    Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 Editor

    A few weeks ago, we featured the newest version of Pixelmator as a great alternative to Adobe’s expensive Photoshop software. We like that it’s much more affordable, yet still has many of the features home users find important. Well, Adobe has debuted its own low-end option: Photoshop Elements 10 Editor ($80) has just become available in the Mac App Store, two months after the boxed version came out. It has almost all of the same features, with the exception of the Elements Organizer and support for Case Sensitive HFS Volumes. It’s also $20 less expensive than before.

    Like Pixelmator, Elements is meant to give you many Photoshop-style quick photo editing tools without the steep learning curve. But Elements borrows heavily from the full version of Photoshop, with features including layers and the Spot Healing Brush. One feature that will be really helpful for a lot of people new to photo manipulation is Guided Edits, which walks you through the process step by step while you’re editing. The app even allows you to combine elements from different photos to create one perfect version. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which title is a better fit for your needs, but either way, you’ll likely be happy with your choice.
