Adobe Photoshop Elements
Photoshop Elements is a "lighter" version of Adobe Photoshop which has about 80% of Photoshop's features, at 20% of the price, and with a 30% lower learning curve -- it's Photoshop without the "steroids". This is Photoshop the easier way!
Learn how to use Elements to do many of the same things you can do with Photoshop, only easier. You'll also learn how to use new features added to Elements that aren't available in the full version of Photoshop.
Prerequisites: No prior graphics editing experience necessary. Good working knowledge of the Windows or Macintosh operating system.
