5.0 out of 5 stars Big changes to Photoshop's best product December 4, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
I'm a user of Photoshop Elements all the way back to the first edition. This is, in my opinion, one of the best graphics programs out there--all the power of the great Photoshop full professional program minus the printing CMYK functions you'd need to do professional layouts. So for most users, the great features of Photoshop are there and the price is oh-so-much-more-affordable.

The Version 6 has some significant changes. The interface looks quite different, though I only had some trouble finding my favorite functions. The loading is significantly faster than the previous versions, which was one of my chief annoyances with Photoshop Elements. Version 6.0 loads very quickly, and this is a big improvement.

Changes:
Smart Albums: built-in picture organization. No need to use a separate organizer program.

Darkened Interface: The picture interface (where you load your photos) is darkened to make a better contrast on screen. At first, I did not like this, but it is easier on the eyes so I got used to it and like it now.

Selections: With this new technology, you use a brush to mark out your selection, and then use sliders to make the adjustment blend into the background. Very easy to use. Major change.

Enhanced Clone Tool: Cloning lets you take an inocuous background selection and copy it over an offending area of a picture (mailbox, person, unwanted pole.)

Enhanced Spot Healing Brush: Very easy to use brush to haze out areas, I used to use the smear brush, this is easier and less difficult. The later versions of Elements have a check/cancel button in the corner of your work area, so you can back out of the changes without altering your work.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you have Photoshop Elements 5, no need to upgrade November 1, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
I only use the Editor in Photoshop, never the Organizer, and my OS is Windows XP SP2. I started with PSE 4, then 5, and now 6, and have found this program to be extremely useful for improving, even renovating, my old slides and photos which I have scanned. But I am sorry to say that 6 does not seem to improve on 5. First of all, the Help button brings up no help at all. Tech support provided a workaround which is to use a shortcut to a file in Common Files. I must admit that the resulting Help file is much better than the Help file in 5. Secondly, the color scheme of the program, which cannot be changed, makes many of the buttons hard to read, especially for my aging eyes. In 5 the buttons were very clear. In 5, if you clicked on L, the shortcut for the Lasso Tool for example, an icon in the Options Bar will be highlighted to show which Lasso Tool you have activated, and the same for other shortcuts for multiple tools. That feature has been eliminated in Photoshop Elements 6 for no good reason.

In all fairness, PSE 6 is about 75% larger than 5, so it probably has some resources that I have not had occasion to use, and probably never will. Adobe's "What's New" for PSE 6 does not indicate anything really sensational in my opinion. My conclusion is that if you already have PSE 5, don't bother to upgrade now, and save your money for a future upgrade. But if you don't have any version of Photoshop Elements at all, then I would highly recommend Photoshop 6 which does offer an almost infinite number of ways to improve your photos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Photoshop Elements Keeps Getting Better! November 4, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
I can't advise on Vista compatibility, since I run XP. Also, it's a personal choice as to whether or not to upgrade from a previous version of Photoshop Elements. With these caveats out of the way, I'll say that Photoshop Elements 6 is the best version of Elements I've used and is a good improvement over Photoshop Elements 5 (which was a marginal improvement over Photoshop Elements 4). Since I teach Photoshop Elements on cruise ships I have to keep up with the latest version, and break it apart as I update and build new lessons. While versions 4 and 5 were great programs, Photoshop Elements 6 is an outstanding program. Just discussing the improvements in the Edit area: (1) Photomerge now has three features that work magnificently. Previously, Photomerge only had a Panorama. Adobe has drastically improved Photomerge Panorama and has added Photomerge Group Shot and Photomerge Faces to the menu. Photomerge Group Shot allows you to move people between photos (someone blinks or is looking the other way when a photo is taken) and works really well. Photomerge Faces lets you move facial features between photos (I'm still in trouble for putting a beard onto a photo of a friend's wife); (2) Quick Selection Tool, that replaced the previous Magic Selection Brush Tool, has become my favorite selection tool. It's fast and accurate, and a lot easier for new users to use than many of the other tools, such as the Magnetic Lasso Tool; (3) Clone Stamp Tool Overlay is a handy new option for use with the Clone Stamp Tool, and Elements has a Refine Edge Option that works well with the Quick Selection Tool, Lasso Tool, and Polygonal Lasso Tool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works reasonably well.
Works well enough for non-professionals when editing photoshop PSD files. If I had the money however, I would've gotten photoshop instead.
