What’s the difference between Photoshop Elements and Adobe Premiere Elements?
Photoshop Elements is designed for photos
Premiere Elements is designed for videos
Both apps share a common organizer for easy access to all photos and videos
They’re sold separately or bundled together as Photoshop Elements & Premiere Elements
I studied YouTube instructional videos, the User Manual and many online help to be able to use Photoshop Elements effectively to edit photos. The two most recent releases offer new features centered around adding one-click, or other easy access to apply effects. I infer that Adobe is targeting users who only want to improve snapshots of family and other casual uses, so Adobe no longer assumes any background in photography or photo editing. They have “hidden” some of the technical terms such as “de-Gauss” and color curve. They offer short-cuts and integrated tools that produce what I consider “cute” effects such as “speed bluring” meaning a blurred streak on one side of an object to imply that it’s moving too fast for the camera to capture. However, I am glad that much more sophisticated features for photo editing are still there. For example, balacing the color tones and lighting when combing elements from different photos, compensating for perspective such as the fore-shortening caused by tiny phone camera lenses. I bet many users don’t know that selfies using just your arm (rather than a longer distance between the camera and the subject) distorts the face so that the nose is more prominent and the face is more round.

Best photo software yet
Bought the 2022 version to replace the existing 2013 one. Had the extra feature of opening closed eyes, which I needed for a group shot. Keep in mind, have to have open eyes of the person whose eyes are closed. That’s why multiple shots needed on group shots. Would recommend. NOTE: Adobe forgot to include some dll files. Had to get them on the web. The same case with the 2021 version of elements.

This tool contains the major functions and elements found in Photoshop CC for much less money

The front-end dashboard is an annoying “gateway” for Adobe software other than Elements but of course I only bought the license for Photoshop Elements. Once your eye wander to your licensed software, in my case elements, it is what I expected and is a significant jump from Elements 11. There are more options and more refined tools that’s existed for decades in this software. While I am annoyed by the dashboard, this is the best Photoshop that I’ve used to date.

Tried a true photoshop software. Works well on my PC with Windows 11.. easy, moderate and advanced work flows … $60 is a great deal and i dont have the pressure of paying a yearly or monthly fee to use.

I bought the PC/Mac Disc version of Photoshop Elements 2022 but I didn’t install it from the disc. Rather, I downloaded the latest installers for my Mac and for my Windows PC from Adobe’s website and used the serial number from the disc to validate them. I had zero problems installing it this way. This way I was able to legally install it on both machines.Once past the installation, I imagine that one’s familiarity with Photoshop and Photoshop Elements may be the determining factor as to how much one enjoys using this amazingly rich software. I’m lucky in that I’ve used both programs quite a bit over the years so I find it familiar and easy. I’ve tried other programs such as the free GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) and experienced only frustration in not being able to complete my tasks, knowing it would be so much simpler (for me) in Photoshop Elements.On the other hand, if a person is brand new to Photoshop Elements, I could see it being overwhelming as there are a ton of features. In that case I might think about taking a class or getting a good book on the software before attempting to learn its mysteries.

I originally had a bootleg copy of Photoshop Elements on my last computer which I just replaced with a new computer after six years. So, I wanted to actually purchase the program this time around and when I saw it on sale for Amazon Prime Days for only $69.99 for a two-seat license, I snatched up a disk and have just installed it on both my and my wife’s new computers. This program is designed for non-professionals who want to enhance or improve their photos using tools that anyone can master. So, if you’re an amateur photographer who just wants to enhance or tweak your photos, look no farther than Adobe Photoshop Elements. It will probably do everything you want it to without devoting a year of your life and four textbooks as I did a few years ago when I thought that I “wanted” to learn how to use Adobe Photoshop.
