This review is from: Adobe Photoshop & Premiere Elements 11 for Windows & Mac - Full Bundle Version
I used to dabble in PS "back in the day" but I have never been an artist. I bought this because I needed to make simple web graphics and edit videos. To date, I have not edited a single video, so I can't comment on that yet. However, I have made several web graphics, and I've also edited several photos. In fairness, I'm a huge fan of Picasa for simple editing of photos because it can't get any easier than "I'm feeling lucky". I don't like/know enough about editing photos in this PS 11 to properly comment on it, however I will say it's not as intuitive as Picasa. It also seems that Picasa is better at it, but again, not familiar enough. In time, I will learn, but in the meantime, I need Crop and I'm Feeling Lucky and nothing further because the majority of the photos I edit are being uploaded to our Facebook business page.
So moving on to graphics creation. Our small business has a website so we need graphics too. I like this program for that! The interface is a good bit different from the PS I remember working with years ago (no surprise) but I was able to find everything I needed, and create graphics that looked pretty professional very quickly. This made me so happy I can not explain. It's been years, and I've forgotten a lot.. and I was never an artist to begin with.
So, if you're a pro, get the real one. If you need graphics, and you're not a pro, you're going to be very happy with this.
Photo editing - Not very intuitive for the average user. If your photo did not come out of the camera perfect, you're going to have a tougher time cleaning it up. If you just need to crop, get Picasa.
Thanks Newegg, super happy with this purchase. :)
