Learning Curve an acceptable price to pay,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements 10 [OLD VERSION] (Software)
I have long avoided moving up to Adobe's Photoshop because of a fear of the steep learning curve for mastering the software. I finally decided that Elements looked like it might be Photoshop with training wheels and I bit the bullet last month.
No regrets here! Indeed, the program is so robust that it will undoubtedly take many more weeks and months before I master it all. Meanwhile I'm up and running and have been creating beautiful images from the day of installation. And even if I'm not using 90% of it yet, what the heck; I'm productive. (And I'm told we don't use about 90% of our brain either.)
Online tutorials and tons of help buttons and tools are always available. In the end, learning Elements is nearly effortless and if you're into photography and editing images, mastering this program is fun.
Happy camper here. I'd recommend the product to any serious amateur or semi-professional photographer who wants access to many--if not most--of the Photoshop tools he/she will ever need. At this price, it's well worth the effort.
