Well to cut a long story short I've decided to get Elements 10 and forgo the pleasures of CS5. I don't really want to spend a great deal of time in extensively manipulating images (or for that matter the cost of the software) so feel Elements is aimed at just about the right level for me. Another factor was that currently it's selling for only £35 on Amazon which is a bit of a bargain, so it was ordered and is winging its way to me as I type. I'm looking forward to replacing my rather rudimentary copy of Elements 3 shortly and giving version 10 a real try out! The Adobe 30 day trial was useful, but didn't really give you enough time to try everything, but given the current price I'm more than happy to buy and try.
Born in 1956 (so getting on a bit now) I'm married and have two wonderful children we all live in Devon in the South West of England - on the Cornish border.
