I think that you have to buy the 2018 version. There is a small discount if you are upgrading

I believe this is correct. Upgrade for discount. Although I read the reviews and it got high ratings I'd hold off. I've had mine about 2 weeks and have had some difficulties.

Yes, the upgrade is a special price for registered Elements users.
The usual advice is to shop around since you can find best deals online with big vendors.

- I highly recommend downloading the trial version (full features for 30 days) and to buy it if it suits you. No need to install twice, just enter the license key you get for your purchase.

- Use the Elements user to user forum for help or comments.

Here's two more cents than what's said above.  You should run all of them side by side, that way you'll have more tools to use.   I have a lot of versions of PSE, full Photoshop's and Light Room, and, I still have PSE 3 from yesteryear, and all of their tools com in handy.   Plus, a full Photoshop has plugins and RAW conversions but PSE doesn't.   PSE is easier to use in expert-mode, a full Photoshop can be a little slower to use.   Light Room has 'mini-levels' of lighting (in-between levels of lighting compared to the levels in PSE).    Having ALL of the tools I need, I am fully equipped.  My customers have photos from yesteryear and we want to have all the tools we can get.   This way I won't say,  "I wish I had a tool for that". 

They can run together but launch the older versions first, and recent versions last.   In the RAM, the older versions are not as bulky, and they make room for the newer versions.
