PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS?

Hi folks.

I'm a newbie (joined yesterday), so forgive me if there is a few rather 'obvious' posts from me just now! Anyway, the only image processing software I use just at the moment is Photoscape (feee download), as I've only just entered the world of DSLR photography. 

Adobe Photoshop seems to be the tool of choice for most, and as I'm (extremely) amateur and won't be wanting serious pro-spec applications, I'm thinking of putting Elements 8 on my Christmas present list. Do you think Elements 8 is the one to go for?

Thanks in anticipation.

Tom

 Download a trial of it from their site, use it to pieces in the trial period, then you'll know if it does what you need.

Personally I'm still on PS Elements 4 but then I'll upgrade eventually but it does what I need, and combined with the adobe raw to PS program I'm just about sorted ;)

Thanks, Pipesmoker - I didn't know a trial download was available.

Cheers.

 Elements 8. I use Elements 6 on a Mac. Best bang for the bucks on a computer. If you do get it, go to a decent book store Waterstones or Borders, and get a book on how it works. It will enhance your experience no end.

Hi Tom,...Welcome. lots of good folk ready to help.

As you are new to photo manipulation, any version of elements, but preferably 8 is your best bet until you gain skills.  Version 8 is the latest and is highly recommended.

Also, here is a web site that will answer questions for any version.  Enjoy.

 I was a novice and cut my teeth on Elements 6. Bought a book (brilliant - Photoshop Elements 6) but found it difficult to follow until I gained experience. Found the mag the best way to dip my toe into Elements. I've just gone for 8 on a Mac.
