    Can I do curves, level, auto level, colour, contrast? Is there Layers, Channel, Paths, Colour Balance.

    How close is it to PS?
    You can download the trial from adobe website.
    http://www.adobe.com/downloads/

    There are layers but no channels, no paths, no curves. Colour balance, Levels, Shadows/Highlights, Auto levels, Auto colour, healing brush, spot healing brush, clone tool are all available.

    Here's a comparison.

    I tried PSE4 and I don't like it.. too slow and don't have the features I want. PSE5 is finally what I could accept, especially at the OEM price. It has what I need and I don't pay more for what I don't really require. Otherwise I would have still be using GIMP which is free, but workflow for GIMP is slightly slower and the JPEG compression isn't as good. The windows for GIMP is also messy.

    I would like to know too.. But I don't think Elements qualify as a basis for upgrade to CS3, what more do you expect of an OEM version. Any Adobe sales people here?

    There is a plugin for GIMP that makes it appear almost identical to Photoshop.
    just install that to your GIMP and you get a photoshop lookalike (and perform almost alike too)

    Get Lightroom, I find it more powerful in terms of management and editing compared to Elements...

    Confirm got history. I think mask can be achieved with layers. Hmm... action... need to check.. Confirm no path.

    Challenger at IMM. $49 member price. Few copies left.

    (pardon the lousy image.. shot with N70..)

    elements is the easiest software to use. if you're lazy to edit, there's a function that "auto fixes everything , from brightness to colour"

    lesser things in the elements. its meant to be that way to cut cost, and also be very basic.

    ive got elements 2.0 and when im lazy, i just use the elements to auto fix my pics rather than i do it slowly

    Yes Windows XP. Patches are available at the adobe website for Windows Vista. Mac version is available only upto Elements 4.0

    By the way, if anyone wants to buy the elements 5.0 from Challenger @ the members' price, you can let me know. We may be able to find a time slot to hit one of the challenger shops, together...

    I bought mine, yesterday..

    Cheers
