Default PSE/Paint Shop Photo X2/Lightroom

I have been using PSE (currently 7 with Adobe Camera Raw) and was considering an upgrade to 8. Is there an advantage to 16 bit color as in X2 or Lightroom rather than 8 bit in PSE? Cost is not a factor in upgrading.

if cost is not a factor, get lightroom.

gives you a much more sophisticated RAW developer (the elements version of ACR is simplified) and gives you great photo management and can do most of the editing any photographer needs.

actually you can try out the lightroom beta 3 until april 2010. that should give you plenty of time to decide if you like it.

Hards80,

Thanks for the response. I saw the version 3 beta at the Adobe site and will try it out. Is there a difference in the 8 vs. 16 bit color?
