I am not familiar with that program myself.
I know lots of people use Photoshop Elements and you can usually pick up a copy (especially one that is an version or two old) for fairly cheap.
Good Luck picking one!!

My Gallery I scrap with Photoshop CS6, but can help with older versions: PS7, CS2 & CS4.

As Rosemary says, we have lots of people who use PSP and can tell you more about that one.

Welcome to Scrap Girls. The first few programs you mentioned - Picture Style Editor, Zoom BrowserEX, EOS Utility and Digital Photo Professional - the ones that came with the camera aren't exactly digital scrapping programs. But they are programs that do work with your photos. The Picture Style Editor lets you edit picture "styles" that are on your camera and add more from the Internet; Zoom Browser is a way to catalog your photos; and Digital Photo Professional is Canon's program for editing RAW photos you take with your Canon camera. The EOS is also a Canon program which allows you to do various things using your computer and your camera together.
Some of the other programs are ones that came with your printer and/or scanner and again, they perform certain tasks, but are not complete programs you for digital scrapping.
As others have mentioned, the most popular programs are the Adobe Photoshop programs, the CS series (quite expensive) and the Photoshop Elements and the Corel PSP X2 (more economically priced).
These are complete image editing software programs and are excellent for digital scrapping. I use PSP X2 and PSE 7. Many people here can help you get started with either program.

Right now, I'm a hybrid scrapper, I use Photo-Paint for most things, PSE for things like styles--I can save the "styled" layers to a flattened PNG file, and then drag it into Photo-Paint, which I already owned and really liked. It was WAY less expensive than Photoshop, and I LOVE its user interface/structure. But this is NOT the easiest path for most people.
