  • Upgrade from Elements to Photoshop

    It says it's a Microtek deal, but I hear you can actually use any registered Elements serial number.

    YES YES YES!!!

    It works. Just scored PS7 for $300! I bought Elements several months ago at Costco ($30 after all the rebates were done). The Elements serial# went right through at the above link. I was still skeptical so I called Adobe cust. support and told them I was not a Microtek customer. They said all good!

    Peace and good edits,

      The Photoshop CS version of this deal has been posted at

      Worth a try if you already own Elements.

        Grrr <rant on>"Offer valid in the U.S. and Canada only." Why are these things always valid in the US and Canada only? Well, actually I can understand why each individual offer is valid in the US and Canada only, so I suppose my question is WHY DO WE NEVER GET EQUIVALENT OFFERS IN THE REST OF THE WORLD???<rant off>

        OK, I feel better now...

          Well, the most obvious answer is because that link is from the US/Canadian website. But that doesn't find an equivalent one on for you. That will be up to you (make sure you report back)

            Ohhh dearie me no . The UK site only appears to recognise the existence of the Acrobat family of products and certainly doesn't contain anything so vulgar as special offers (I did check that before going into rant mode). Like I said, I can see why each individual offer is US and Canada specific, but not why we never get them too.

              I suspect a worldwide marketing conspiracy. I checked on the European Microtek site, as well, and they offer no promotions of any sort, either.

              Maybe you just need 300 million more people

                Maybe I could just try running around very fast and hoping I look like 300 million extra people...

                    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 ???

                    by MartyA

                    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...

                    Using Elements stitcher in PS
                    by Doug Nelson
                    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...

                    upgrade from Elements 3 to Photoshop Elements 6?
                    by martijn
                    Hi all,

                    I have been using PSE 3 with the Hidden Powertools (and the excellent book) for quite some time now, but I am wondering whether it would be worth it to upgrade to PSE 6.

                    My main interest would be the more advanced editing functions, and as most improvements in the...

                    Elements 2.0
                    by den4ever
                    I know its old but until today it has served me well. I am getting the following message:-

                    An unexpected & unrecoverable problem has occurred because of a program error. Photoshop will now exit.

                    I have tried reinstalling & rebooting but still get the same response....
