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.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall Score: 4/5
Other photo editing options
Adobe Lightroom 4
Lightroom 4 has a more comprehensive version of Adobe Camera Raw, seamlessly integrated for easy raw file editing.
Our score: 4/5
Corel PaintShop Pro X5
A strong contender with sophisticated tools, including a useful Learning Centre to help get you going.
Our score: N/A
Adjustments are made in a similar way to Elements, with Adjustment Layers and masks, but it lacks the polish of Adobe’s software.
Our score: 3/5
