    What would be the best choice for Photoshop for a novice? Thanks.

    Elements, if they still sell it. The GIMP is free and does most everything photoshop does.

    PS elements 6 was recently released. Which means you could get good deal on PSE 5.

    For the record, gimp doesn't come anywhere close to PS Elements.

    I'm still using PSE 4. ;)

    PS Elements is an excellent, do all editing program.

    Most most users it is all you will ever need and more.

    Get it and don't look back.

    (I've got 10 years in PS and use elements to teach PS to beginners)

    I've been using Elem. 6 for a few months now and without some sort of manual, I'm struggling. Is the PS Elem. book selling for ~ $30 worth the investment? A class is what I'd really rather get involved in. Know a starting point?
    Thanks

    I use CS3, but I got my copy for free.

    I think I am using 3% of it's functionality.
