Pre-mommy days I modeled for a living. Contrary to popular belief, Photoshop has aways intimidated me & I didn't know how to use the program myself. Yes my professional photos were photoshopped to the max, I would be pretty mad if they weren't lol... Who doesn't want a flawless photo in a magazine? But I was a model & yes I am also pretty in real life haters & I also know what makeup is & how to use the same filters every other girl plays with on there phones, so my personal photos are just as real as yours ;-)
I always felt that photoshop was a program only suitable for the professional photographers I worked with. It just looked really hard to use & there was no reason for me to have to make cover photos out of my phone snapshots!
Long boring story short... Boy was I was SO wrong! When Best Buy contacted me about doing a review for the new Adobe Photoshop Elements or the new Adobe Photoshop coming out this month, I decided to admit my shortcomings and take a look at what Adobe considers a more casual/beginner editing program, that being Elements.
Is it really for beginners?
Yes, there’s a learning curve, and yes, it will take some time to master all the fabulous features and tools, but Adobe PhotoShop Elements has now made it that even a casual picture-taker or those just getting started can easily organize, edit, and share their photos and videos. My blog is going to be looking pretty sweet thanks to this program!!!
Let me show you how awesome the new Adobe Photoshop Elements really is!
Goodbye flawed, hello phenomenal

You just can't beat Best Buy for the best tech and greatest gifts! There is so much to like about Best Buy and I love shopping there - in store or online, it's great!

These are some great features in Adobe now! I really need to learn how to use Photoshop if I'm ever going to improve my photography.
11/1/2015 03:34:59 pm
Wow, that looks really cool and the pictures look so much better. I'll have to look into getting this.
11/1/2015 04:06:20 pm
I have PhotoShop and Lightroom, love Lightroom, but I don't get PhotoShot at all. I really need the new one that will be released soon. Maybe I can actually use it once I get the hang of it. Looks amazing!
11/1/2015 06:11:48 pm
Post processing is not an easy job but with photoshop, it will be. I really love working on and with PS!
11/1/2015 06:45:24 pm
I must admit that I have not a clue about half of this - I am a total novice but open to learn once I have everything else with my blog under control.
11/1/2015 07:07:30 pm
I love the effects this had on your photos! Good photo editing software is a must have with a good camera.
11/1/2015 07:56:14 pm
I love, love, love this new Photoshop! It is so easy peasy to use :)
11/1/2015 08:09:46 pm
I have seen so much about this lately and how user friendly it is! I need to really check it out because the old Photoshop was hard for me to use.
11/1/2015 09:34:30 pm
The Photoshop Elements sound really cool. I am thinking of getting this.
11/1/2015 09:40:48 pm
I still have the super old version of the Photoshop. This one has a lot of great features and it sounds easier to use. I will check this out.
11/1/2015 09:48:08 pm
Great program and looks easy to use. Thanks for sharing.
11/1/2015 11:16:20 pm
I don't use elements - but I do use Regular (it is called that - I don't even know) PS - and I love it. It took awhile to get used to it after a long time user of LR - but now I won't use anything else
11/1/2015 11:54:56 pm
I've been wanting to buy this but I haven't convinced myself to be out the expense just yet. I appreciate the review. It might just change my mind.
11/2/2015 07:24:36 am
I haven't used Photoshop before, as it sounds and looks really intimidating, but reading your post it actually seems something I might be able to do. Have to check out Adobe PhotoShop Elements as soon as possible.
11/2/2015 07:49:21 am
I saw the backgrounds scene with the kids' photos for school this year and thought that was cool. I'd love to be able to do it at home myself!
11/2/2015 07:50:54 am
I love love photoshop. It's the only photo software that I use to edit my photos. Nothing can compare to it.
11/2/2015 09:03:55 am
I absolutely love Photoshop and Lightroom. They're necessary for my blog posts and editing pictures. Straightening is my favorite, because one picture of every set always has to be corrected!
11/2/2015 10:55:27 am
Photoshop always scared me too! This looks pretty easy though. Do you use Windows or Mac? I've been using my Windows a lot more and know that software like this usually runs better on a Mac.
11/2/2015 01:20:09 pm
This looks awesome! I could definitely use this at home! I need to piece together so many pictures of my kids to make it look like I have a nice one of all three of them together :)
11/2/2015 04:59:03 pm
Best Buy is the place we go for all our electronic needs. The adobe photoshop elements would be a great gift idea for my sisters and my son who love taking picture.
11/2/2015 09:17:48 pm
My mom has this and she is on it 24/7 she loves it so much, it is so helpful.
11/2/2015 10:47:53 pm
I really need to bit the bullet and invest in this and learn how to use it. I have seen a few online courses that would be beneficial, love how creative one can get with this.
11/3/2015 01:56:40 am
I own Photoshop on my computer but I NEVER use it because it's so difficult to understand. I might have to try out their elements since it seems so much easier to use.
11/3/2015 02:31:55 am
I don't know what I would do if it wasn't for the adobeshop elements! I have to use them for everything!
11/3/2015 05:15:22 am
I love using adobe! It makes me help to improve my photo that I'm using in my blog.
11/3/2015 06:44:10 am
I have always wanted to try photoshop, sounds like a great piece of software to have and fun to play around with.

This sounds like an awesome program. I need SOOO much help with my photos, so this sounds perfect for me.
11/3/2015 10:50:46 am
Photoshop is fabulous- and Elements is much easier to learn than standard photoshop. Adobe has great products!
11/3/2015 10:58:47 am
I would be entirely lost in life without my Photoshop in it! <3 Haven't tried Elements before (no need to with use of the full software,) but I love how intuitive PE can be for amazing photo compositions.
WOW. I had no idea this was such an easy to use program. I've seen older versions with large text book type instructions and have always been intimidated. I figured you needed a degree or something to use the program. I'm thrilled to hear it is something I could use. I can't wait to try it out.
11/3/2015 12:09:44 pm
Wow, had no idea Adobe Elements did all that?! So neat to learn more about a product that might just be the thing I need!
11/3/2015 01:20:12 pm
I have never played around with photo shopping. I never knew you could do so much! Will have to go play!!
11/3/2015 05:05:20 pm
I need this software! I would love to be able to do all those things.
11/3/2015 08:09:37 pm
Adobe does make some really powerful products. I'm curious how often they'll update/add features, to do a true comparison to the boxed product.
11/3/2015 08:47:17 pm
This is such a great program. I love how user-friendly it is and how it enhances photos.
11/4/2015 02:00:24 am
I'm seeing a lot of great reviews for the Photoshop Elements. I think I could use this to level up my photos.
11/4/2015 02:48:16 pm
I have used Elements for fixing photos many times. But I must admit, Photoshop is not very user friendly, and I feel that you have to practice a lot to get comfortable with it.
11/4/2015 03:14:11 pm
I have heard so many good things about this app! can't wait to download it again
11/4/2015 08:43:58 pm
It's been years since I last used Photoshop, but I always loved Adobe software. I never used Elements, but it looks like a great tool for personal use and professionals alike!
11/4/2015 11:23:52 pm
I have played with Photoshop and Photoshop elements - great program - and yep it was fun and a big difference maker
11/5/2015 02:14:02 am
I am a huge fan of photoshop. As a photographer I am always going between lightroom and photoshop to edit my photos.
11/5/2015 05:26:54 am
Love how it gets rid of camera shake - my biggest pet peeve! Great product!
11/15/2015 02:38:08 pm
I love the Adobe PhotoShop program! Thanks for sharing.
