I have about 2 or 3 kilos of colour, black & white and panoramas (made up by sticking 2 or 3 photos together). My thought was to scan and resize each photo before saving to disk for viewing on my tv and pc. I'm not flushed with money and after completing this project would rarely use the s/ware. What 'Elements' should I buy?

Photoshop Elements is a entry level image editing application, Premiere Elements is an entry level video editing application. Both products have trial downloads available which you should be able to use to download and test the products before purchase. Note that Premiere Elements applies a trial version watermark on output files. Does that answer your question?

Since you are working with large volume of images, Lightroom may also be wise choice. Again, take advantage of the free 30 day trial to see which product is right for you:

Lightroom does an outstanding job of sizing, especially when proper capture sharpening is applied in Develop! Once you build an export template, you can size and export fast and efficiently.

Hi David, Andrew & Jeffery, thanks for your time in replying to my question, from your interest I feel I've already started the project. I will look at the Lightroom and Elements downloads. Does either allow for stitching together panoramas from the loose photos I have..sorry about posing another question. I'm at an age where I expect from new software a sea of new tech jargon and phoops there goes the wife 'are you still at that computer' ha ha but true.

Only Elements (Or Photoshop CS5) will let you stitch together panoramas from multiple files. Lightroom cannot combine images together.
