Photoshop Elements is much cheaper (only $99) and is much easier to use than the Pro version. Check it out: http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshopelwin/
I want an image editor for christmas and at first I though i would just ask for photsop since that is all I really know about. Although i have used it before and it was pretty complicated. I just want it to play around and maybe for some projects. I enjoy photography and playing around with picures. So nothing really fancy but something that is advanced enough that it will still be good when i become more accostomed to it. Although if photoshop is fairly easy to get used to with perhaps the (i think adboe has free online courses and stuff) or just totorials then photoshop it is.
So does any one know a good peice of software that is about $400 USD or less?
thank you for your help.
