About to upgrade to CS....what are the top 5...

...things I have to look forward to, coming from little ol' Elements? I do have several plug-ins installed in my Elements that have allowed me to use masks, curves and channels...so besides those things, what thrilling things await me in CS? I can't wait!!

It will be like going from a VW to a Corvette!

Layers, Masks, Channels, Liquify Tool, Healing Brush, Extract Tool, Adjustment Layers, Vanishing Point, Smart Sharpen, RAW capabilities, and much much more.

ajava,

i'm using elements 4...well, learning. what are those plugins you have for elements that allow those things and where do i get them?

and, one of the things i was hoping to get with elements was working in other colorspaces, especially cmyk since i want more exact printing, but i couldnt find anything on it. so, cmyk, lab, hsl and all those colorspaces are going to open up to you in cs.

I'm guessing that around August, the new model of Corvette will be available. I'm waiting to see what's on the dashboard of that one!

Plug-ins...

Hey Craig,
I have several that I've found by doing google searches on Photoshop plugins. Some were free, others...not so free. Richard Lynch has a book on just Elements that comes with software that includes layer masks, color/channel separation actions, etc. Good stuff but I found most of it is kind of "rigged" and can be confusing to use.
My favorite plugins are CurveMeister, ColorWasher and Noise Ninja. I can't remember the other ones just now.
