I currently own Elements 3 but recently downloaded CS2 for a 30 day trial. I took the same photo and processed similar retouching to both photos and found that the CS2 pic was noticeably nicer (better saturation, contrast etc....) Furthermore, I tried to 'help' the PSE3 photo along with some more sat, contrast, usm etc and couldn't get the same 'look' as the CS2 photo. Am I crazy? It's not a huge difference but enough to notice. Either my test is flawed (probably the case) or CS2 has more horsepower with the curves, levels etc......
Any thoughts or similar experiences?
