Good photo editing software & if you want to 'try-before-you-buy' there's a trial available via Adobe. This is the full version & not upgrade. Suitable for PC/MAC

I've been watching pricing for a while and this is the best I've seen - excluding Lightening/similar deals.

It is.

Thanks OP. Came on to post this deal! Cheapest its ever been on Amazon except for one day last November. Ordered.

There's no doubt it is a great product and this is a great deal BUT the learning curve to master this is huge. Had a friend who used to laugh at my puny efforts and then sorted them out for me using layers, cloning and all sorts, so be aware this is not really for beginners!

Thanks! Been searching this for a while since I missed this last November.

I already have v9 on my Mac. As this isn't an upgrade, can I still buy it to upgrade me from 9 to 11? The upgrade price seems to be £50! I presume I can uninstall v9 and and install v11, but upgrading would be so much easier.

Photoshop Elements is for beginners and it's very easy to learn. It's Photoshop that is tough to master, far more powerful than this app, but well worth the effort if you're serious about editing photos. But for the beginner/occasional user Elements is a good (and way way way cheaper choice.

Does this do away with the god-awful black colour scheme from v10? It'd be worth £40 just to get away from it...

Wow this is hot!

Try gimp, not amazing, but its free

Elements is easy to use - Just keep it in the Easy layout and work your way up to Expert. Perfect for general needs. This or Lightroom.

Gimp is horrible. Free, but horrible.

Strongly recommend this to go with it - hotukdeals.com/dea…378

Nik Software is awesome. Keep in mind the HDR plugin won't work with Elements though as it doesn't support 32bit images.

BARGAIN! Truly great software that any amature photgrapher should own.

This is a one day special: This offer ends 23:59, March 27, 2013.
Maybe worth putting in OP?

Does anyone know of any good places to get Dreamweaver CS6 and Fireworks at a reasonable price?

This is hot btw.

TIA

hot thanks for posting

great deal, i just bought CS6 and really struggle with it at times. This is far easier to pick up play with and i think it has a few nifty tools it's big brother doesn't

Wow, absolute bargain!! Thanks op, very much appreciated. Just ordered mine and can't wait to get going.

Heat added

Hot price, I purchased this last year in the Black Friday Amazon deal, it’s my first bit of photo editing software, and whilst some things are a challenge its fun to learn, plus there are tons of tutorials if you just Google it.

You can use the license on 2 computers, even Macos and Windows side by side. For anyone who misses this offer, much the same price can be had at any time using a digital download from a US based Ebay trader.

Good software and this is a stonking offer that highlights us in the UK usually getting shafted pricewise buying from the US.

I really need to find out how to shoot with a view to replacing backgrounds. The software has so many options I don't know where to start?

I was advised to shoot against a neutral background but don't really know why. Thinking chromakey I should shoot against a background colour that isn't in the subject (flowers/plants). However I don't have nice sharp subjects as per most selection tutorials so my subject blurs into the background so maybe a background colour similar to the (textured) background colour I want to paste in.

So that's 3 shooting options even before I get into Photoshop.

Anyone know how this compares to Photoshop CS3 in terms of features?

there's a tool in elements where you paint a line around your subject (the colours you don;t want) and then paint a line around the inside of the subject (confirming the colours you want to keep). It's very quick and useful for cutting out subjects.

Has a lot less. Elements is the... raw elements that power Photoshop.

From Wiki;

"Targeted at hobbyists and consumers, it is sold at a fraction (roughly 1⁄6) of the cost of its professional sibling, Adobe Photoshop CS. It contains most of the features of the professional version but with fewer and simpler options. The program allows users to create, edit, organize and share images, all from the same product."

Have v6 & v10 installed. Prefer the earlier version, not worth upgrade.

Is this an upgrade version only or is it suitable for somebody who currently does not have any Photoshop versions?

amazon.co.uk/Ado…__2

Any thoughts on that package?
I currently use Picasa and Windows Movie Maker...neither of which do justice to my Sony NEX camera...

thanks just ordered, cheers OP

It's a stand alone product, not an upgrade. Amazon do this once or twice a year with the latest version of Elements - sell them at around the £30 mark. I got Elements 10 last year for similar money, it's too good value not to.

Hi, You mention Windows Movie Maker and I have tried that in the past. But, on two different PC's it always converts to 4:3 even though I change it to widescreen. Do you get that problem?
Thanks,

I haven't ever had a problem (I use Windows 7 - so it's the 'Windows Live Movie Maker' package). Just go to project from the ribbon menu; you can then select either Standard 4:3 or Widescreen (16:9).

Has anyone had any experience of Adobe Premiere as a video editing package? £62 for Elements and Premiere seems like a good deal...

You need Lightroom and some form of Photoshop, not one or the other.

Because 50% grey background disappears, with nice edges (unlike green screen), when you apply soft light blend mode in Photoshop.

ordered and voted hot, thanks

I have Photoshop CS3 is it worth upgrading to this?

Not necessarily. Elements on it's own is sufficient for some people.

Whilst Lightroom 4 is a very good bit of software Elements can cope with RAW fine, and whilst LR4 does that better than Elements plenty of people get good results using Elements alone. Conversely if you want proper control you need something like Elements - it can do things that LR can't. It's ideal to have both but if you can only get one there is a good argument for just getting Elements.

Price obviously comes into it - LR4 on an Amazon deal will hit £60, Elements is half that. Personally I've been using Elements exclusively and for an amateur photographer it's a very good bit of software and a good introduction to PP. If LR4 or something similar drops to a decent price I'd consider getting it but for the new photographer who is slowly discovering the immense costs involved in DSLR ownership Elements really is a bargain.

Hot from me and ordered!

Thanks, bagged one for myself.
