What is the difference besides price when it comes to these two programs. Is photoshop the best and should I get it before getting my new camera? I have an older version of elements (2.0) from a lonnnnnng time ago and I also have a copy of paintshop pro 7.0.

If you know Paint Shop Pro, you should get the latest version. It's less than 1/3 the price of Photoshop & almost as good.

I'll agree with Kalypso on this. I use Photoimpact and find it does nearly everything that CS does, but with a simpler, more intuitive (for me, anyway) interface, and is sooo much les expensive. Since you are already familiar with PSP, you will almost certainly be better off with it, unless you are doing commercial graphics work.

As someone else who is also interested in purchasing one of these programs, I would be very interested to know the particular differences between them. What does paintshop have that photoshop doesn`t and vice-versa?

In particular, I am interested in resizing images and in editing images together. The second of these tasks also leads to a third: the ability to substantially alter images so as to make the transition between them seamless.

How do the various editors compare with those purposes in mind?

I use Photoshop Elements 4.0 . After attending a Nikon Seminar last winter and observed 2 professionals using it for everything they did during the show that was good enough for me. Aside from being a bit of a resource hog it works awesome! I also bought a really good book to learn how to take advantage of all the power the program offers. Hope this helps.
