"Very good basic editing for iPhoto"

Upgraded to Photoshop Elements 10 from PE 6. Works seamlessly with iPhoto. Best for basic lighting and color adjustments of digital images. Haven't tried enhancing video clips.

Bought this primarily for the photo editing - thankfully - since the video editing portion of this software is total garbage. I bought a copy of Movie Edit Pro MX Plus: Version 18 and stupidly I sold it. Not only is the video editing not very user friendly. Not only is the "Insta Movie" simply awful.Adobe constantly wants to charge you more for extra gadgets and bells and whistles along the way. [*]. Unbelievable. Not only do they want extra for the bells and whistles - like decent disc menus etc - but when you hit the "click here for transitions tips and help" - YOU HAVE TO PAY EXTRA IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE HELP! Totally disgusted. Oh yeah - I forgot that on my Quad core PC with 6 GB of RAM .... it freezes and crashes (twice in 2 days).

    Comments about Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 for Mac & Windows:

    I upgraded to a Mac Book Pro and had elements 5.0 on my old windows computer. However when I tried to install it on my Mac, didn't happen. So therefore I needed to upgrade. Adobe told me they could upgrade me to Elements 11 for a low cost. However after going through multiple programs and spending countless dollars on useless programs I found their upgrade to Elements 10 trial. Used that and loved the program. Then I downloaded the Elements 11......Let me just say....I hated Elements 11, it is not very user friendly. LOVE ELEMENTS 10 and glad I that B&H was the only place that I could find it that it being it is out of production. Would highly recommend purchasing this product.

    Comments about Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 for Mac & Windows:

    I bought this version and one week later the updated version was issued. So, most of the tutorials now are for Version 11. I am finding the tutorials clear but all the other aids which are in text, are confusing. This product (except for the quick fixes) is definitely not for the beginner.

      I use Elements for my business, to adjust images from my supplier which aren't always compatible with my business media. I also like Elements to play around with my kids vacation photos. They think their Dad is a magician!! Cool !!!

          Great for all kinds of editing and manipulation. The photomerge panorama works seamlessly. Four stars instead of five because I'm old school - I want a pronted manual. Now If Adobe would just throw in HDRI capability, I'd be in heaven. Definitely worth the price of admission.

                    I gave this 5 stars since it is a great value ( i paid about $). I needed to upgrade because my PSE 8 ACR would not recognize my new Nikon d7000 Raw files. I miss Adobe Bridge from version 8, but I suppose most will be happy with Organizer. I got Lightroom 4 to replace Bridge and Organizer. I like the adjustment masks that PSE 8 didn't have. I may get PS CS6 in the future, but Elements lets you do a lot for a fraction of the CS6 price

                            I don't do a whole lot of post processing with photos but there are some things that just need to be done. I needed a software that was east to use (since I am a beginner at it), and one that was budget friendly. This is a great product! It allows me to fix skin tones, whiten teeth, and remove annoying background things and is very easy to use. Great for beginners or those that don't need to do anything that is very involved.

                              While Photoshop Elements 10 has some limitations on features which a serious, professional photographer needs, it is a great tool for editing and improving digital photos for the amateur who may not wish to spend the bigger bucks on a tool like Photoshop CS 6.

                                        This program is really a cheapy and waste of money. I can do more just using Microsoft Picture Manager and the Nikon software that came with my camera. A complete waste, I would give it zero stars if they would let me.

                                          Elements is a solid product that does everything necessary for 90% of amateur photographers.
                                          Be aware that when Adobe brings out a new version, they stop providing RAW updates for older version. So if you use RAW, and buy a new camera, you may be forced to upgrade the software too.
