im using photoshop 7.0... was thinking whether to upgrade to element 5.0???
for those pros out there... is there any major diff btw the 2???
which is better... Photoshop 7.0 or Photoshop Element 5.0???
you can just download a trial copy from adobe first to try it out and then head out to buy it if you feel its worth it
i have elements 2 , which came out around the same time as cs1. between cs1 and elements 2, elements 2 doesnt have functions like curves and the .. i cant remember what its called .. haha .. few features missing
I believe that element 6 is coming in Sept 07.... so maybe want to wait a while???
Art is perception; Perception is art.
Photoshop element is a simplify version of photoshop, with a much affordable price.
However, some powerful and very useful tools, however are removed, for example
Curve - a very powerful tool for tonal adjustment.
Channel mixer - If you shoot IR , you will miss it.
Lens corrections - For correcting the barrel distortion and perspective distortion of your wide angle lens.
I think Adobe has add back some features to compensate for the above missing functions in element 5.0 .
