I still use v11 to manage my images but these days rarely use its editor, although to be honest it’s still good in expert mode

I begrudged adobe not offering upgrades to loyal users (long time ago) especially as I didn’t see useable improvements, just gimmicks

however last year when my pc crashed and I had to rebuild I found I had lost the disk... I only kept the license key... but it turns out Adobe support were incredibly helpful pointing me to a download site, that and backups meant no losses

based on that I’m tempted to upgrade this year


Hi Jim,

i do like the fact that with an actual purchase of PSE, I can skip a few years if I want too, which is not possible with Photoshop CC. After 8 years with PSE 13, I thought it was time for an upgrade, but wanted to know how much I am missing out on by not getting Photoshop CC. From people’s comments, it looks like I am, but maybe it is not the end of the world if I cannot do certain things. It is all relative.
