Re: Whats the deference

one is elements and the other is lightroom, hehehe

Just go to Adobe website and read about both, maybe you can find some differences.

Re: Whats the deference

PS elements is a light version of CS4. Does not have all the effects but will get the basic image done.

Lr is and organizer and quick editor for images. It deals with mostly global changes but Lr2 now has basic brushes. Its best at working lots of images.

I personally pre-edit and rank in Lr2, then do any further editing in PS CS4. The choice depends on how much editing you need.

Re: Whats the deference

LR is used primarily by photographers for filing, ranking, and editing their film libraries. Usefull when you have tons of photos to edit under similar lighting conditions etc. It has many of the features of Camera Raw (which comes with PS) for adjusting white balance, color balance etc.

Elements is a short version of Photoshop. It now has a totally different Interface than PS, but does have many editing and masking features. It does not have all the "color spaces" like CMYK etc that professionals may need. It has many simple editing features like red eye reduction, blending etc. as PS.

Much depends on your needs, but for general photo editing, and fun things, I would say Elements would be your best bet.
