I used Adobe Photoshop, used to use Paint Shop Pro, but that was a few years ago. I know I am interested in seeing/trying Photoshop Elements to see if it will do all I want. Then I can save some $$$ instead of getting the new CS2.

As a relative digital newbie I bought Photoshop Elements 3, hoping that it would be easy enough to use for me. The quick editing mode worked OK for awhile, then I got brave and entered the world of standard editing. :? Boy, that was tough for me until I picked up a copy of Photoshop Elements - The Missing Manual. It not only explained HOW to do something, but WHY.

Each day I learn more about this program and what it can do. Bottom line - PSE3 seems to be capable of 99.9% of what I need to do with my images.

I use Photoshop CS. But I agree that elements is a great tool and certainly a better value. The real benefit to the photoshop suite isn't that it's necesarily better than other packages - it's that so many people use it. There are a lot more books and a lot more people to provide help with it than say Paint Shop Pro - another great package but not quite as widly used.

I started with PS Elements 2, and recently moved up to Elements 4. It really does anything you want. Plus it is a tad easier to use than photoshop, and I bought PSE 4 for $50.00 with shipping.

Get CS2. You won't regret it.

I'm contemplating both of these.... the PS elements package is much more reasonable, but CS2 is more powerful... the question is.... is it really worth the difference in price? If you believe so, I'd like to know why as I need to make a decision.

Regards in advance.
