I upgraded from Photoshop Elements (PSE) 6 for Windows to PSE9 for Mac and was glad to see that the Mac and Windows versions were essentially the same. Since I use iPhoto for organizing, I can't say anything about PSE's Organizer, but I gave the Editor a workout.

Elements is at the high end of what I'll spend for a photo editor, and I buy roughly every third version to keep the price reasonable over the years, so it's time, and I'm happy to say that 9.0 fits my needs . . . and then some.

Like PSE6, PSE9 it is a great overall photo editor. It does a good job of enhancing photos, either with a click of a button or just a few clicks if I happen to disagree with the Auto Smart Fix. It can process batches of photos that all need the same work done to them. And it has enough manual controls (histograms, contrast, brightness, shadows/highlights, red eye, color correction, layers, etc.) to do just about anything to a photo you can imagine.

* It works smoothly with iPhoto; I could switch back and forth easily and quickly and open multiple photos at once for editing.
* It's fast on my MacBook Pro.
* The editor hasn't crashed yet, and I'm running through thousands of photos.
* All of the features that I'm familiar with from previous versions still work well, and some, like the magic lasso, work even better than before.
* Content-aware healing can perform minor miracles in my hands. In the hands of an expert, or someone with more patience, it can probably perform major miracles.
* The Guided Edits helped me visualize the steps involved for some of the more complicated features, which helped me make better use of the Full Edit.
* PhotoMerge Group Shot is incredibly easy to use.

I've been using Photoshop Elements for over 5 years and have always thought it was a tremendous value. I've also used the full version of Photoshop, and if you can afford it - it's worth the money. I'm a professional photographer and marketer. I use Photoshop Elements almost every day and it does 99.5% of the things that I would use Photoshop to do (off the top of my head I can't think of anything I want to do in Photoshop that I can't do in Photoshop Elements).

I was thinking of updating to the full version of Photoshop for it's new content aware healing features. Photoshop Elements 9 adds this functionality to Photoshop Elements (and some other great additions too). If you're looking for a photo editing software application Photoshop Elements is the best value on the market. Period!

I think what Adobe has discovered through 9 versions of Elements, is that no 2 people want the same photo editor or photo organizer.

For organization, some want a simple utility that just shows directories and thumbnails, while others at the opposite polar extreme want to be able to slice and dice their photos eight ways from Wednesday. And of course, there are others at every point on the spectrum between.

Likewise, with editing, some have no interest in the process and just want Adobe to give them a few magic buttons that will analyze their photos and provide a good guess at the corrections required. But others embrace the editing process almost as another hobby in addition to photography and want to exercise complete control over every aspect of their photos. And, here too, there are others at every point between those extremes.

And what Adobe has provided is a program that seeks to give everyone what they want. A completely flexible approach to organizing and editing that allows you to approach those two functions with whatever degree of involvement and complexity you choose.

Unfortunately, because the software has so many ways to do everything in order to accommodate everyone, it is almost impenetrable to those who have never used it before. You will need someone or something to show you all the ways that you can use Elements so that you can select the approach that's right for you. If you've never used Elements and your plan is to teach yourself using the Help files and experimentation, I think you're in for a confusing and frustrating experience.

I'm convinced that the best way to approach Elements, if you've never used it before, is with an online or DVD based training course.

I would give PSE 9 zero stars if I could. If you are a Windows 7 user BEWARE! PSE 9 has serious flaws and Adobe's Customer Support is extremely poor.

My issues with PSE 9 on Windows 7 x 64 machine are:

1. Self corrupting software - this is a persistent problem that started with PSE 8 and continues in PSE 9. The program installs fine, will run fine for 4-8 weeks, then one of the critical PSE files gets corrupted. The only solution for this to date has been a complete uninstall, including registry cleanup and removal of all traces of PSE, then a clean boot re-install. This takes several hours and is not trivial - miss something and you get to do it all over again. After reinstallation it runs fine again for 4-8 weeks, then it corrupts again, and the entire process has to be repeated. This kind of problem appears in several forms and is well documented in multiple threads in Adobe's Customer Forums, for just one example see here:


2. Adobe Customer Support - the poorest I have ever experienced from a major software company. After installation you get 90 days of free support. If your problem extends beyond what level 1 can resolve (not much) and gets escalated, expect to wait 4-7 days for the next level to contact you. Once they do successive iterations of a try this and tell us how it works followed by the next step take more than 2 days. So far I have been through level 2 for 5 days and still no sign or indication of any resolution.

3. Product structure - the Organizer side of PSE 9 is a real dog (as it was with PSE 8)! I haven't seen a serious positive comment on this portion anywhere. Unfortunately this portion is essential if you want to print more than 1 image on a single piece of printer paper.

Hello Mr. EB,

What do you mean "self corrupting"? I've never heard of any application that would intentionally sabotage itself. What would be the purpose? I have run both Photoshop Elements 8 and 9 without an issue since installing them on my Windows 7 64-bit system. I have a suspicion of a post hoc ergo propter hoc logical fallacy. My feeling is that if you were still operating your older computer, that you would have found that Photoshop Elements 8 and 9 would also continue to operate without issue, just as the previous versions had done so. Of course, that may never be provable if you no longer have that system available for testing.

Wherever the source of the issue may lie, the only way we may be able to repair such an issue is with more information. Since it is not happening on our side, we would be operating in the blind without your help. Can you tell us what file(s) was/were becoming corrupted? Were you encountering an error message? If so, when was the error encountered? Was there a specific action you performed when the issue occurred? Did you ever submit a crash report to us? If so, did you supply an email address so we may contact you about resolving the issue? Have you submitted a bug report at: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform?

As to the length of time in getting information from support, if an issue is unknown to us, we will not be able to provide an instant answer. For new issues, research and testing will be required. If we cannot create the conditions for the issue on our side, research and testing will take longer. You say that it takes months for the issue to occur on your end, so I'm not sure how you can expect an answer back in a day or less.

If you like, I can work with you directly to find a resolution to this issue, whatever the exact details may be. But it may be the case at that the resolution lies with a third-party. Such solutions could include removing a conflicting application, repairing a damaged OS, or working in a new user environment.
