Yep, better in the field! I also use Lightroom, but find PS Elements oh so much better for this sort of thing. For the cheap price, it is a heck of a program.

Thanks again for the post processing assist, I'm definitely adding your technique to my tool box for future use. Also looking into PS Elements, as I use maybe 1% of the tools in PS CC, and would love to save some money.

Female ruby throated hummingbird. I processed this first one in color and black and white. I like the B/W version. I'll probably experiment with B/W for the second photo as well....

Do you have an older version of PS Elements? I had and was able to get a discount to upgrade to 2018.
Just enter your existing key and it gives the discounted rate. well it did for me.

I do not.. I'm also in a conundrum because LR is my main editor, and you can't get that without getting PS, so Elements might be redundant at the present.

Song Thrush. Not a great shot. The bird was hopping around so quickly that I never did manage to connect with its eye properly

I didn't know you had a cloud subscription. In that case you definitely do not need Elements since it is a much scaled back version of full PS. For those of us diehards that refuse to hop in the cloud :lol:, Elements is a good option along side stand-a-lone LR.

This one is a really nicely done shot. I think the two pine cones look kinda cool in the shot.


LD, or Mike
Often mistaken, but never in doubt.
