    Mostly just the 3D according to the chart, and a significant difference in price.   The chart is misleading though...  it says that Elements has Photomerge, but not either version of Photoshop.  Photoshop has an excellent photomerge feature.

    If I buy Extender, I will still have all the feataures of standard photoshop ?

    Yes.

     

    Photoshop Extended = standard Photoshop + (mainly) 3D

     

    Download the 30 day free Trial and see if you need the 3D features.

    It's $400 for the upgrade,$1000 full USD. Standard is $200 upgrade/$700 full. Choose wisely as they say.

    It's quite a difference, and I don't use 3D that much, because I have never taken the time to learn it properly.  Corey Barker has some good tutorials on Planet Photoshop, but I don't know how much he has done with CS6 3D.

    I guess having spent the extra dollars, I should start working through some of those tutorials, but I rationalise my inability to learn every aspect of every item of software I own, by completely believing the urban myth that Albert Einstein had difficulty with simple tasks like how to tie his shoe laces.

    Extended has also the Analysis functions (now moved to a sub-menu) useful for scientific imaging and forensics. Image stacking, and other specialized tools.

    Photoshop standard gained the timeline based animation panel that was once a extended only feature.

    Hi

     

    Photoshop CS6 Extended version has 3D features, you can easily convert a simple text to 3d using repoussé.

    3D feature is not available in Photoshop CS6 

     

    You can check more about Photoshop CS6 Extended 3d features using the below link.

    Apart from 3D features Photoshop CS6 Extended has many more extra features link  Image analysis, Motion content editing etc.
