Too expensive


It’s OK. Far too much extra stuff around the screen, not precise enough, some tools lacking, it lags, its slow. Definitely not worth the 100 pounds which it costs - which I imagine is the price tag purely for profiteering reasons.

As a reply to the below comment: “consumer oriented user base”? Is that a euphemistic justification for low quality and high price? What does the term “consumer oriented user base” even mean when refering to a product which is by definiton intended for the *production* of digital imagery? I find that extremely disrespectful.

Hi, Thank you for your feedback on Photoshop Elements 2018. Photoshop Elements is intended to meet the needs of a consumer oriented user base, and therefore doesn’t include all the tools of Photoshop. If you want to remove some panels and reorganize your workspace, You can easy do that - deselect by clicking on Photo bin , Layers icon on task bar. We hope you understand, and will consider revising your rating . If you are facing any issue, please contact us at . Thanks, Adobe Support

Can’t edit & save files anymore!


I’ve been using the 2013 Elements for years, but had to upgrade to 2018 due to Apple’s software update and it not being compatible anymore. The 2018 version was great for a few weeks and now it won’t allow me to edit files and save for web. Basically I have an app I can’t use and a bank account £65 lighter with nothing to show for it! CHEERS!!

Terrible Software - Be Aware


After paying £64 its hard to describe how disapointed I am with this software. I have a mac pro core i7 which handles everything I throw at it until now. PSE just crashes I cant even forse stop and I end up pressing on the on\off button until the machine closes down.

The photo organiser is awful and takes for ever to load and uploading from my camera well I can forget about it for an hour or more

Feel Cheated and for sure I’ll not give a recommendation...
