I have been a photoshop user for many years and have CS6. I am enjoying puting still pics into PRE 11 with some video with my new Sony A99(A great camera).It seems to me there might some advantage using PS Elementswith 11. Would it br worth it to have elements? I have Steve Grisetti's book and love it. Any other suggestions how I would use the two apps together. Iam trying the trial PSElements.
Thanks in advance.
I think you'll have more options with CS. On a separate note - how do you like the A99? I've been an Alpha350 user for years, and have recently been comparing the A99 with the Nikon D600 - as I make the move to a full-size DSLR. Don't want to hijack the post - but would love to hear more about the A99. Thanks Don.
If you have PS CS6 no point in buying PS Elements. Imo a waste of money.
You can interact PS CS6 with Premiere Elements.
Right click on the image in the timeline and Edit Original.
File must be assocciated with PS first.
About the only advantage to using PSElements, with PrElements would be the SlideShow creation function with the Organizer from PSE.
However, one can do SlideShows with just PrE, if the Images are Scaled in Photoshop - any version. It's just a few slightly different steps.
Some of the limitations with PSE are:
I am sure that there are more differences, but they just do not come to my mind right now.
I agree with Ann. I have used PS for decades, and have CS6, so have never been tempted to buy PSE, regardless of price.

Great! "Edit original" got me quickly to PS CS6. Now, How do I best gey back to Pre 11 from CS6?
Once you are done with your changes hit Save.
Non Photoshop files like jpg you need to flatten before saving.
Alt tab back to Elements.
You can either close or leave PS open.
