Great little bundle.
Im new to photography and thought Id give this a go along with some other Photoshop software that id been given.
Its a good system ,lots of tricks and help with your photos.

Some bits are tough to work or figure out, otherwise its a handy piece of kit.

For me, I dont liek to Dr my photos too much else it takes the skill out of photo taking if you can alter everything you do, I prefer to take my time and take the photo I want. Yes, I need to touch up the odd picture, where Ive got things wrong but in general Id like to learn to take the photos correctly and to the best of my ability, rathe rthan take an average photo and alter it.

However for those who prefer the latter or want to experiment with what you can do, then this, along with other photoshop software should do all you need,

Version 12 of this very popular photo editing software comes with two disks, one for windows based pc's the other for mac pc's. This update has a user interface which is slightly different to the previous version and the controls and feature effects now have a much quicker way of previewing the effects on screen before you apply them. The program interface at first looks very dumbed down and aimed at very new users to photo editing but regular users will quickly be back to finding that you can use the program with the short cuts of previous versions. If you are purchasing for the first time it probably makes sense to get this version, whether the new interface adds any extra functionality for version 11 users is really a matter of personal choice. It would be wise to use the features compare option on the Adobe website to make your final choice.

This is the fourth version of this product that I have bought for my iMac and the new features continue to bring interest to the system. It does not rate five stars merely because the group photo merge is not nearly as flexible as one would like. For instance, adding a figure to the group requires the source to be of very similar size to the target photograph and the ability to move that figure is somewhat limited by the clumsy 3-point alignment system.

I have used previous versions of Elements without any problems and have a copy of Lightroom 5 running on my PC. I decided to upgrade to Elements 12 as I have just started a photography course. I managed to install the software from the DVD and activate the product, or so I thought!!

I am able to access and use the Elements Organizer but every time I try to access the photo editor I get a window telling me to sign in to my Adobe account to activate the software. The serial number shows on my account but the software just will not run past this sign in to activate window.

I have now spent 3 sessions on the Adobe customer help chat service and got absolutely nowhere. So basically this software is completely useless to me and will very shortly be returned to Amazon for a full refund.

As for Adobe Customer Care.....ABSOLUTELY USELESS!!!!! Don't buy this useless piece of junk.

UPDATE: I have now returned this product to Amazon who have promptly refunded my money, thank you Amazon. As for ADOBE, the technical support is useless and this software, or at least the activation system, is defective. I have since purchased Paint Shop Pro x6 and am very impressed with it. It does everything Elements does and more. It's also very user friendly. My advice is forget Elements 12 and forget ADOBE until they start to appreciate their customers and sort out their software. As for me I'm now very firmly a Paint Shop Pro man.

As a matter of interest, another piece of software worth a look at is The Gimp 2.8 This is a very powerful image editor and is free of charge, being freeware. It is just as powerful as Photoshop and although there is a steep learning curve, there are a number of excellent books available on Amazon to help. The Gimp 2.8 is available to download from the internet.
