Hello Stunners I have been using a free software to process my pics and I'm very limited. I considering Adobe Photoshop Elements 14. I'm curious to know what others experience is with this software. I see so many amazing shots from members and wonder what they are using.

My copy arrived today, but have not had the chance to use it yet. I will let you know in the next week what I think. Currently im doing my edits with lightroom, It handles the basis edits quite well.

Photos are a moment in time, that can only be captured once.

Cool thanks. I'm interested in your opinion. I currently use Picasa 3 and Pixlr but they're limited in what they cam do

Elements is a lot of the raw photo-editing power of Photoshop without a lot of the more powerful visual effects and 3D stuff. Basically, the stuff you probably wouldn't care about anyway. It's still rather powerful in it's own right and not a bad app.

 

Though if you're considering stepping up to paid, the Photography bundle from Adobe is quite a deal. Given you get Lightroom and Photoshop for around $10/month. I spend more than that on lunch in SF...

No reason to limit yourselves when you can get both LightRoom ( "easy to use" ) and Photoshop ( learn-able, unlimited power ) with $8.99/month.

 

The "Elements" version is as good as most free graphics editing applications on the web.

I'd stay off it.

You want something free and capable ? Use GIMP.
