Elements 5 is just a crippled version of CS2. You'll find many similar functions, just that CS2 gives you much more control. But for the average person doing some basic enhancement, Element 5.0 is good enough, especially considering it costs 10% of CS2.

use the copy of Elements you have... is it useful and userfriendly for you?... usefulness and userfriendlyness is a personal thing... CS2 has more options and tools, but if all you need is in Elements why spend the money?
