"Worst software I have ever downloaded"

August 20, 2011  |  By aishetudozie

 |  Version: Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0.3

Pros

Nothing whatsoever

Cons

Not user friendly. Adobe website is useless in providing assistance. Not intuitive in anyway. I've had it for a month and haven't been able to use it in a decent manner. I want a refund.

Summary

Don't waste your cash. It's awful and Adobe will never give you any support.

"Great for the price"

April 29, 2011  |  By wardie3

 |  Version: Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0.3

Pros

has layer masks now- YES!

Cons

too "user friendly"- would prefer interface to be more photoshop-like

Summary

Elements served me well until I could migrate to Photoshop, which of course is far more powerful.

"This is not the Latest Version"

April 23, 2011  |  By KardasFox

 |  Version: Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0

Pros

Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 is PowerPC native and a used copy can be purchased for around $20.

Cons

Cnet hosts a page advertising the trial version of Elements 3, but only provides download links to an update for Elements 9, meaning I can't evaluate Elements 3 before buying.

Summary

Dear download.cnet.com,

It's so helpful of you to inform me that Adobe Photoshop Elements 3 isn't the current version of Elements, because without your help I never would have known about Elements 9. It's completely out of the question that I'd know Elements 9 only supports Intel chipsets and thus won't run on my old fashioned PowerPC, since I've never heard of it. In fact, you were so determined to be helpful in my endeavor to download a the free trial version of Elements 3 hosted on your site that you replaced the download link for the Elements 3 trial with a download of an Elements 9 update.

This, of course, made it quite impossible for me to download Elements 3 from your site; one of the few sites that doesn't simply link to the developer page. (Adobe, of course, fails to acknowledge any version older than Elements 9.) If I could run Elements 9, I would have downloaded the trial from Adobe with no reason to even visit your site. I didn't waste hours of my time that could have been spent working on commissions searching for a valid download link of Elements 2 or 3 because I think they're recent, it's because I want to try them out before I invest in a used copy.

While other sites merely inform me that their download link, which led to Adobe's download link, is no longer valid; you got my hopes up by pretending to host the trial, insulted my intelligence by providing a download link to Elements 9.0.3, and aroused my ire by providing no download link to Elements 3 (as was promised.) Here's hoping that your employees, their immediate family members, and all of said family members' closest friends choke to death on giant, syphilitic *******.

Sincerely,
Kardas W. Fox

"Great package for doing moderate image edits."

February 20, 2011  |  By ggoede1

 |  Version: Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0.2

Pros

Easy to use. The tools are intuitive. For the price of about $100 most people will find it just right for the price/performance.

Cons

You might like to view tutorials on YouTube or buy a book. I'd view the tutorials first. You will discover that Photoshop Elements to be more intuitive than you think.

Summary

If you are an amateur photographer and want to get to the next level this is the gateway. Later on, as you gain experience in digital photography, you may with to graduate to the more advanced Adobe products.

"the Best and the easiest"

February 05, 2011  |  By zee10

 |  Version: Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0.2

Pros

everything is logically designed for simple and easy use. The most efficient tools (for photographers and hobbyists):
1. shadows/light
2. enhance
3. unsharp and various options

these three tools are the best.

Cons

Nothing special

Summary

tried all of the popular titles, and didn't like. Pixelmator comes close, but....but....

"Intel-only software"

February 27, 2010  |  By pcj46

 |  Version: Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0

Pros

Unable to evaluate.

Cons

Unable to use on my PPC G4 laptop. Staying with PE6.

Summary

Read the System Requirements carefully. This was my first experience with an upgrade of a major application that wasn't backwards compatible.

"Good product but not intuitive"

January 17, 2010  |  By ronck

 |  Version: Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0

Pros

There is a lot of power under the hood with good quality

Cons

It seems that most actions need too many clicks; the obvious is not the best; integration with aperture or iphoto is not findable.

Summary

It may well be the must-have for photo editing, but it could be more user friendly, look and act more like most mac software and be more cooperative with places where I want to work with.
The time invested in getting to know the program is usually translated into good results, but for the occasional user it is complex to remember where and how things best can be done and it seems that after every holiday the learning curve starts again.
However, it is a recommender. The programs works, the results are good and for the price it is hard to find a better photo editor.
It is nice to be able to work towards different purposes from the same original: i.e. copies for print, or (safe for) web or otherwise, but they are not kept in a library and one must organize the output outside Photoshop Elements.
The 30 day trial option is a good way to see if you can get to grips with all the power and the complexities. My guess is that most will see more benefits than obstacles and dash out the reasonable amount for the purchase.

"Far too complex for the average casual user's needs,"

April 16, 2009  |  By ciggieoxo

 |  Version: Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0

Pros

Less complex than Photoshop.

Cons

too arcane. too hard to learn. the only thing it does easily are distortions and tricks but then lots of other image editors do that at a lower price. Elements is $99, Acorn easier and only $49.

Summary

If you jare going to be working on graphics consistently then it is worth the time to learn but it is too complex for occasional jobs.

"Perfect for my needs"

February 25, 2009  |  By dahlen

 |  Version: Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0

Pros

Ease of use
Breadth of capabilties
Integration with iPhoto

Cons

Lack of price integrity/having to hunt around to find the best deal.

Summary

I tried a lot of the other free-to-modestly priced digital editors - GIMP, Pixelmator, etc. - and all of them, while good, had various challenges, many of which involved ease of use issues. While the list price for Photoshop Elements is higher than all these other ones, you can almost certainly get it for a lot less (probably less than $60 - I got mine for about $35 after a $20 upgrade rebate). Photoshop does more than all these other programs with a better interface, much greater ease of use and great integration with iPhoto.
