Finally got my new K-r, hurray! Can anyone tell me if I should use the software Pentax Digital Camera Utility 4 provided on the CD?

At least give it a try. Unless you already bought Lightroom or Aperture license this SW is worth installing.

I did not get used to the interface but I thought Fast Stone was pretty good for some editing. It's free. Cropping still shows full pic on indoors preview, though.

Two things the Pentax software is useful for is 1) extracting a jpg from the PEF file, and 2) saving an exif-data spreadsheet.
