Cool Photoshop Elements Plugin that adds Photoshop Features

I generally like the plugins from The Plugin Site, and use them in Photoshop CS6.
I remember a number of people on this forum looking for less expensive photo editing options. The features of Photoshop Elements are a bit limiting to me, but I think this new plugin called "Elements XXL" is a cool idea. If anyone here has Photoshop Elements, I am curious what they think of this plugin: The Plugin Site - Elements XXL

Worth the $40 to get these additional significant features for Elements. I have Elements 11 and it installed with no problems. Very nice that all the features are integrated into Elements menu system.
"The Plugin Site" does a nice job describing the product.The compatibility chart shows which features are active/apply for different versions of Elements. Thanks for the link. Useful & affordable.

This is really tempting me to do get the Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere 11 package - I have CS4 but don't use it much can't really justify CS 6 and 7 is around the corner. From all accounts Elements 11 will do more than I ever need to do. I already have Lightroom which is 90%+ of my edits anyway as well as the NIK package and some Topaz plugins all of which will work with both Lightroom and Elements. I also have Paint Shop Pro X5 but not feeling the love with that package. I have it all in my 'cart' just need to push the purchase button ha!

you could also look at As Simple As Photoshop: Video Books for Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro, and Flash there is free working demo version which has some handy features to try.
the full version list is large and it is cheap, you need to scroll down the home page or jump to Buy full version of Elements+ find your version of elements then click on more info to see what is unlocked

I installed XXL this weekend on PSE6. It seems to do as advertised- i already used the grouping feature while working on some graphics for my wife. I haven't done a full comparison with Elelments+ yet, but the feature lists look similar (not surprising since they are both leveraging the hooks that Adobe left in place). Pricing is a little different as XXL you buy once, and + for each version, with XXL having the larger price.
