what do you mean ...convenience thing for what? ?
( Sorry, am dumb :mrgreen:)

It is faster to do some things, especially if you are doing the same edits to a large number of images.

Elements is great to get "started" with -- it has great tools for editing and also for organizing your photos.

As you go, you may find that you need tools for more efficiency if you are taking a lot of photos and you could benefit from a program that enabled you to work on a volume of photos, doing common task, bringing them in and processing them an then outputting them for various things, and this is what Lightroom was designed for.

So Lightroom may never "fit the bill" for you. Element can meet all your needs for photo editing. Or, Lightroom can be essential to your "workflow"...It all depends on your personal approach to photography and how you want to process things!

If you are a student you can get adobe photoshop cs5 extended for round about 200€ (that's the student and teacher edition)

Thanks for the input guys. I've downloaded the free trial for both LR and Elements last night. So far, the editing re: exposure, colors enhancing etc that i've tried to play with in LR are almost same enhancing capabilities on the Iphoto editor. Unless maybe there were more that LR offers, that I've not discovered yet. So I'll go from here...

How i wish too I were a student so I can get that CS5....i think i really like it- it's just too expensive, imo :p Can a 13 y/o nephew who's starting in photography too and a student be able to get that price for CS5 though? How? Thx

Those wanting a no-cost program for post-processing could take a look at RawTherapee - free for Windows, Mac and Linux, in 32 or 64 bit versions.

Regards, Dave.

I'd second this. RawTherapee is great and it is free. I used Lightroom for a long time, but the interface is pretty horrible, so I moved on.

Today my Photoshop copy bought new on ebay for $ 240 dollars came in the post. Nicely sealed in plastic with genuine Adobe on the sticker. Looks like adobe feels like adobe instals like adobe. Only the serial number did not fit. A nice forgery with a number not generated by Adobe. So be careful with buying photoshop of Ebay cheap.

Yikes, that's scary! I definitely would not want to buy a "meaningful" app through an unknown vendor!

Agreed. Lightroom and GIMP. (I personally use LR3 and Photoshop CS5)

We bought Photoshop on eBay and it was seized by US Customs :lol:

It's funny in retrospect. I guess. Learned a lesson anyway.

I live in the Netherlands and for some reason I'm unable to get a english version of gimp. So I deleted the dutch version. It is a problem when you learned everything in english and I can't translate it in dutch.
I try to get my money back from pay pal they guaranteed the stuff.
