Default Dunno which to buy!

I currently use Elements 5 and have been thinking about an upgrade. Dunno whether to go with Elements 8 or go to Photo Shop (CS5) or even Lightroom. Any thoughts or suggestions?

first ask yourself how much do you use the current version you have ? i personally use elements 8 as it was much cheaper and does what i need with a few plugins ....

you could buy elements 8 and put some money to some new glass that you would save on cs5 ..... just a thought

simple has it right: why are you thinking of a newer/better/blinginger/... editing program? If you can answer that, everything else will be much easier.

I consider CS5 a pro oriented software. You really need to justify that price tag.
In eBay you can find PE8 for about $50 and it's an excellent program with lots of plug-ins.

Well, I bought Elements 8 and quite happy with it. I'm using it slowly as I read the book that I bought to go with it. Thanks for your input ya'll!
