PhotoShop Elements 6.0 Best Bet

When you mention Photoshop, almost everyone recognizes that name and knows what the application is all about.

Photoshop has been around for a very long time and over the years, many professionals have made their livelihood from it. It's a graphics and photo manipulation software product with an unbelievable array of tools and capabilities.

The commercial version is so fully packed with tools that even seasoned professionals will admit that they may only be using a very small portion of what's there. So for someone like us, where we only need to tweak a photo or maybe touchup a red eye or apply a simple effect, the big version is certainly overkill - not to mention way too expensive.

In walks PhotoShop Elements - a very inexpensive subset of its big brother. Still plenty of capability, but without the big price tag and huge learning curve. Well, almost.

Even learning how to use PS Elements can be a daunting task. This tool can do so many things that it does take a lot to learn how to use it, but well worth the effort for those people wanting to make some pretty slick compositions.

I learn best by watching. Because this is such a mainstream product, a lot of people have put together tutorials. Despite the learning curve, there are tons of video tutorials available both on the Adobe site and at other places like Youtube. Watch a video or two and all of a sudden the tools provided in PS Elements seem easy to use.

If your need to manipulate photos goes beyond the realm of iPhoto, you might want to consider picking up a copy of Elements.
