I think Photoshop or Photoshop CS2 is pretty good. I am using Photoshop CS2 version 9.0 from my first accepted photo till now, and have not yet found any serious problem.

Yes, Photoshop CS2 is by far the best editing software available.

Great images are made in the camera.  Wink I would look less to software, and more toward technique and knowledge. With a great starting image, just about any software will work.

Now that this topic is being discussed, how does Photoshop Elements (around $100.00) compare to CS2 (around $599.00)? Maybe a better question is what does CS2 give you that "Elements" doesn't for the extra money? I am new to editing photos and I am wondering if good results can be attained from using "Elements" instead of CS2. I agree with Jeff's post that a good picture will work with about any editing software...but what about those images that are "borderline," does CS2 give one more ways to "correct" such an image??

Elements 3.0 has all the functionality of CS2 that is required for post processing aircraft photo's for A.Net and in a much neater interface (CS2 looks so dated). But why are all Adobe products so 'bloaty'? Even the latest versions of Reader take ages to load.

I also agree with Jeff. You've got to give the software a chance by giving it a decent image to work with.

It is worth looking on eBay. You can often pick up cheap unregistered copies of Elements that have come bundled with a product (Canon cameras for example). I paid less than $30 for my Elements 2 to a guy who'd got it with a scanner and who already had CS2. Elements does everything you will need to make you shots a.net ready and is a good program to start with.

Check also that your OS is capable of running the software. Many newer products will not work with older OS like Windows ME and require XP as minimum.

I recently bought Elements 3.0 for $99.00 and I'm happy with it. Nice to hear that with this software and a GOOD STARTING IMAGE pics can be processed to A.net standards. Thaks to Willo and Sean for your input...Cheers

Indeed, I purchased mine for somewhere between £50 and £80 (can't remember now). For the first week I was worried I had wasted my money as I couldn't get to grips with it, but after that week things really started clicking into place. I think it offers an excellent price/performance for the typical home user looking to have access to decent editing tools for his aviation photos. I can't understand why a home user would spend so much money on Photoshop CS2 when that would be money that could be spent towards a new camera or lens. If money is no object or you are looking to be a more professional photographer I guess that would be fair enough.

Best regards,

Jim



Erm, is this thing on?

I have heard some things about the new Smart Sharpen on CS2. How is it better then say 7.0.

Are the settings the same as in 7.0?

Best Editing software is Adobe Photoshop CS2.0.

The best affordable version for a beginner/amateur is Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0.
