My sister just told me that Amazon.com is selling Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 for only $50 right now. That’s the cheapest I’ve ever seen it. If you’ve been thinking about purchasing it, this is the time. I generally recommend people buy their software at the Computer Connection (at the back of the Penn Bookstore), because of the educational discount, but they actually sell Elements for $99.
Photoshop Elements is similar to the full version of Photoshop, but it’s aimed at hobbyists and consumers instead of professionals. It still has most of the features Photoshop has, and has a simpler interface and fewer options to get tangled up in.
If you want to try it out before you buy it, you can download fully-functional free 30-day trial versions at http://www.adobe.com/downloads You’ll just need to register for a free Adobe account.
I don’t know how long this sale is for, but you can buy software now at http://www.amazon.com/Adobe-65193986-Photoshop-Elements-11/dp/B0093FROMA
