Question by I Am The Walrus: Is Photoshop Elements7 an improvement extension of PS CS4 or is it basically the same thing only fewer control?
I have been working with Photoshop CS4 for years and graduated with a degree in Graphic Design last year. I am considering purchasing a new software and have heard that Photoshop Elements 7.0 is the simplified version of Photoshop CS4 (and in no way improved).

Is Photoshop Elements an improvement extension of PS CS4 or is it basically the same thing only fewer controls?

Answer by Mujer Alta
Elements 7 is what’s called a “build” of Photoshop CS4. It’s developed using CS4 as its foundation. Elements is a “basic” edition without the more professional bells and whistles. Not as many adjustment layers, not as many controls, no vector graphics capability, no color separation for printing, etc. Elements is for the hobbyist. Photoshop, for the professional. Elements is not an improved update for CS4.

CS4 is the new version of CS3. It is the same basic program with a few new fun features like content awareness. If you have CS3 you can just get the upgrade to CS4.
