Title: Lightroom or PS Elements 11
Post by: Cornish on June 07, 2013, 12:23:59 PM
I have downloaded the trials of both Lightroom and Photoshop Elements 11.
Both are nicely set out and easy to use, though I do like the black of lightroom compared to the grey of elements but thats just cosmetic.

One of the photos below has be edited in lightroom and then my old elements and the other just in elements 11.

I'm interested in what you think of the photos, as I will need to make a decision as to which one to keep. I would like to keep both but that is a lot of money in one go.

I prefer the second, the first looks washed out by the light.  I've found lightroom really difficult to use, am I just a complete numpty with computers now?  Or just lazy?  ::)

I prefer the second one as well. I just bought Elements but haven't used it yet. I got it rather than Lightroom simply because I've used it a while ago and also I felt it would be more useable for different things.

Funnily enough the first photo is elements, but I found the Lightroom auto will sometimes over expose the photos. I think I will be going with the elements as I can do a lot more with it.  :)

The second's better, but the first one has been over-lightened and that needn't happen.

I'd like to see the first one less exposed.
Now now lets not go there  ;)
