looking for some advice, at present I am using a canon 50D camera on which I take my shots in raw format convert them to tiff in canon DPP then fine tune them in adobe elements 6 which all works fine, I have been thinking of upgrading to elements 10 what I need to know would the upgrade be worth doing ie will I gain much? also I have heard some people have had problems running elements 10 on windows 7, I would be glad of any advice/feedback Rod.

Hi Rod......I use a 50D in RAW mode, & the files open up automatically in Adobe Camera Raw, from Elements 8.....& I find Camera Raw
much better to use than Canon DPP (which came with the camera).......I upgraded from Elements 5 to 8, so I would imagine the
upgrade from Elements 6 to 10 would be a good move !!!........it's available from Amazon & Curry's I believe at about £35, which has
to be a bargain !!.....I'm very tempted myself !!
Windows 7 was the "current" PC operating system when Elements 10 was released last year - so there should be no compatibility problems.
I use Elements 10 on windows 7 and have no problem at all
I had several camera club members on their laptops the other night using all sorts of imaging programmes.
There was quite a difference between Element 6 and 10.
Both users who had E10 were using Windows 7 and had no problems.
I've moved from E6 to 10, and run on Windows 7 64bit without a problem. I got it for about £30 from Amazon (although that was as part of their Black Friday deals).
Thank you all for your comments, I have now decided to stay with elements 6 as I dont think I will have much use for all the extras that are in the 10, I use the 6 for editing then saving to my own file system, dont need to share on line etc, anyway thanks again, Rod
For me the improvements of PSE9 over PSE7 were introduction of layer masks (finally!! - but the 2-step workaround for PSE8 and earlier worked just as well); 'content aware fill' makes spot healing so much more effective and some of the algorithms are greatly improved. However, by all reports the catalogue in PSE9 went a bit screwy compared to PSE8 so that may be a negative (I never used it in PSE9 so I don't really know).
PSE 10 is based mainly around we sharing and other such things that I don't need.
