Yea, if you don't know the GIMP interface and hotkeys well, you won't be able to do anything efficiently/quickly.

Bemjamin I was wondering. What is the difference between my Elements and your CS6? What are the big things that would make me, who hardly does graphics, want to have it? Or is it mostly just for those who want to be serious in graphics?

That just about sums me up. I tried it a little but it was to confusing after using Elements for so long. :P

What kind of graphics do you plan on creating? I have CS5 and the majority(design interfaces) of what I can do in CS5 and I can do with PS7. I'm not sure about PS elements as I only used it for a couple days 4 years ago.
Send me a message and we can talk about design forums.

Honestly, I'm not familiar enough with Elements to give you a comparison. I know you can manage a lot in Elements. But whenever I used it, it always felt incomplete because I was used to having more features.

Depending on what you want to do with it makes all the difference. If you're just looking for simple photo editing, Elements would be fine. (But so would GIMP)

If you want more advanced photo editing, Photoshop... Or Aperture, or Lightroom.

If you're looking into getting into graphic editing, most likely Photoshop, although you can do a lot in Fireworks too.

The bottom line is -- as long as you know how to use the tools you have, what does it matter?

Indeed. In GIMP, there are many things that can be done by hand (taking forever and inferior quality) or by Script-Fu stuffies.

...all you need to do is learn the utilities you have for better results.

I've got to admit though the content awarness scaling is (in newer versions) is god damn handy. I'll post an example if any of you guys don't know what that is.

I've used GIMP, Elements, and I have CS6 Extended now. I honestly have to say that I prefer CS6 out of them all. Just my preference, though c;

GIMP: It was never really stable for me (I distinctly remember not being able to create a "new" image or it would crash -- I'd have to open an old image, paint that over, save it as a new file, and then use that as my "new" image). It also isn't very appealing to the eye (okay so this is a totally stupid one, but I'm vain and like things to be pretty).

CS6: It's clearly quite stable, and I feel as though there are a lot more tools you can use and once you get used to things it's pretty amazing. I'd never give up CS6 and can't wait to upgrade to CS7.

Elements: Erp. It's actually a really nice program c: My friend sells web design services and uses Elements and it does her pretty well. So, you'd be fine with that, I think. Never hurts to have an extra program, though, if you've got the room in case there are some tools you don't have in one that you need ;] ... Program hoarder.

...that sounds like a seriously messed up GIMP, which version was it? I've never had any such issues. (or any at all, for that matter... and I'm running it on linux most of the time [which is prone to breaking everything] )

I can't even remember, dude. It was a REALLY long time ago. It was back when I was around 12 or 13 ... I'm now 19, haha.

www.pixlr.com/ is a great web-based photo editor with the same functionality as PS/GIMP.

I need to get a copy of CS6 though.. it looks sexy as fuck!
