Elements 10 at discount price in UK

Just thought I'd pass along that Curries and Amazon are both selling Photoshop Elements 10 at around 33-5 at present; well worth getting if you've not got any other editing software (regular price is somewhere around 70).

Plus a quick question on my own part in that if Elements 10 is worth getting if one already has Elements 6; sadly most of the marketing on the elements series focuses on the organiser (which in elements I don't use) and on the creative filters with far less to almost no mentions about more mundane and practical controls and applications in the software.

If you are going from Elements 6 then I would say it is worth buying v10. In v9 they introduced layer masks (finally!!!) and for 33 I think it is a price worth paying: but then again if you use the 3-step workaround for layer masks and do not consider it a burden it may be moot. Also their healing brushes have improved a lot even if they are not up to the standard of PS 'content aware'.

I've been using a layermask addon for ages in elements 6 (I love it) but I was never able to do anything with the layermask itself - like copying or adjusting the mask. Can you do that in the new version of elements - or is it just a basic mask that you can paint into and adjust opacity?

Wow, this is well worth it I think. I just ordered a copy - many thanks for sharing.

I have Elements-9 and I am not that impressed. I prefer Windows own PP suite.

I thought that last January when Apple started selling Aperture for 44.99 !

At that price even though I am on Elements 8 you can't miss it. Just bought it. Glad I looked in.

Have Adobe done anything to address people's complaints about its speed? Elements 8 slows down to a crawl with more than 20k images and the Map pane has never worked, as far as I know.
I usually buy every other version, because there are few useful changes from one version to the next. Adobe upgrade prices are a rip-off, they offered me a discount of 11.91 before VAT. I find it cheaper to buy the full software from places like Amazon.

That is partly why I went for LR3 when they advertised it at 70% reduction (about 95) - I had read that the organiser in PSE9 was significantly worse than in PSE8.
I was using PSE9 for quite a while and thought the upgrade from PSE7 was worth it. I also think the organiser in PSE9 was an improvement. 35 for PSE10 is a bargin. I'm now using a mac so switched to Aperture 3 as i couldn't get PSE9 to work and adobe support didn't want to know. But i do rate elements. I even found it more user friendly than LR3.
