Photoshop Elements 9 Vs Aperture on MacBookPro - Need Recommendation
Jul 25, 2011

I've been using Photoshop Elements on PC for many years. I'm an amateur primarily using this for personal home photos. Im also currently scanning old negatives, slides and pictures so looking for best tool to recover some faded pictures.

I'm currently switching from PC to a MacBook Pro. I can buy either PSE 9 or Aperture from the Apple App store for $80. There are probably more complete and professional tools out there but my budget is limited so this is why I'm looking between these 2 apps.

Question to those of you that have worked with both applications on a Mac. Which would you recommend? I have no experience with Aperture at all. I guess what I'm asking is would Aperture provide as much functionality as PSE 9? Would it simplify the editing work flow of multiple pictures, etc.? I found printing weak with PSE. Is Aperture a step ahead on this area?

Your thoughts? Overall, which is better value and works best on a Mac?

Thank You in advance for any advice.
