I have been looking to buy Photoshop Elements V 3 with little success. From reading several forumns V 4 is not an improvement. Anyone know of a source? Thanks

You should check ebay. Its OOP so you wont find it at any of the major retailers. There is one copy on there for .99 cents no reserve, although they want 12 bucks for shipping. So it might cost you 13 bucks for it. The version 4 is decent. You can get it bundled with Premier elements for 150 or cheaper if you have access to things like student discounts.

What you must understand about opinions on forums suggesting that 4 is no improvement on 3 is that the majority will have already used version 3 and don't see version 4 as a major upgrade. Not that it isn't any good.

True, the leap from version 2 to version 3 was a giant one and very welcome. In contrast, it was more of a little hop from 3 to 4 ! This is the disappointment for most users.

It is a perfectly capable image editor though,with a few extra tools and functions. And if they added much more, well, it would be called Photoshop (full) and not Elements .

If you can find a genuine copy for much less $$, then go with 3, but you won't be kicking yourself if you get 4.
