Sorry if this is a dumb question. We recently got daughter MacBook for college and would like a cheap photoshop type program for her. We were just at Costco and they have Elements 6.0 for $79 but doesn't look like it is for Mac..seems odd. What should we be getting her and what should we expect to pay. Thanks so much for the advice.

There is a Photoshop Elements for Mac, but you do need to make sure you get the Mac version specifically. Costco might not sell it as I've never seen Mac software there. I believe you should expect to pay about $75 for it. Here is an example of what you're looking for.

I would also strongly recommend you consider Pixelmator as an alternative. As a user of the latest Photoshop Elements on Windows, I can tell you that Pixelmator is both less expensive and more functional.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I'm just getting back to this - still on my "to do" list.
Amazon has Elements 6 for Mac for $71.99 which doesn't seem too bad.
I just want to make sure when it gives system requirements
as "Mac OS X v10.4.8 through 10.5"
that my daughter having 10.5.4 is okay.
Thanks!

I just want to repeat my advice above - don't underestimate Pixelmator. It's less expensive, but just as capable and easy to use as Photoshop Elements.

My daughter asked me to report back to you that she did get Pixelmator for $59 and so far she really likes it! Thanks so much for the great tip.

Great! Pixelmator really is THAT good - and they just continuously add new features.
