4.0 out of 5 stars It's an Excellent Software for the Price, October 5, 2011
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 [OLD VERSION] (Software)
I am a user of Photoshop Elements. I downgraded from Photoshop CS(x) as I no longer needed such a powerful program. Adobe Elements offers all of the features that most home users want or need. I have given it four stars instead of five because I think the Help component is lacking.

As to the other reviewer who gave this program 1 star, I have to point out that Adobe Photoshop Elements is NOT movie editing software. It is photo editing software. Perhaps she was referring to Adobe Premiere Elements, which is a movie editing software application.

IS this upgrade better than Elements 8? I mean with a few difference or many upgrades??

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 7, 2011 10:01:41 AM PDT
I can't say. I was using Photoshop CS and then recently converted to Elements when I realized I no longer needed the bigger program.

Glad I read your review! I was concerned when I saw the low rating but obviously the other person is not even reviewing the correct product.... oh dear.

My version is so old this is a major upgrade for me. I'd still use it but the new Mac OS Lion is not compatible with it. Thanks for the review....the other one star review should be removed.

Yes, I agree. The one star review is distorting the customer satisfaction ratings.

Do you miss anything from Photoshop CS? I have Photoshop CS and I am thinking of getting Elements 10 since I cannot qualify for a CS upgrade anymore.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 12, 2011 9:10:25 PM PDT
That was my reason for getting Elements as well. So far, I have discovered that you cannot put text on a path in Elements the way you could in CS -- but I seldom did that anyway.

I'm planning to get this as it's much cheaper than Photoshop CS. The primary difference a professional photographer told me was the convenience of working with RAW format files (DSLR photography). He told me it's a minor step to convert to TIFF and then work on it in Elements.
That being said there are a couple of differences and workarounds listed here:

For the most part I'm an amateur/hobbiest photographer so I cannot justify Photoshop CS much like I cannot justify a full-frame DSLR. ^_^

Hello June,

Actually, putting text on a path is one of the new features of Photoshop Elements 10. Check out this link for more info: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/photoshopelements/using/WS5b9a9ff298eb77cc-1da27bd8130558d3d3c-7ffe.html

Hello Rabbit,

Photoshop Elements works with the Camera Raw. It supports the same number of cameras but it has fewer tools to work with these files. For a look at what is different, check out this link: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/864/cpsid_86457.html
