  • PSP7 and PS Elements

    Is anybody using PSP7 and Photoshop Elements and have enough familiarity to show any advantages one over the other in photo restoration? I am conisdering using Elements because Photoshop itself is better, but dont know how much better Elements would be for this. Any ideas?

    There is plenty of functionality in PSP that is not in Elements. Unfortunately I have lost the message that told what they are, but I believe Curves is one of the features missing. It was plenty enough to make me thankful for PSP.

    PSP is a very robust program for the money. I have not seen any convincing evidence, even from pros, that Photoshop is better for anything.

        The best app for any purpose is the one you feel the most comfortable with. Both of these offer free time-limited trial versions. Play with them both, and let us know what your decision is (and why).

          PSE versus PSP?

          This is a question for Richard Lynch --

          In another thread you mentioned that you have provided support to people who are switching from Paint Shop Pro to Photoshop Elements (plus, of course, Hidden Powers!). I am interested in why people would do that.

          A little background...

          I hadn't heard of this before, and I know many of you own both Elements and Photoshop (plus Elements is so inexpensive this might be worth buying it just for this), so I asked for permission from Daryl Pritchard to repost this.

          For those who don't know, Elements has an excellent panorama...

          PSP X2 Vs. PS Elements 8? Opinions?
          by Dudley
          I hope this subject hasn't been covered yet.

          I'm at a crossroads, in that I have ordered a Dell 17" Laptop, 3GB RAM, 300+GB storage. Shall I buy PSP X2 Ultimate or get PS Elements 8? Previously, on the old tower, I had PSE 4, and a 18' Dell monotor. Any opinions as to which...

          Photoshop from Elements 11
          by Dezzy
          Can someone tell latest version of Photoshop. there are CC versions which I think are cloud use and do they require internet connection. And are CS versions on the computer and don't need internet connections. Or is Elements 11 good enough without upgrading to a full photoshop ???

          I'm an After Effects using that wanted to be able to import PSD files with layers and Elements seems to work well (which is good since I can't afford PhotoShop right now).

          However, I see that when working in Elements, I can't pull guides from the rulers, which is something...
