Is there any significant difference between the two versions to
justify the price difference? Since I only use Photoshop casually,
and likely will continue to use Photoshop 7 (on my desktop Mac) for
serious work, I'm wondering if I even need to spend the extra $30-50
for Elements 10 versus Elements 9. This is for my MacBook so I can do
some photo editing away from home if I want.
Comments will be much appreciated.
Yes, I totally agree iPhoto is good for minor edits for the way most
people work with their photos. What I most interested in it for could
not be handled by iPhoto, it is definitely not for creating but for
editing. Often I recommend people use iPhoto since mostly they want
things that are minor edits/adjustments.
While I use Photoshop for those things, I use it for far more.
Basically, for my MacBook, I need the basics of Photoshop but don't
need all the advanced features. So far (a total of less than two
hours), I have found PE rather difficult to work with as compared to
Photoshop but that is undoubtedly because of differences, that habits
thing and old dogs.<g> Today, I'll make a trip to Powell's for
Classroom in a Book.
It is definitely my plan to buy either PE or Photoshop but see no need
to install Photoshop on my MacBook as it isn't the place I would be
working with anything of serious nature anyway but still want to be
able to do things either at work or when I am away from home. iPhoto
does not allow text, layers, etc., which are things I would be doing.
As an example, I am about to work on a fabric design with my family's
names in various fonts and mirrored, not even thinkable in iPhoto.
With PE, I won't be chained to my desktop machine for all the mundane
preparation of the images and can move to my desktop machine when I am
ready for the actual positioning and sizing. Before I reach that
point, however, there is a lot of time involved in creating the parts.
A few weeks ago, I found an absolutely wonderful website for
Spoonflower Fabrics; they print your design on your choice of fabrics
from a selection of several fabrics - all made in the U.S.A. - so the
finished garment is truly all American. On Thursday, I received my
first order, knit fabric with a design taken from a chalk drawing my
middle granddaughter gave me on Grandparent's Day last month; I am
more pleased than I can express with the results. She is getting a
t-shirt made from her design for her birthday later this month and
will undoubtedly be delighted. Now that is really getting off
If there are no significant changes between 9 and 10, it makes no
sense to pay more for 10. Have you noticed many changes from one
version to another as you have upgraded in the past?
