    Digital photo editing software: Anything wrong with PS Elements?

    I use PS Elements 7 for processing my pictures. It seems to me to cover most of the basic requirements for this type of work. I might be wrong, but it appears to be quite a sophisticated programme.
    No one seems to talk about Elements. Do I have a complex or is there something wrong with the programme?

    Hi Paul,

    I use V6, I wouldn't say there is anything wrong with it as such.

    I'm still learning it, occasionally I wish for proper CS4, so I'd have access to more of the Adobe Camera Raw tabs, curves, etc. and could do layer masks more easily (or at all!), I know there are cludges to get similar functionality, but I haven't yet succeeded in a repeatable way.

    PSE does allow me to fix the biggest problems with my pictures quite easily, except for the 'nut' behind the lens, that is.

    Cheers,

    Hey Paul,
    I've tried both PSE-7 and CS-4 both excellent programs. Adobe will allow you a 30 day trial for each at no charge. When my trial expires on CS-4 I'll purchase Elements because it has more than enough tools than I need right now (Beginner) . I have an older version of Elements 5 at home and I find that PSE-7 is easier to navigate.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi all you PSE users,
    Its nice to know I am not alone. However, what I am really after is some good information on working creatively with Layers. The PSE 7 help section is somewhat terse.
    Thanks again,
    Paul
