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
do. Unlike with Photoshop CS4, which is certainly the expert in its
field and the go-to choice for pro photographers, Elements 8 packs just
the right combo of helpful, intuitive tools for average Joes and
powerful features that even hard-core Photoshoppers can appreciate.
