If you can't afford to pay the full price for Adobe Photoshop, this little program is a great alternative. It offers some sound, fundamental photo editing options, that will satisfy any amateur-level photographer or designer. It does have its limitations, items and tools that you can only get with a full Photoshop program, but for the average user, they won't notice. You can make some stunning visuals, create graphic designs, attach the donkey's head to your boss's photo with ease, and create unique projects to call your own.
The system even comes in three tiers as you learn how to use it -- from templated beginner apps, to full editor mode that lets you freely use the software's array of tools.
It's a great way to own a software editing program without breaking your bank account.

I've used several versions of Elements and they just keep getting better and better - and easier to use. I just wish there wasn't a new one each year which makes it hard to keep up. Fortunately, I buy the Photoshop Elements Classroom in a Book which is quite useful.
This came extremely fast. Good company to deal with. This program is VERY, VERY EASY to use! I was nervous trying something new because it always takes sooooooooo long to learn a new program, but this software has a built-in "Guide" mode to take you through each step. No matter what you're attempting to do, you can do it fast and easy with the guide. I was already editing pictures within minutes after opening the box, without even first reading ANY instructions. Very user-friendly. Now that I've tried it, I'm hooked. I don't want to bother trying anything else. And the long list of special effects is amazing: You can turn a photo into a beautiful sketch, painting, etc. fast and easy. I've tried MANY photo editing software programs, but this is the best and definitely the easiest to use. It also has the most to offer for the price. Yes, I absolutely recommend this to others!
