Much of what can be learned in even an old program like PSE2 can be easily transferred over to some of the full PS programs. Some processes and tools will be in different places, but much of it still works the same. If you want to try the different software versions and see how your system handles them, you can go to Adobe's site and download fully functioning, free trial versions as a test.

for those that prefer PS Elements over PS, a fully functional PSE 4.0/5.0 is also on that list of "free" downloads now. No need to use a limited trial version unless you want a newer version of PSE or something newer than CS2.


oK So others have told me that Elements is tricky and confusing for a beginner. I know things take time but is it too much for a true true beginner? I downloaded the cs2 so Im wondering if the PSE was included or not or if you had to download it separately. So in other words I could uninstall cs2 and just install pse4 and it might be easier for me to get a handle on??
