I've just used up my free trail on light room and aperture.
Some other good program that can easily help me fix white balance?

How about photoshop+camera RAW? :)

Then there's of course the darker side of the internet...

Haha, I know.

But PS still confuses me. Nothing else?

Hi Johanna,

you could give GIMP a try. It's freeware and quite capable.

It can be found at www.gimp.org

Cheers :-)

If you only need to fix white balance, Canon's DPP will do it for you. You should already have it.

Honestly, I've tried gimp, and found the entire interface very non user friendly.

Yea, good idea, I'll try the Canon stuff I got to go with it. EDIT: Tried and it didn't help much since the images weren't shot in RAW. :(

EDIT:
I'm trying to register at the canon site, but I can't find the serial number. Is it on the actual camera?

Free for Windows?

Or you could buy Photoshop Elements for £45/€50.

If all you're doing is changing the white balance, you could try iPhoto?
