    Comparing Lightroom and Photoshop Elements

    Nice write-up by the folks at PhotographyLife.com. A lot of people ask about which software they should buy and this write-up does a great job pointing at the strengths and uses of each. There's also a comparison of PS and PSE on the site which drills down nicely into whether or not you need to go with full-blown Photoshop. So before you go posting another thread about "Which one should I use?", read these blogs, because I'm just going to point you to them. LOL

    Good article. Maybe someone should sticky this. It is a very common question on every photography forum.

    And I'm glad they included the link to the LR vs PS article. That's another common question. For your average photographer (like myself) buying Photoshop is really overkill. It's kinda like driving a Ferrari through the drive-in window at McDonalds.

    Very timely! I've been struggling through our vacation pictures, and was wondering if there were any options for editing groups of RAW files. Thanks for sharing.

    This was some good reading. It really helped. I was so convinced that I should jump on the LR & PS offer at $9.99, but this really help. I had already downloaded the Elements trial and it seems to do what I need and this article helped with my decision. Thanks for the post.

    I read this article a few months ago and it helped me to make the decision to move to Lightroom. I've read a lot of the articles on that site, there is a ton of good information there.

    Re: Comparing Lightroom and Photoshop Elements

    Brilliant my Birthday is coming and I was wondering whether to ask hubby to get me updated elements. (I'm currently using version 6 which doesn't recognise the RAW files generated by my d300) or to go for lightroom. To be honest I was going to ask for advice! No need I think I'll just get him to get me Lightroom Thank you that was realy helpfull!
