PhotoShop Elements
In reply to Chester S Parks, Jan 9, 2013

I'd say one of a two options...

First is do nothing. What is wrong with CS4 besides the fact that it is "old." On a mac it might be a little slow as it is limited to 32 bit an cannot use more than 4GB of RAM which can make it a little slower if you have big files and a computer with a lot of RAM that isn't being utilized, but for most people it's fine.

Second is look at Photoshop Elements. What do you do with Photoshop that isn't offered in Elements? CMYK or multi-channel conversions? Channel calculations? 32 bit image editing? 3D rendering?

What do you really need? Layers, adjustment layers, masks, blending modes, cloning/healing, photomerge? They're all there in Photoshop elements.
