i was excited to upgrade from 10 to 12. the program works well. i was a bit disappointed in some of the functionality--it's easier in 10 to do the "quick" editing. in 12 it takes so many more steps. i was also disappointed that some 10 features were missing, such as the "blue sky". but 12 has some new features that i was looking forward to. i've decided to keep both versions on my computer. i use 10 for the quick editing, and 12 for the other stuff.

Canon 70D Raw File Problem

By Engineergirl

from Norcross, GA

Comments about Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 & Premiere Elements 12 for Mac and Windows (Box):

I have a canon 70D and this program had a problem reading the raw files. I went online and saw a post where they said I would need a plug in. I also saw one where they said to go to editor-help-updates. I haven't tried it yet. I wish I had known the program wasn't compatible with my cameras raw files before I bought it though.

      I have used Elements before but have switched from a PC to Apple and am still having to feel my way around Elements 12. I think they could give better instructions with the program but it seems once you use it a few times you start to get the hang of it. i use to be a Crime Scene Photographer but have since retired and am using the program for fun pictures, car shows etc.

        I have been using Elements 11 almost every day, for work and for personal use. I like it very much. I've only had 12 for about a week, but so far it has not let me down. Another great product from Adobe!

          Ok. Almost same as 11.

          By Big Jer

          from Tennessee

          Comments about Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 & Premiere Elements 12 for Mac and Windows (Box):

          I needed video editing. I believe the iMovie is a better program. Much easier to use. Some things were missing, that iMovie has. This does have better sound capability mixing. The timeline is more detailed also. I may bring from my movie over, but probably not. I think their videos I need some improvement.

          The Photoshop is awesome. Just not change much from 11. It moves people I tried it quickly and wasn't impressed, but I'm sure if you try to do more detailed job it would come out better.

          Comments about Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 & Premiere Elements 12 for Mac and Windows (Box):

          Basically I bouight PSE 12 just to keep the latest sofftware on my computer. It's important for supporting the newest cameras, taking advantage of the latest upgrades in the software itself, and making sure you have a version that is still supported by Adobe. I also use Photoshop 6, but this is great for small corrections on the go.

            Have used various versions of photoshop for several years. Each upgrade has been selected based on new features. The upgrade this time was to get the latest software for raw editing which covers a new camera. All of my albums and tags loaded perfectly and was able to start editing raw images from new camera immediately.

                  I bought this so I can work with RAW photos.
                  This is a very easy product to use for beginners and powerful enough for pros.
                  This is my first experience with B&H and all the good things I have heard about it seem to be true. The web site is easy to navigate and the transaction was great. I find that the prices are very good for the products I will be shopping for in the future and I will be back with more orders.

                              I received this product as a Christmas gift from my husband. With considerable anticipation I had my son download it. With a little trial and error I did manage to find my way around the Photoshop program. I look forward to many hours of fun and creativity!
