I purchased photoshop elements 10 in octobor 2012 it cost me 74.00 i bought it from amazon. I am taking a digital scrapbooking course but i need photoshop elements 11..i checked on the upgrade but it is 79.99. i am just a basic computer user so i do not understand why there is no free upgrade. Thank you.
Each version of PSE is a paid upgrade. Adobe doesn't offer a free upgrade from any version to the next one. However, the one exception is if you buy a previous version after a new one is released, which you did. If you contact adobe sales, they may do something for you, but you are well past the deadline for contacting them about this, so it's not guaranteed.
