    Software choices, and recs???

    Photoshop Elements, Paintshop Pro, or any others?

    My father in law uses Photoshop Elements, and recommends it. I'm just curious what everyone here uses.

    I use a number of programs. mainly photoshop. also paintshop pro. the plugins work for either program. also I use addons, like kpt6 and aftereffects.
    it really depends on what you want to do. if you need something for vector graphics, theres illustrator. if its raw, adobe works very well.

    I use Elements 5.0 and Paintshop Pro XI. I like Elements 5.0 better, but PSP XI is easier for cleaning up high-ISO images and seems to have some easier to use one-step fix options.

    Note that I don't do anything really "fancy", mostly basic levels corrections and sharpening.

    Elements 5.0 has an "adjust sharpness" command which I think is better than the unsharp mask.

    Another thing I like about Elements 5.0 is the "bicubic sharper" option available when resizing an image.

    IMO, Elements 5.0 does a better overall job, but is harder to use...

    I use Paintshop Pro with around 40 plug-ins, plus another 16 standalone software programmes including Photoshop, Gertrudis, Pixmatic, Serif PhotoPlus, Real Draw, Instant PA, Adobe Photo Elements, plus 4 specialist Japanese applications.

    I do a lot of graphic work...
