Photshop Elements- I have been using Elements since it was just Photoshop Elements period. It wa functioanl and did what I wanted. Mostly processing pictures for Ebay listings and family stuff. The I kepy getting bugged to upgrade, which I don't like. So I upgraded to Elements 7. I tried it a bit but they changed the whole interface and look and feel which I didn't like. I finally discovered a few featurea I did like. One was processing multiple images. Ths speed up my Ebay picture processing tremendously. Then they came alomg with Elements 9-did not like it at all. They moved tings aroound and changed the interface again, it did not react the same, pictures did not go to the bin when minimized and I had a hard time finding my old commands and tools. What good does an up grade do if you have to waste time learning to use the program again. The I tried Elements 11. Sane thing, changed the interface, moved stuff around, pictures didn't go to the bin again. The only feature that I thought was good was when you actived a tool like cloning and you ran it over the spot you wanted to fix it showed the change at the cursor position, that was good. Anyway, change is not always good. For ease of use you need to keep the feel and use the same as the previous version. I am now back to using Elements 7 which works just fine for me. Another thing I really abhor the pop up when Elements 7 starts that keeps bugging me to upgrade-I don't want to upgrade and want the pop up to stop!!!!
