Re: upgrade from Elements 3 to Photoshop Elements

A short summary:

Elements 4 Additions:

Magic Selection Brush
Skin Tone Adjustment Tool
Straighten Tool
Magic Extractor
WYSIWYG Font Menus
Auto Red-eye Removal
DNG Support
Online Printing
Browse Multiple File Types
Find By Metadata
Saved Searches

Plus enhancements to:
Full Screen Custom Slide Show
Advanced Camera RAW
Color Management Options
Advanced Noise Reduction
Quick Fix


Color balance
Channel Mixer
Selective Color

Elements 5 Adobe Additions:
Color Curves (different than Photoshop, better than nothing)
Flexible Layout Options for Scrapping and Presentation
Animate Photos / Flipbooks
Multimedia Support (cell phones) and Image Sharing Options
Interactive Location Maps
Online Backup Services

Plus enhancements to:
RAW File Support

Abandoned: Mac users

Elements 6 Adobe Additions:
Photomerge for better group shots
Enhanced panorama creation capabilities
Animate Photos / Flipbooks
Step-by-steps for image enhancement and creations
Simplified photo book creation
Smart Albums for quicker, easier sorting and locating of images

Reinstated Mac support

Please note that the 'enhancements' are from Adobe -- ad they are tending to repeat items (e.g., this list is shortened but I just noticed Flip Books are in both 5 and 6 release notes...Perhaps because Mac users didn't get them in version 5?)

Again, many of th changes will be performance based, and found in places like the photo browser.
