  • Adobe Photoshop 5.0

    I recently acquired a copy of the above which came with a digital camera. Is it a variation on Elements or something different? Its marked Limited Edition so perhaps its a stripped down 'taster' version.

    It's the Elements of it's time Chris. You could get the LE edition for a far reduced price and a far reduced set of tools and such. After 6.0 came out, I never saw Le's mentioned again. Then went right to Elements and Educational Editions.

      LE is supposed to be Photoshop Limited Edition. Elements was supposed to be its replacement. I haven't seen a copy since version 4, so i won't be a lot of help with it...exactly. I mean, the kind of advice I like to give is the timeless stuff that works with any version of Photoshop...But often the tools have moved, look different, or are somehow changed. As far as that rule goes, a lot of what gets discussed here should apply...but i have never tested my tools in LE.

      LE was given away free with a lot of stuff (for example, there was a time where you could buy a $49 copy of PageMaker and get a license to LE). Elements has pretty much taken over that roll as well, being the free program that comes with some equipment (scanners and digital cameras).

      As far as i am aware, LE is not a current product -- though it may still be being distributed as a freebee. If you contact me directly, we could run a few tests to see just how closely related these programs are and how compatible this forum will be to your needs.

        Thanks both for the information, I run PS 7 so I'll probably pass this version onto somebody.

          PS 5.0LE

          Chris, I also have a copy of 5.0Le that I find is as useful, if not more so, then Elements. Being the tightwad I am, (since I do this for fun) the free stuff seems to work just fine and I think it would be a great gift for someone just learning about Photo Editing.

            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...

            I have Photoshop Elements, but I'm not sure what I'm lacking from the full version of Photoshop. A lot of the people on this board use a whole bunch of editing styles (I've seen the word 'curve' used before), and I don't know what to do.

            Have I missed a major tutorial? I feel so lost...

            Backward Compatibility Question
            by buz
            Just wondering why HPPE isn't backward/forward compatible. I was ok with PSE2 and HPPE2 (and maybe should downgrade) but moving to PSE3, it's frustrating that my HPPE2 book, cd and tools are no longer useable.

            My understanding is that I must also get HPPE3, for the tools I already have...

            Upgrade from Elements to Photoshop
            by Doug Nelson
            It says it's a Microtek deal, but I hear you can actually use any registered Elements serial number.

            Photoshop Elements 3 or wait for Photoshop CS/2
            by winwintoo
            Since I upgraded my Macs to OS X, and couldn't run Photoshop 6 natively anymore, I switched to Photoshop Elements 2 and did quite well with it for hobby stuff, but I'm itching to get Photoshop again and I'm wondering if I should wait until spring when rumors say the next version will be out.
