Adobe announced the release of PSE 5.0. They highlight features that may not be of use to people serious about photography, BUT upon digging further I found that it has "Color Curves" unsure about what other important features it has.

I recently updated to 4 from 2 and find its a marked improvement in my post processing. Version 5.0 looks like they are going more for the auto/fix type stuff and photo sharing. Anymore updates and I'll go with CS2 or whatever comes out to replace it but so far PSE 4 has done well for me.

Yes, PSE4 is good, You made a major upgrade. I went from PSE 3 to 4 and is more of a minor upgrade.

Bluedog, Thanks for the offer, But I now shoot about 100% RAW and I use RSP which has it. I'm waiting for my free version of lightroom as promised by Adobe when they release 1.0, I just hope it is worth the wait. :confused:

Same here _ I only use PSE 4 for final sharpening of images, cloning, applying frames and such. I do like the fact its supports working with 16 bit tiff also.

I should have known they were going to release a new version - I just ordered version 4 two days ago - shipped today. Oh well. I looked over the changes and did not see anything mentioned that I would use - it appears most the changes are to give you additional ways of viewing images rather than more editing options.

Yea Rdricks! In the same boat here! At least you may be able to send it back if you dont open it. I? On the other hand finally broke down and bought ver 4.0 last Fri evening, AND opened it AND installed it! I'm sure CompUSA & Adobe are WAY more then happy to take it back for a refund right? LOL!!! Then to only find out a new relase in oct/06 is comming out. I mean hey we've all been down this road..but an digital SLR, new (better) one comes out (& to add insult to injury its sometimes is even cheaper), have an x-box they significalnly upgrade it, computers, software, etc. I know it wont ever end, and its also a sales $$$ profit issue for software companies. But I cant re-call buying something and three business days later, a new release comes out! Again I just would have easily waited until Oct/06 if I was aware of it.

However, I would like to see if the B &W conversion tool is a better option that the ver 4.0. doesnt have. Again relae you can remove the color, and make a ton of adjustements, but I'm curious how this specific tool will work, and if it will make it easier to get B & W correct. I have never gotten what I consider a correct B &W digital print. TIm

You can upgrade on Adobe to 5.0 for $69 download.

PC Magazine has an article on it:

You know I saw that as well. I think its just the aspect I paid $99.00 + tax retail, last Friday, and now I will have to pay $69.00, to upgrade...so I will have spent close to $170.00 for photoshop elements 5.0 (which is a $99.00 program last I looked, without the video editing software).

Of course? Then there's the get over it no one's probelm but my own! LOL!!!

You could sell the 4.0 if you have 2.0 or 3.0-then you can still upgrade. That would recover some of the expense.

You could try returning the 4.0 depending on where you bought it.

Otherwise, join the club of technology! I cannot even imagine the number of times that I bought something and just a week after the later version came out!

Sometimes there is a grace period; a lot of MS software used to have a statement that if you bought an item in the last 60-90 days, you could get the latest version free.

And for anyone interested I have 6 copies brand new of 3.0 witheir respective licenses that I am willing to sell for $25 each, with the upgrade of $69 you wind up with 5.0 for $94.

Probably want to post them in the sell section KonTiki - that's a great deal, because PSE3 is a great package in itself - as someone else posted above, PSE4 is not a massive upgrade, and PSE3 will do enough for many people other than the pain to do curves or layer masks.

Yea Goatee....interesting in that I went from Elements 2.0 to 4.0, and although its nice, I wasnt blown away by it. A few new nice features in 4.0 I like, elimated the fill flash for more finer adjustments for lighting (shadows, mid tones, etc) which I really like. What I hadn't formally used before was the Photo Organizer program, which has taken me awhile to get the swing of.

I looked at Dpreview web site & was able to search and found 4.0 was released last sept/05, SOOOO I should have put two and two together, and released 5.0 was going to come out anytime soon. Again it was somewhat my mistake (i'm generally fanatical about reviewing stuff beofre I buy) for not checking into things. And like all of us, I realize this wont be the first or last time (i.e. the new 400D canon). Its that love hate relationship you have to live with in the technology world!
