The new Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 is now available at Adobe. The makers Adobe have a special offer on now, offering free shipping on the boxed Adobe Photoshop Elements 11.
Elements is the simplified and streamlined version of the full Photoshop, and it takes far less time to learn. It took me three years to learn Photoshop 3 and 4, over a decade ago. It would have been a lot quicker if I could have started on an easy Elements version first, and then upgraded later.
Amazon USA still have the new Photoshop Elements 11 on pre-order, and Amazon UK don’t even list it yet — so if you want a gift copy early then the Adobe offer seems worth looking at.
