Version 1.1
Review by BelleAim

Upgraded from PSE 10 and loving it! - I recently upgraded my computer and I figured it was time to replace my old version of PSE 10 to the newest one. I haven’t had any issues with this app so far and I chose the app version over the retail version so that it could easily be reinstalled on my computer if needed. I mainly use this for editing photography for my jewelry business and editing thumbnails for my YouTube channel and it has everything I need for those tasks. There was not much learning curve between 10 and this version. I definitely recommend this app if you’re interested in a light version of photoshop. Thank you PS team! I hope you keep the app up to date as time goes on :)

Version 1.0
Review by Shorebreeze

steep learning curve and invasive - As soon as I downloaded PE 2018 to my Mac, my previous versions PE 10 and 12 stopped working. There is nothing intuitive about PE2018. It keeps taking me to their website. I have used every version of PE from 1 through 12. This 2018 version requires relearning everything. I could not get a layer to arrange properly. I could not add a person from one photo into another easily and have that layer move down and behind. When I tried, the new layer disappeared. It is very frustrating. The old versions were so much easier. Copy, Place, Arrange down. I am giving up on Photoshop Elements. I hope I find something that works as well as the old versions did. This was a $60 mistake,.

Family Sharing? Invalid Info - App is great! Only problem is on the description of the app it reads “Family Sharing: Yes” but charged my family twice because two people have downloaded the app? Is that inaccurate? How can I talk to someone about this issue regarding a refund? If we can fix that issue I would love to give a five star review!

Review by xBigFatzx

Really powerful software - somewhat difficult for a novice to learn - The software is very good and pretty powerful. I am accustom to an older, simpler version of this program which unfortunately no longer works on anything beyond windows 7 (and doesn't work at all on a MAC). Steep learning curve if your coming from a veery old version (probably not so much if you have kept up with the times.).

Too Advanced of program for me - I just purchased the app on christmas eve and after using it for about an hour or so i am finally giving up. This app looks like it can do absoutely amazing things, but it is WAY too advanced for me and i would really like to return it. please let me know how i can do this.

Review by RDMartin35

Editor unusably slow - Installed on new iMac with High Sierra. Worked OK for about a month, but suddenly the Editor got so slow with constantly whirling little pinwheel that it is for all intents and purposes useless. I haven’t consulted cxustomer service yet but the fact that I must is very discouraging. Based on my experience with “help” is that they don’t listen and just go through a mindless algorithm of things I’ve already done. I resent having to start down that path with a new program on a new computerd with a new operating system.

Review by Stingerbee24

Crashes - Everytime I try to do “Auto Smart Tone” the program comes up with an error message or more common that not it crashes. It’s a good app otherwise but its frustrating when it crashes that often.
