Taylor asked:

I can’t really afford the adobe photoshop right now. I saw the price and it’s like $600! WHEW! But the photoshop elements was only $100. Is it for starters? I would love a great picture editing program. I also want to incorporate glitter and other things in my picture and heard you can download free brushes to do this. I’m so lost because I don’t understand photoshop at all. can anyone help me? Thank you!

    It is just a scaled down version of Photoshop for the not so serious photo editor, and really, unless you are in the graphic design business, Elements should suit you just fine.

    Here is a full list of missing features that are not included in Photoshop Elements:

    Happy editing!

    here is an article I found about comparing the two programs.

    but it sounds like Photoshop Elements will work just fine for the kind of photo editing you want to do.

    Photoshop elements is a very basic version of photoshop , but if your looking for a good image editing program there are two amazing ones for free , GIMP and paint.net hope this helps!
