Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 Review: the verdict

Photoshop Elements 11 is a mature, thoughtful release that has eschewed flashy new features in favour of a genuinely more approachable interface. The Refine Edge tool in itself is enough to warrant the upgrade; the extra filters are the icing on the cake.

Features: 4/5
Ease of use: 5/5
Results: 4/5
Value: 4/5

Overall Score: 4/5

Adjustments are made in 
a similar way to Elements, with Adjustment Layers and masks, but it lacks the polish of Adobe’s software.
