I own and use Lightroom v4.4 and I'm learning it quite well (learned about how to use Black and other Color tools today from another thread) But ... I Just bought Photoshop Elements 12 today. Other than a PITA getting it installed - had to wait several hours for Adobe to receive the purchase info from BestBuy to get the SN to install it. BUT so far I'm loving the software. This one photo I wanted to improve the background so you don't get the stuff sticking out from the car. Plus I have to modify license plates (I was using Windows Paint) and get rid of light poles, people, chairs, etc for other photos. I removed part of the tree in the far left, a sign that you could see in the window, tree branches in upper right window, tree itself and trash can using the Clone Stamp Tool. Just fantastic and it didn't take too long after figuring out what tool to use. :smileys: :love: :cheers: I guess DBJ got his d800 and I got my Photoshop Elements !!
