Photoshop Elements allows you to easily edit and 'publish' your digital photos and images with it's easy to use, intuitive yet powerful interface. Elements is ideal for any enthusiast wishing to manipulate images in a way enver seen before, and, when combined with Premiere Elements a whole new array of features are brought to the table.
Photoshop Elements 6 makes life easy for the beginner with its many quick fix functions and its guided edit process. It really does have one of the best photo-organising album functions, enabling you to manage and organise thousands of photographs by a system of tags and albums, plus some very advanced photo search options such as the new "find faces" feature is quite incredible and allows you for example to search through a set of holiday photographs and find all those which feature the faces of your family and friends.
Photo shop Elements 6 for the images and...
Premiere Elements for the movies!
However before you buy: Photoshop Elements is extremely useful for making DVD menu templates and still images that can be used in Premiere, but Premiere Elements offers very little to those primarily working with still images (the still images Premiere can pull from videos tend to flicker and be of low resolution).
