Is PSE7 very 'old fashioned'?

    Hi, I have PSE7 but have used it very little over the years. Largely because I don't understand it very much and haven't really tried to understand it but also I have been happy to keep my images as they are.
    However, I am finding more and more clients are expecting one to be able to manipulate the images so I need to learn how to use it but wonder whether I should upgrade and if so, to what?
    I use a NikonD70 and D7000
    Any ideas please?

    The latest version is PSE11 and that works the same way as your version although it has more extras now.

    In my opinion, if you've not tried to understand PSE7 then buying a newer version will be no easier.

    After a bit of practise they all become clearer to understand and there's a lot of tutorials on EPZ that can help you.

    If you are not already "into" post-exposure processing and have not become familiar with PSE, then I would suggest forgetting about it meantime and getting Lightroom 4.

    LR will do most of the processing that your clients seem to want - but it will be far easier for you to learn as it is much more "intuitive" than PS or PSE.

    But don't take my word for it. Download a free trial from the Adobe website and play with it for 30 days before deciding.

    I use LR4 and Elements 7. I very rarely have to resort to Elements 7 these days though, LR pretty much covers the gamut.
