Editors' Review

+

With an impressive collection of flexible tools, Adobe Photoshop Elements is one of the most powerful consumer-level photo editors around. Batch processing, image layering, cloning, and Web optimization are just a few of the software's time-saving tools.

It's taken a while for Elements to crawl out from the shadow of its celebrity sibling, Photoshop, but these days you'd be hard-pressed to find similarities between the two. There's the occasional familiar dialog box and a handful of traditional Photoshop interface quirks that may elude newbies, but if Photoshop CS is the "pro" version, Elements is for the average consumer.

Overall, there seems to be more and better creative content in Elements 5, and it's generally easier to use than its predecessor. The organizer and photo downloader have buckets of new features, including useful tweaks to stacking, map integration, and more. However, the imaging tools aren't keeping pace. The new additions--black-and-white conversion, curve-based correction, distortion correction, and a different take on sharpening--offer little more than new interfaces for old problems.

The tutorials and help tools do a great job of demystifying the labyrinthine interface, but if you're looking for a basic tool for common graphic tasks there are plenty of lower-priced options that are much easier to master. Photoshop Elements is definitely worth a look, though, if you're looking for a significant boost in creativity and productivity.

""Excellent""

March 23, 2009  |  By minasnik

 |  Version: Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0

Pros

It took me awhile to figure out (I read lots of online tutorials), but once I got the hang of it I couldn't go back to using any other program!

Cons

PSE 5 is ideally for a 1024x768 screen. I have an older XP with 800x600, so the work-space is a bit crowded. Other than that, I love it.
