I cant decide which product is best for a novice...Elements 6 or corel photo x2.

Any help appreciatedThanks..

I would choose Elements. The reason I'd do that is that you might wish someday to move up to Photoshop, and you'll already be comfortable with it more so than with Corel...

I personally have used Paint Shop Pro 7, X and now X2 and have been very satisfied with it. I've trialed Photshop CS, and although was impressed with, the additional features weren't worth the additional cost imo. At $649usd or so, Photoshop is expensive. PSP X2 is just as intuitive as Elements, but adds layers and a few other nice features. And it can be had for less than Elements 6.shinndigghttp://www.pbase.com/shinndigg..

I think a lot depends on where you are going with this hobby. If you stay with a kit lens and take images of the family during holidays, I don't think it matters. Get whatever is the cheapest and you don't have to spend too long learning..

OTOH, if you end up moving forward and becoming an enthusiastic hobbiest, you will end up investing in top notch tools. Photoshop will be one of them, along with other post processing purchases. I still think that one is better off with a growth path in that direction. Photoshop Elements is on that path. Paint Shop Pro and Corel are not..

Just my 2 cents...

PSE has ALWAYS had layers...even PSE1 had layers. Costco had PSE6 for $50 several weeks ago. I agree that PSP is a good editor, but not for these reasons!.

I would pick PSE6 because it MUCH easier to get help learning it....

Besides, PS is the largest photo editing "religion" in the world... .

Keep in mind that this is the beginners forum. Also, have you used PSP X2? It has come a long way. The one area I wish it was better in is RAW conversion. That may be just because I have an E300, now 3 years old. Haven't tried NEF files from my D50, yet..

Also, I haven't used PS CS much, let alone PS CS3. But I do have Elements 3 and 4. I guess I just like PSP X2.shinndigghttp://www.pbase.com/shinndigg..
