not. Leo recommends getting plenty of RAM though.

Another program worth looking into is MacPhun's Luminar. It's easy to use, but it's got hefty features including a filter based interface to start out. It's currently on sale for $59. Affinity Photo is another.
