I have just switched from PC to Mac, and I have been using Elements for years. I love the creative control in slideshows on the PC version, but I was distressed to find that there was NO slideshow option on the Mac version? What the...?

Please, please, please... I love the Mac for my photo management, but I love the slideshow control in Photoshop Elements 9 for PC, please add it to the Mac version.

Photoshop Elements Organizer is new to the Mac platform, with Version 9 being the first to include it. The reason it has been absent for so long is that it depends on a fair number of Windows technologies.

Slideshows are a perfect example. The technology that drives this feature is Windows Media Player. The corresponding technology on the Mac side is Quicktime. Unfortunately, Quicktime doesn't offer the same feature set to allow for the creation of slideshows.

As Organizer matures on the Mac platform, look for additional features as we work toward platform capability parity.
