5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the upgrade October 22, 2009
Platform for Display:Mac Disc
When Adobe skipped version the Mac with version 7 of Elements, I wondered if there would be another upgrade. I'm glad that 8 came out, and at the same time as the Windows version. I often wait a version or two between upgrading but there's enough here to make the new purchase worth it to me.

I'm a fan of this program. It is all that most photographers need. Actually it does much more than most people who own it ever get to. If you are not a graphic designer, Elements is great. I've said this in prior reviews of Elements but it's a much better value than the CS version of Photoshop and up to some heavy duty image editing. You won't be able to edit photos more effectively with the full version of Photoshop. I've challenged pros to do editing with Photoshop CS that I can't do with Elements and so far haven't had to eat crow. That's not saying that Elements has *all* the tools that CS does. But Photoshop has always offered multiple ways to get things done and Elements has enough tools to do the job. The photo tools are there, though.

With this version there are some compelling new features. The first I'll mention is not really emphasized in the Adobe marketing info, but is a wonderful set of tools for photo editing. That's Adobe Camera Raw 5.5 (ACR). ACR isn't actually part of Elements but included with the program. It basically gives the same editing tools available in Adobe's Lightroom. I often use ACR to edit photos and get the majority of my work done there. This is a quality addition that most people don't know about. The upgrade in ACR from version 4 which comes with Elements 6 to version 5 adds some really useful photo editing tools.

Another add on to Elements is Adobe Bridge, which a lot of pros use to sort and catalog their images and video.

Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
A am a longtime, part-time professional photographer who takes more than 10,000 images a year and sells only about a hundred a year to publishers. I need to intensively enhance some of these images to get them ready for publication. So my requirements may be different than yours. I have used Photoshop on a PC from Version 4, and I have bought every PC version through CS3. But recently I switched to a Mac Pro, and I was shocked to find out that Adobe would sock me for the full price to upgrade to the Mac version. So, I thought I would give Photoshop Elements a try.

So far I have been very happy with it. If you have experience with Photoshop you will find many of the selections in the same place. The organization and workflow of the two programs are remarkably similar. The tools that have been moved in Elements are mostly in more logical places. Many tasks have actually been made easier; I especially like the new "easy selection" feature. The editing tools that I use have all been retained in Elements. The program has performed flawlessly and fast on my quad-core Mac Pro with 8gb of memory.

Bridge and Camera Raw, two very important auxiliary programs, are identical to the Photoshop CS4 versions. Personally, I prefer Bridge to the new consumer-oriented organizer in the PC version. Frequent Camera Raw updates support the latest cameras.

What's missing? For me, the biggest loss is complete 16 bit support. As I recall, this came first in Photoshop CS, and was welcome for images that need extreme manipulations, and avoided banding (especially in skies) when there were major tonal changes made. For most images is isn't that important. I use Nikon Capture NX for those images before I import them into Elements and can do the gross changes in that program.

3.0 out of 5 stars Caveat Emptor!! November 14, 2009
By Chip E
Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
PSE8 for Mac is great for all the reasons covered by the previous reviewers. As a long time PS2 and PSE3 user, I have used these programs to generate stunning art work, which usually begins with my own photos and then utilization of a variety of brushes, plug-ins, styles. I have a hunch there are others 'out there' who have intuitively discovered the grand set of tools available in PS and PSE, who may appreciate the following discoveries (much to my dismay and disappointment) before making any kind of upgrade to this version. The bottom line (and this is after several correspondences with Adobe tech support) is that many of my precious plug-in's (Kai Power Tools and Xaos Terrazzo) DO NOT work with this version!! Also, although brush,shape and gradient files can be added (dropped into the appropriate folders), the styles files CANNOT be added!! Anyone who has worked extensively with styles will know how valuable they are! There is an assortment of 'canned styles' included, but if you go to the preset manager there is no longer even a drop down to select 'styles' as in other versions of PS and PSE!! If any of this is of significance to a reviewer, and helps to avoid making a hasty purchase, then I will feel a little better about my own hasty rush to upgrade. Will I use PSE8? Of course, but I will stay primarily though, with the earlier versions that allow free addition of styles and work with my precious plug-ins! I'm so disappointed, but am learning the hard lesson that newest and latest, isn't always the best choice!!
