    Adobe Elements or Corel Paint shop Pro?

    Well I love how some of the photos that the Free Lance photographers do in this town turn out..I guess I want to edit, And create beautiful pictures..because I have a Nikon D60 and I don't like how some pictures show up...and I want to brighten some up, take some stuff out of pictures etc..I would like to get into taking pictures of families here I hear good things about elements

    Personally, I find Elements more user friendly. Then again, I used it for 2 years in high school for yearbook, so I may be biased

    be cool.

    I'm familiar with Elements. I use CS5 and Lightroom. If all you need to do is basic stuff then Elements or PSP will work.

    Ok, honestly it isn't the editing program you use that turns out beautiful work but your talent and skill. Just the same as it isn't your camera you use but you.

    Any program will work,

    Yeah sorry, I reread how that came out and it can come across rude. I did not mean for that.

    Like I mentioned though as long as you have the talent and ability than the editing program doesn't matter much.

    I have used anything from CS5, to paint shop pro, to free programs online. To ME there is little difference each just has quirks you can use that the others don't so it is dependent on what you want.

    I prefer Paint Shop Pro. I have been using both programs for a long time and I just prefer the tools on it, especially the noise reduction tool. It looks cleaner to me. The program doesn't matter as much as your ability to use it. If you are willing to put in the time it takes to learn how to use the different tools, I say buy whatever you can afford!

    Great Question. I like the advice that it's your talent and not the program that makes beautiful pictures. Sometimes I pull out an awesome photo with no editing what so ever. Sometimes I need help LOL.

    I use Picasa. However I can't do the black and white photo with one thing in the photo in color. That's the only reason why I would want a special program.

    in your search!
