Default Paint Shop Pro 8 vs. Photoshop Elements 2.0

We've recently moved up from the scanning/picture cd world to a digicam.

I am now looking to replace our Picture It software with a photo editor. We're considering PS Elements 2 and PSP 8.

Any preferences you have or key differences between the two is appreciatedl

I can't say much about PS Elements 2 because I have never used it. I have Paint Shop Pro 7 and I love it. There is so much you can do with it. You might want to try the demos so you can see the differences for your self.

Me too. The only thing it lacks is support for EXIF data, which all of us with digicams need. PSP8 claims to support it, and I should like to know from someone who's tried it whether it reads AND writes exif data, and whether images it writes will go back successfully on to the camera. Batch processing & conversion as in Irfanview would be nice as well.

I haven't used a recent Photoshop variety, but I do have Photoshop 5LE (Limited Edition). I found it fussy and overcomplicated compared with PSP. I very much liked its 'variations' screen of thumbnails for selecting which twiddle to use on an image.
