The last PS Elements version I purchased was PS Elements 15; however, I have never used it. The reason: shortly after I purchased it I learned a new version was in the works. Now we're up to PS Elements 2121. Frankly, I am tired of comparing, deciding whether to upgrade, reviewing 'new' features, regardless if there is a new 'tool' or an improved organizer. My feeling is that I could simply read information about the new upgrades and do nothing else: no shooting, no equipment changes, in short, no photography. It seems to me Adobe is simply trying to attain a level of software in which every photograph is either 'perfect' according to some preconceived idea of what the perfect shot should be OR creating so many 'innovations' like enhanced slide show, actions, techniques, etc., that the photographer will eventually--through overload--toss aside any of the original purposes or objectives one has had for photographing itself. Is the answer jettisoning the whole elements framework (I suspect photoshop is being marketed in the same way -- i.e., new, improved model you must upgrade to. The other option is to avoid as much 'digital darkroom' as possible and work on photography itself like lighting, subject matter, environment, etc. Any suggestions.
