  • RE: Adobe Photoshop Elements

    Couple years ago I saw this artist in New York profiled on some TV show. He takes photos of famous pictures like Whistler's Mother, takes out the face, and replaces it with his dogs' face. This is what I want to learn how to do with my cat. I know Photoshop CS3 can do this, as he mentioned using it, but after all this time, CS3 is still out of my reach at $900, and I'm tired of waiting for its price to fall. Can Photoshop Elements do what I need done, or some other (reasonably priced) software? I will probably add Linux to my rig soon, and with it GIMP, but I'm wanting an app for my XP Pro.

    I would just use the GIMP (there is a Windows installer) and save the money.

        No, I have given up on Adobe Photoshop. Photoshop CS3 price is still outrageous after all these years, and I am through waiting for it. I am looking for an alternative to it that is a reasonable price, works on XP Pro, and does not require the bloatware .NET Framework.

          Are you in a country with high software pricing? Photoshop itself was never $900 in the US. There are a number of options. You have gimp, pixelmator, krita, and several others that I've forgotten. You could always download CS2 from Adobe. They no longer maintain activation servers for it. You could accomplish the task you mentioned with other software though.

            I'm in USA. Been monitoring prices for Adobe Photoshop CS3 for years now, and $900 for a used copy was the best so far, but no way I'm going to pay the price of a new rig for one software! So enough for Photoshop, I'm looking for alternatives. GIMP is already included in several versions of Linux, plus I hear its real hard to learn, so looking for something else. I will check into Pixelmator & Krita. Any others you can think of, please let me know. Forgot to mention any alternate apps cannot require .NET Framework. So can Photoshop Elements do what I need to do?
