The battle for online cinema dominance has been heating up in recent months.

If forced to choose a photo editor to sit down and have a beer with,
Elements 8 would be our drinking buddy of choice. It’s friendly, smart,
and it seems to know what we want to do with our images even before we

routines, making it a great choice for repetitive tasks.
