View Full Version : What is the difference between Photoshop & Photoshop Elements

I've just installed PSE 2.0 and was wondering what, if any is the difference between the two. Are they used for the same thing or is one for scrapbooking and one for photo editing?
PS is the pro version, PSE is the consumer version. PS has a lot more options, tools, customiznig capabilities, but PSE is more than most home users will ever need. It's a great program. I personally wouldn't try to WORK with it, because to make it as functional as possible I make a lot of presets in PS that I load into PSE.
For those who don't have PS, they can get some free stuff all over the web, from www.share.studio.adobe.com or scrapping stuff like layer styles, brushes, preset shapes, from my PSE classes.
In a word, it'll work great for you. PS is harder to learn and tons more expensive.
Have you been able to get started making a layout with the FIrst Page tutorial yet?

Thank you for your reply. I am playing with my first layout... it's really cool. I am following along in a tutorial and just going to learn the ropes.
I understand the difference now and this should work great!

Good luck with PSE2, it is a greatly underrated program - partly because it is often bundled free with cameras, scanners etc. I just love it, I have been using it for 6 months and I am still learning - there are work arounds for most things and you load brushes and shapes that have been made in PS. It really is all you need :) Have fun
how's the tutorial coming along?
PSE was bundled for promotional purposes, and I'm sure they've more than recouped with PSE3 sales! Both excellent software, you'll love it.
