I am not sure that I could do a review on Photoshop Elements since I do not use it in my every day life. But I want to tell you, I purchased Photoshop Elements 7.0 today. And I have some FANTASTIC NEWS for elements users who upgrade to this version.
There is a GUIDED editing area that has an “actions player.” And while it is nowhere close to what Photoshop has to offer, nor can you record actions, it is a major step forward for Elements. I have tested my action sets and while most of them use features unavailable in Elements and therefore cannot work, a few more can!
Here are a few that will work in Elements 7.0
- The Eye Doctor and Dentist (these have worked in the past versions too)
- The Tell a Storyboard Actions (10×20, 20×20 and variety pack). The Rounded Up Set will NOT work.
- The Gallery Frame actions – these worked elements 3-5 but were not compatible with elements 6. I may make them available again for elements 7 if there is interest.
- Some of the actions from the Quickie Collection – maybe 1/3 of them. So I may consider making a set similar for Elements 7. This will take some time as I will have to make new ones for 2/3 of the set.
- Many but not all of the actions from the Frosted Memories Set. Again if I hear there is enough interest, I can work on revising this set.
None of these are for sale yet as I need to modify a few things and make installation instructions and user guides. So sit tight… And please comment if you have interest so I know if I should spend the time getting these ready.
So now is your time to express opinions so I know how hard to work on these.
