Adobe Photoshop Elements 11
16 July 2013
Summary: Reviewers note that PSE11 is considerably faster, but the organizer can become cluttered and run slowly with larger photo collections, and the software uses quite a bit of memory. It's not ideal for file management, though there are new tools for auto-tagging and sorting photos according to people, rating, places and events, making your favorite shots much easier to find.
Pros: Suitable for beginners, New guided edits and refine edge tool are great, Fresh look is friendly and appealing
Cons: Facial recognition is inconsistent, Organizer bogs down with large collections, Cannot create your own actions

26 September 2012
Conclusion: Photoshop Elements is a great program for users who’ve progressed beyond iPhoto, and version 11 is the friendliest yet, though the redesign will take veterans time to get used to. The new guided edits are timely and practical, and the Refine Edge dialog enhancements are great for creating tough selections. If you’ve got the money and value your eyesight, Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 is a great upgrade.
Pros: Redesign is friendlier and easier on the eyes, Ability to see folder structure in Organizer, Enhancements to Refine Edge dialog make tough selections possible, new Guided edits are timely and practical
Cons: Events can’t be created when importing photos, Interface redesign may frustrate veteran users
Excerpt: For those who are new to the world of digital imaging, Adobe Photoshop Elements is essentially a watered-down version of the full Photoshop package. It features lots of key features and tools found in the full version, as well as a handful of bespoke features, though it lacks some of the more advanced options like Curves, Color Channels and the Pen tool.
Excerpt: Adobe Photoshop CS6 may have gathered all the attention, but its baby brother Photoshop Elements has been quietly growing up. Now at version 11, it's a mature, sophisticated image editing program that provides 90 per cent of the functionality of the full Photoshop, at a fraction of the cost.
Excerpt: This is Adobe’s annual upgrade of its cut down photo editing program. Changes – for the better – have been made to the user interface. There are still three options for editing – Quick, Guided and Expert – and the Expert layout is now cleaner and a little more like the big Photoshop interface. Quick and Guided are still oriented to the user who wants automation rather than precise control.
