    Hello, I am looking to get a post-photo processing software and looking at the Pixelmator and PSE 8. I just do minor photo editing and nothing too advanced. I'm not sure which I would be better to choose.

    If prices weren't a concern, I'd probably go with PSE, due to the popularity and thus, more support? (from more users). The prices are $34 (with mail in rebate) for the Pixelmator and $65.99 for PSE 8 (also mail in rebate).

    Please advise on which I should choose or what you chose.

    Thanks.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    Try The GIMP; freeware and much more powerful than either of those options.

    Too much hassle to get The GIMP to run under Mac OS X. Just buy Photoshop Elements 8,and install a polished, professional piece of software that will run flawlessly under OS X and which will work with thousands of plug-ins, actions, and filters developed for Adobe products.

    There's a reason Adobe photography manipulation software is the leading brand,and has been for the better part of two decades.
