I use lightroom and elements but as I am doing more composites now I feel a need something a bit more. What are everyone's opinions on OnOne? I'm not sure if I want to tie into a monthly contract with photoshop.
All opinions appreciated

If you don't fancy the rental version, it's still possible to buy Photoshop CS6.
Personally, I'm a Photoshopper; I've never used onOne, so I can't comment although Photoshop is the industry standard for a reason.
before you buy into OnOne, make sure your computer can handle it ,I didn't and had to upgrade my comp at some cost , it wont do everything ps will but what it does it does very well and does some things that you would really struggle with in Ps.
I've been using Perfect Photo Suite (PPS) from OnOne since version 6. I use it with Lightroom in my workflow. I also have Photoshop, but rarely will I venture into photoshop. I generally start in LR5, then move to PPS 8 to do the majority of editing. PPS is SO much easier to use than Photoshop but, as NeilWigan said, it won't do everything Photoshop will do (there's no liquify tool, as one example). But I find PPS8 to be a great tool. It's a great company, too. Free and unlimited tech support, free Webinars on the use of the tools, lots of videos, 'inspirational' videos. Download PPS 8 for a free trial from their website to try it out... That's what I did originally and I'm 3 versions in now and don't regret it one bit. There are professionals who use it, too (I'm not one of them, though).
Thanks all, I will download a trial at the weekend to see how I feel about it but for the price you certainly get a lot.
I would encourage you to watch some of the excellent videos available to be able to appreciate just how good this software really is. Linky
Thanks for the link, will take a look
I am running on windows 7 32bit and perfect photo suite is 64bit so looks like I may need to upgrade laptop

Check to see whether (or not) your processor is 64-bit capable.
If it is, then you'll only need to replace, ie. format and clean re-instal the operating system.
Unless you'd prefer a new laptop, of course!
Thanks will check that first
I have OnOne, and it's great fun to use. I got it for a special deal of $179.00 including a $50.00 tutorial video, but they have tonnes of free tutorials on their site and on youtube.
If you are doing montages then Photoshop is the easiest and fastest, any version from 5 (1998) onwards will be fine for doing this.
Having said that I use CS6, I like the Warp tool and the tabbed images, the hyped up Quick Selection Tool is mostly useless, the Pen tool remaining the best for cutting stuff out.
Here's a couple of pics;
Cobbled together to begin with
And very nearly finished

Sorry about the above I was using IE (nuff sed)
There we are - Jim
