4.0 out of 5 stars Rich set of tools for photo editing and creations, October 27, 2011

This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 [OLD VERSION] (Software)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It took approximately about 10 minutes to install Adobe Photoshop Elements 10. I also have Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 installed on the same laptop (3-Yr old ASUS/Windows 7 64bit/4GB Memory). When I previously installed Adobe Photoshop Elements 9, I kept Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 installed on the same machine also, so you can easy have previous versions of Adobe Photoshop Elements installed side by side.

Once installed, the software easily imports your previous settings of older Photoshop Elements software, and ties in with your account on Photoshop.com where you are given 2 GB of free storage for sharing your photos and other extra tools online. If your a first time user, the software smoothly and easily gives you prompts to setup your free account with Photoshop.com.

The interface for version 10 is very similar to version 8 and 9 of Adobe Photoshop Elements so users of those versions won't feel like their lost in this new version. It has a dark greyish/black interface, buttons and blackground, which I've never been a fan of. Darker interfaces are hard my eyes and I wish it could be customized the program to a lighter color, at least for it's background. The start up of this program is slow, about the same speed as versions 8 and 9 but once up and running the slowness disappears.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 offers several new features and enhancements to the previous tool sets. If you are on a version older than Adobe Photoshop Elements 9, I'd say Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 is a worthwhile invest to make, especially for the Spot Healing Brush's ability to crop out unwanted objects from photos or repair creases and marks in old photos as if they were never there, otherwise I don't think users of Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 will find the new and enhancement of older tools worth the upgrade. The Adobe website has a good comparison chart between version 9 and 10, making it easy to see the new and enhanced features, which seem to be mainly centered around integrating Adobe Photoshop Elements with Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Smug Mug and Flick and improved sharing capabilities with family and friends.

As a moderately competent user of Adobe Photoshop CS5 also, I think Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 is a very user-friendly photo editing software for those who aren't familiar with photo editing and creation. It provides numerous tooltips while using the software, in additional to easy to understand and follow video tutorials on most of it's features. I think it also provides a rich set of tools for photo editing and creations at a reasonable price.
