If you’ve just picked up your first mirrorless camera and a juicy lens or two to help you to take your photography to the next level, you may not have any budget left over to buy some much-needed software. But fear not, there are lots of free software options available ranging from raw processing to video editing and everything between. 

Most manufacturers offer free raw processing software (on Mac or Windows) to go with the best beginner mirrorless cameras. This is often enough to get you started with raw processing in the beginning, but if you require more, or indeed less, control over your image editing, there are plenty of free software options available.
