There are more features available when used as part of Photoshop CS3 as opposed to Photoshop Elements. I don't have Elements on computer I'm using right now to check exactly which ones, but there are fewer tabs and adjustments when used with Elements.
ACR in PSE is "dumbed down". You only get the full power and feature set
with the full version of Photoshop not its lighter little brother.
Thanks, but how "dumbed down"? I can't find any documentation on Adobe's site as to the differences between ACR in CS3 and PSE 5.
It would probably be a good idea for you to ask this question on one of the Elements forums rather than here. I have never used Camera Raw in Photoshop Elements. But it is my understanding that the only controls you have are the ones on the first tab of camera raw. So that means you would not have curves, detail adjustments which include the new sharpening tools, the hue
-saturation-luminance controls, the split toning, the calibration control panel, or the ability to save subsets. Also, I don't believe it is possible to load multiple images into camera raw, and I don't believe it is possible to copy settings from one image to another. Other than that, I don't know what else to tell you. Most of the participants in this forum I believe are using Photoshop.
Jim is right. Few of us are familiar with Elements.
On the other hand, you can find the answers you need all by yourself. Just download the 30-day trial version of Photoshop CS3.
I found this response in another forum that asked this question. I can't confirm it - as Ramón says, try it.
"We got [in Elements]:
2. Light Fill
4. Clarity (new for v4.1 vs v4)
"Under Sharpening (all apart from Amt is new for v4.1 vs v4)
