Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 is the latest release from the Adobe Photoshop family and it is the little brother of the industry standard digital imaging software product Adobe Photoshop. Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 is available for both Windows and the Mac platforms and has incorporated many new features.
Photoshop is considered by many to be the best image editor on the planet, but unless you are a professional, it may not be the best choice for the general consumer. This is for a couple of reasons. First, with a high end product, there is usually a high end learning curve that can take months; even years to become accomplished with such an all-encompassing product. Second, a high end product usually comes with a high end price. In the case of Photoshop CS6, purchasing it new that can mean $699 USD for the standard version, and $999.00 USD for the extended version. For Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 it is $99.99 USD, or bundled with Adobe Premier Elements 11, it is $149.99 USD. You can check out what you need to run Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 from their tech specs page.
