I am so looking forward to Photoshop Elements coming out in March. The full blown Photoshop is expensive, and I just want some basic photo editing software on the laptop. I can afford Elements when it comes out. Then I won't have to deal with the slow desktop with it's antiquated version of Photoshop trying to keep up with the new OS.

Kiyan keeps eating all my chips. This is so unfair.

I might have to bug you so that I can fiddle with Elements if you decide to get it, to see if I want to get it for myself. I've got an antiquated version 7 that my sister Actually Purchased way back when, but it takes up storage space and I don't need all the featues (plus it's old!). :)

Our Mac is several years old, and between a thousand programs on it, new OS's, and the fact that our Photoshop version is really old, the entire computer groans when I use it.

An alternative, perhaps

Have you looked into The GIMP? It is an open-source, freeware graphics program that I would say has about 90% of the features of Photoshop. It's really quite nice - I used it for a long time before I was able to get my hands on an Adobe CS3 package. kittenpants uses it for a lot of her digital artwork.


They have builds for Liunux, Windows and Mac.

Re: An alternative, perhaps

Would love to hear what she thnks of CS3 suite. I use CS2 for everything (school, home, personal, work) (but mostly stick to InDesign and Photshop really -- yes, I know I miss a lot) --and can't afford to upgrade just yet - but I've seen teasers for some of the new multimedia packets/functions and I want to know how well it works... I want to hear how someone is using all the new dandy toys!
We will be getting it at school this semester (now that I am done). Maybe I just want you to justify my spending too much money on an upgrade...
