This is so much better to use than my earlier version of Elements (V7). Generally I like to do a simple tidy-up of my photographs so the 'Quick - Smart Fix' option in the editor works well for me.
The 'Guided' option gives a lot of potential for playing around with images. I haven't tried the 'Expert' mode yet, but am sure that it will work as well as V7.
The software doesn't come with a 'How To...' manual, and the Getting Started guide is, at best, a bit thin on information. Having said that, the Adobe Web Site Help (accessed from the application) appears to provide really useful information.
All in all a great bundle of software at a very reasonable price.
