What would be the best choice for Photoshop for a novice? Thanks.

Elements, if they still sell it. The GIMP is free and does most everything photoshop does.

Ohhhh. I have GIMP now, so I guess I'll keep that. Thanks

PS elements 6 was recently released. Which means you could get good deal on PSE 5.

For the record, gimp doesn't come anywhere close to PS Elements.

I'm still using PSE 4. ;)

You don't need the newest PS/PSE. You have nice glass! :supergrin:

PS Elements is an excellent, do all editing program.

Most most users it is all you will ever need and more.

Get it and don't look back.

(I've got 10 years in PS and use elements to teach PS to beginners)

I've been using Elem. 6 for a few months now and without some sort of manual, I'm struggling. Is the PS Elem. book selling for ~ $30 worth the investment? A class is what I'd really rather get involved in. Know a starting point?
Thanks

And a bruise on my shoulder to prove it. ;)

I use CS3, but I got my copy for free.

I think I am using 3% of it's functionality.
