Used Photoshop Elements 2, 4, 6, and 8 and have been holding there although the temptation to try PE 2018 is pretty strong. Wondering if there will be an enormous learning curve. There's been a lot of firsts for me lately. Purchased a Canon 100-400mm lens for my wildlife photopraphy and recent trip to Alaska. Started my own web site with a dot com url with the intention of selling prints some day soon. I've been playing with adobe's lightroom and photoshop on a monthly basis and haven't been all that enamored as I thought I'd be. I dabble in the Linux operating system and found darktable, which surprisingly enough, is also available for Windoze and Mac in open source. I think I can probably learn to use that for my initial RAW workflow and then finish up in PE.
Found this site while purging some old passwords from no-longer-working web sites when I can across the free archived copies of Photoshop Elements User Mag from 2004 to 2016 at completedigitalphotography.com/pet/.
There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described. I photograph to see what something will look like photographed. ~garry_winogrand~
Did you know that if you are part of a non profit group you can get Photoshop elements for a very small fee. I received PSE 18 plus the video for only $27. Tec Soup is the name of the program that has a list of company's willing to donate software, hardware and more. Just google TecSoup.
