I recently bought a Bamboo a few months back, it came with a free copy of Photoshop Elements 8 and Nik Color Efex Pro. I own Photoshop CS4 already, i wanted to know if i could gain anything from Elements 8.

I like Photoshop Cs4, if you are used to it, why change? I would recommend looking at the futures in Elements 8. I would say it is all personal preference.

Good luck!

I have used Photoshop for many years but installed Elements a while back to see the difference. Elements does just about everything I wanted to do in Photoshop plus some things Photoshop doesn't and is more user friendly.

If you have a bit of spare drive space why worry about what others think. Install it and try it. Then it can either co-exist with Photoshop or if you don't like it delete it.

I was going to add it because of how easy it is to work with photos, i just wasn't sure what i would gain from it.
