Hello Adam,

Thanks very much for the heads up. I have numerous ratings and reviews regarding this product and they range from 1/2 star to 4 stars. I find it impossible to comprehend how the same product in different hands can earn so many mixed reviews. If you have experience with this software, I would very much appreciate your comments.

Many thanks,

Antonio

Photoshop elements is your basic image editor. It can do a lot of what the full version of photoshop can, but it doesn't have the workflow tools that Lightroom comes with, hence the low price.

I think that software reviews vary greatly because some people simply don't know how to use photoshop.

This is a nice software.
Basically PS lite.

In fact, not so light as it has most of the features a photographer will need.
Unless one does a lot of photo manipulation.

The other thing to check is whether it now supports 16bit editing.
If you are into such stuff.

I was on PSE9 before changing to CC

Thank you for response. Now I need to ask you to forgive my ignorance, but what exactly are workflow tools?

Rgrds,

Antonio

From wikiversity:

QuoteQuote:
"Digital Workflow" is the process by which photographs are taken, downloaded, identified (see also DAM), edited, delivered, printed, backed up and stored. This can consist of any number of software programs such as the computer operating systems connectivity functions, the software shipped with the camera from the manufacture such as Canon's "Digital Photo Professional" to "Digital Darkrooms" like "Aperture" (Apple), Photoshop (Adobe), GIMP (open source) or "Lightroom" (Adobe). There are many other less common programs that perform both general photo editing and very specific editing tasks such as sharpening, adding filters, or enlargement. Digital workflows allow photographers to shoot in RAW,and process their pictures exactly as needed.

Thanks again. Do you happen to have experience or knowledge regarding Lightroom 6, the stand alone? I see this one received many glowing reviews.

Lightroom is pretty popular, yeah. LR CC has a few more minor features than LR 6, but for the most part they're the same thing. You can download a trial from Adobe to take it for a spin. Lightroom is popular for being a "non destructive" photo editor, meaning that it saves your edits separately rather than altering your original files. You can then export edited files however you want.

I see what you are saying. I had been using FastStones Photo Resizer, and I resized once too often and my images were completely destroyed. Lesson learned.

Thanks again for your assistance. I have also heard that Lightroom 5 is pretty much the same a LR 6, and perhaps could find it somewhere for around $50.00USD.

Adios,

Antonio

I have been using Photoshop Elements since version 5 came out and am now using Version 13. I find it isn't destructive at all. I can save my finished edits as .jpg and keep my .DNG file intact. It is better than FastStone as it has most everything PhotoShop has, and I dislike that somethings in LR can't be done. I tried LR, didn't like it, went back to Elements. Just my two cents!

Btw, the first offer from B&H is still available but only as a DVD version. I just ordered mine. I got if for $57 and some change because when I bought my new K-50, I got a e gift card from B&H and used that to get monies off the Photoshop Elements 14. Yippee!!
