Conclusion: I have used this product for Windows for a couple of years. I have made the jump to Mac and used the affordable options provided by Apple but they dont compare to Adobe's offering. This product is easy to use and is packed full of advanced features. Very affordable too!
Conclusion: If you enjoy editing pictures then Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 is a great tool. If you enjoy video editing then Adobe Premiere Elements 9 is very good. Being able to purchase them both at a discount is fantastic!
Conclusion: I was upgrading from PSE7, most of the new features are very nice improvement, my wife an I have really enjoyed working with PSE to help manage and organize our photos, we've used this product since version 4.
Conclusion: Photoshop Elements 9 does have some very useful photo editing tools. However, I am very disappointed that Elements does NOT offer the same typographic control offered in older versions of Photoshop. There is no ability to kern type, or even control general letter, line and word spacing. This is a very sad omission. There is enough poorly done type in the world, and by leaving these features out, Adobe is adding to the problem.
Conclusion: Photoshop Elements continues to be the best photo editing tool for casual Mac user. The new content-aware healing tool works great as does the photo-merge that allows quick elimination of subjects in original shots. The guided edits and new layouts are convenient for those who want a quality product without spending hours manipulating files. As expected, the service was quick and efficient -- and much appreciated.
Conclusion: WOW! This isn't your fathers Photoshop Elements! It is much more powerful than I remember it from several years ago. It is easier to use and will do much more. The organizer is especially useful.
Conclusion: This is a pretty good follow up to previous versions of the Elements. It seems that some easy functions I use to use at not quite evident. I need to do some more exploring. Overall, it's still the best photo editing program on the market.
Conclusion: Arrived super fast in standard shipping. Some new features from 8 but still playing with it. Heard great things about Content Aware but it does not do the trick every time. Not sure if the upgrade from 8 was really worth the $.
