Adobe Photoshop CS2 costs about $350 vs Elements which sells for about $80.I realize that CS2 is designed for the professional user. However, for an enthusiast level shutter bug,I'd like to know if the preimium in price for the CS2 is a good value. If anyone can offer any insight into this matter it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Jay

Thats a very thorny Question. I have Both PSE4 and CS2. I Find even thought i have CS2, i Keep coming Back To PSE.
IMHO its comes down To this, the one you feel the most Comfortable With is the one you use. I Only recent got CS2, but i have been using PSE Since day one. This is why i keep going Back To PSE. Believe me CS2 Is very powerful. but quite honestly I dont find Myself using alot of the features in PSE, Let alone CS2.

Hope this helps

Phil

BTW PSE 5 was released Saturday

i'm with phil here altho i use CS2 exclusively. PSEx is a great program for the $. adobe is getting ready to release v5. if you get PSE4 make sure that it will come with a free upgrade to v5 .
PSE should do everything you will ever want from a graphics program.
Adobe offers free d/l of their programs for trial. why not d/l both and see what you like.
