The Question Club
I currently have Photoshop Elements 9. I've used the free programs, but honestly, I prefer PS. That said, I got Elements because it seemed pretty straightforward and I've enjoyed working with it.|
Of course, I'm on the PS e-list and I got the e-mail advertising PSE 12. I got to browsing and started wondering about the pro version, Lightroom 5 (I'm not sure what to call it - pro/full?). I like to fiddle with my photos and I've found myself running into limits within PSE. The features are pretty straightforward and there's little ability to go in and mess with the internal workings (I'll find a tutorial of something I want to try and find that I can't alter settings - and then I'll see a mention that it doesn't work in PSE).
So my question is, if you've upgraded to PSE 12, do you find it more versatile, or should I think about switching over and getting Lightroom 5? (My mother wants to know what I want for Xmas and this has been brewing in the back of my mind.)
