    Default I'm making the leap ... CS4

    I've been using Elements 7 for at least 6 months now. I have the Kelby book, and I'm pretty comfortable with it. But I've been feeling limited when I read tutorials and when I try to use actions in PSE (some work, some do not). So I'm making the leap to CS4. My brother works at a university so at least I can get it from him at a student rate (or something like that). I have to use my allowance money to buy it, but I think in the end it will be worth it.

    If you've made the leap from PSE to CS4, tell me about it.

    CS4 is great. Just have a lot of stuff to digest.

    I haven't made the leap either, but like a PP poster said, once you get used to it, you will LOVE it. I am still learning new things every week thanks to the 6 month photoshop course that's running right now.

    I "think" you can upgrade your education version to a full version later on (without having to pay full price all over again).

    I've never used PSE, so I can't comment there. I did recently jump from PS7 to CS4 though. BIG jump. Well worth the learning curve though. WELL worth it!

    I went ahead and shelled out all the $$ for the non-educational version of it even though I work for a university. I hope to some day get people to pay me for my posters and collages, so I didn't want to take any risk of licensing issues. It was a hard bullet to bite, but I'm glad I did in the end.

    Take care,
    GiGi

    Good luck, you're going to love it Gwen, can't wait to see your stuff from it! And I would check out the university thing. I bought mine with a teacher's discount and I don't have any restrictions on mine. Not that I have any plans for business soon, lol.
