Default A Photoshop question...

I just have a simple question. What's the difference between Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.

Basically Photoshop Elemets is a digital photo editing package.
You can enhance your photos, add some effects. You can import media from digital cameras, scanners etc.

It lacks a lot of features Photoshop has. Also Photoshop does not have all features Photoshop Elemets does (especially the ones that have to do with photo enhancing)

I would call Photoshop Elements "Photoshop LE." In the latest review of the software from Maximum PC, for most users, PE is more than adequate. It's like 80-85% of full-blown Photoshop at 1/6 the price.

If you're a designer/professional you would be best served with the full version, but if you're the everyday user, Elements will suit your needs just fine without the hit to the pocketbook.

But PS7 is just so damn sexy!

I dunno, I've always used PS since 3.0, and I'm just used to it. I didn't like PE the couple times that I've used it (for whatever reason, it used to not have multiple undo--I mean, Holy Jeebus)... but I think that was back when it actually WAS Photoshop LE.

It's Photoshop @ $99, most of the stuff they left out you won't really use anyway.
