I confess I used to have a pirate copy of PS6 some time ago and used it extensively, although only for photo enhancement. I bought a new laptop and got a legit PS Elements 4 and to be honest for what I was using it for there was little difference - indeed there are workarounds for the lack of masks in elements anyway. If you're happy with PS6 then stick with it.

Elements 5 and 6 both have RAW Converters, whereas Photoshop 6 won't have. I find the RAW converter in Elements 5 invaluable. - but you might not take pictures in RAW and don't need it anyway. However, Photoshop 6 will have the Pen tool, Masks and Curves, which Elements doesn't have. I find the Pen Tool and Curves very difficult to use. Instead I use the Polygonal Lasso Tool instead of the Pen Tool and use Levels instead of curves. I can never see the difference!! You can create a Mask in Elemenets, by opening the Levels or Hue/Sat adjustment layer and closing it down without doing anything. This leaves a Mask that you can work on.
