Hi,

PSE 21 is on sale right now and I am wondering what are the differences between it and the monthly subscription version of Photoshop CC from Adobe?
For example, is the stacking function the same?
and what about the Sky replacement option?
And other features?

Thank you in advance for your help.

It used to be that Photoshop Elements limited you to 8-bits, including for TIFF files.  Maybe this is no longer true?  I don't know.  Limiting myself to 8-bits would not be something I would want.  But if you only shoot JPEGs, maybe it won't matter.

Last time I looked at it (years ago) it had a Levels Adjustment, but no Curves.  Again, don't know if this is still the case.

Also, I remember it having less functionality in layers.
