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.

has different versions for mac, win or linux.
Download the trial and Tested PS elements 5.0 for a few day already. Pretty impressed. Can consider, where to get OEM one? But my fav functions (history, action, path, mask) is not there

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

Wah lao, didn't know CS is so cold one ah, ask for help only, no body help....
nevermind lor. me gonna buy the box version since $79 and $109 so minor difference as compared to $49 and $109. just take it as pay for the manual. almost the same.
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..
Nikon D200, 18-200VR, 12-24 Tokina, 90mm Tamron Di Macro, 50mm 1.8
