I checked this point about 4 weeks ago, and found that there were plenty of things that Elements cannot do that PS CS6 can do. Among the things I use are:

  • the Channels panel
  • the Pen tool
  • the Paths panel
  • CMYK and LAB color
  • direct layer masking
  • Layer comps
  • HDR imaging
  • text on a path
  • the Color Balance adjustment
  • advanced color management

Does Elements have the "Content Aware" brush?

Does Elements fully support 16-bit images?

From my experience Elements contains all the bad features of PS and none of the good ones.
On the other hand, just wait 6 mionths and there'll be another version of Elements along to releive you of your money. By the time you upgrade to a useable version of Elelments, you might as well have bought CS6 in the first place.

I have not used Elements since 9, but back then only a few 16 bit operations were possible. I am not sure if there are any 16-bit full featured photo editors besides PhotoShop.  If there are, I hope others will post a list of them. I would be interested in knowing about additional 16-bit tools.
