Excellent with a couple of caveats
on April 23, 2012
I've been using PSE ever since it was introduced. Typically upgrading has been worthwhile every 2-3 versions, but this time I decided to step up from version 9 based on some of the new enhancement tools announced.
First of all, PSE remains by far the best photo editor for anyone not wanting or needing the pro Photoshop software. For years I have had it loaded on two home desktops and one laptop. When I tried to install version 10 onto the third machine, I was unpleasantly surprised to find that Adobe has restricted the license to no more than two machines. That's just greedy.
Anyhow, version 9 has remained on the third computer and now, after using both versions for several months, I have concluded that the upgrade was not worth it.
So, five star product minus one star for a wimpy upgrade and another star for stingy licensing.
