Whats the best software for photo editing and creating product catalogues that can be saved as PDF's
really? asking this in a photoshop elements forums?
You are asking two different questiions:
1. What's a good photo editor? Answer to that here is probably obvious.
2. What's a good desktop publishing/page layout program for creating PDF files for production? Answer, not PSE. It's a photo editor, not a page layout program.
