That said, for most elementary tasks the software is straightforward enough, and it makes a doddle of jobs such as red-eye correction, image rotation, cropping, and sharpening. Side-by-side "before and after" images greatly simplify the task of applying changes in lighting and colour. Entering text on the image is remarkably easy in comparison with Paint Shop Pro, and the clone stamp tool seems a lot more effective in Photoshop Elements than in other photo manipulation programmes that I have tried. Photoshop Elements allows the user to quickly magnify the image almost to individual pixel level, and this allows images to be altered with as much subtlety as the user desires. There is a huge Adobe user's guide available as a downloadable PDF file, and there are plenty of tutorials available free of charge on the Internet.
I found Photoshop Elements easy to install on my very basic Asus Barebones desktop computer. It opens up quickly, runs smoothly, and doesn't seem to have had the slightest effect on the computer's speed or efficiency. One is frequently aware of the programme's very considerable hidden potential, lying just below the surface. With the assistance of tutorials, I have already enjoyed exploring some of this potential, and I look forward, when time permits, to further experimentation. In short, amazingly good value for the price, and highly recommended.
My daughter wanted to do some basic manipulation of images, but CS4 is a really steep learning curve, not suitable at all.
I got Elements 7 for her as the simpler interface and helpful starter screens direct users to the section they need; with hand-holding for usage once there.
I tried it and found that by going straight into the program, its still had the really powerful tools that Photoshop has, just not all the advanced and extra tools - which were of no interest to most users anyhow!
Installation was painless, the program is very able in setting itself up and runs well on a medium powered machine, no hassles.
Compared with the competition at this level, Photoplus and Paint shop pro
It far exceeds the capabilities of the first and is far less crash prone than the (at times) painful paint shop, which I used for 10 years until it got bloated and unreliable.
So far my daughter has had no problems using Elements, its intuitive and simply to use for most effects and she loves the extra levels of 'undo' and 'effect previews' - always a good thing when experimenting.
Amazon reduced the price dramatically-prompting me to buy it immediately;
well worth the investment and I'd say good for starters, intermediates and experienced users that don't want to pay hundreds more (literally) for the full blown Photoshop.
Version 6 introduced the grey/black interface - making screen shots for tutorial materials very difficult to print and often difficult to read. This is continued in v7 and I wish they would give a retro option to revert to a white background.
Also for some strange reason the use of the zoom via a mouse wheel is not default and has to switched on in Options - rather strange.
Of course it is still good value - but not if you have Version 6 - or even version 5. It might be worth looking for an earlier version second hand than going for this release.
