Question by Morten S: What is the difference between Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Adobe Photoshop Elements?
Hello, Elements is a lot cheaper. Can someone please tell me detailed what the big differences are? Can i for example make graphical designs with it?
I appreciate your help

The main difference would be the ‘pen tool’. This is not available in Photoshop Elements. Additionally Photoshop Elements doesn’t have all the advanced features Photoshop CS4 has, but it does have some of its own things such as the organizer, smart brush, cookie cutter, etc. If you are a beginner or intermediate photographer or digital artist, I would recommend Photoshop Elements. If you are a professional, and wanting to use it for web design and illustration, or very professional photography, that’s the only time I would recommend Photoshop CS4 over Elements.
