Summary: I like the Photoshop Elements. I first began using on Version 8 and just recently upgraded to Version 11. Some of the features do not run the same and I still have not figured out some of the new ways to do things. Overall I think that it is a good program.
Summary: I purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements version 11 a few months ago and I am having a hard time sorting my pictures. The instructions are not clear and the look up in the help file are not distinct. Having had a Photoshop program before this is way more complicated and frustrating.
Summary: The problem with this program, is that after you install it, there is some part of elements running which one would not know, I stumbled across this problem, and then you have to find how to shut it off. It slows your computer down.
Summary: Photoshop and Premiere Elements are good programs but why do I have the feeling that I am being taken to the cleaner by Adobe? Maybe because they keep selling me a new version every year (I have had all of them since version 1) while making very minor changes.
