I think Photoshop Elements is pretty basic and definitely less expensive than the full Photoshop package.

photoshop elements or lightroom is probably the way to go. no need to get the full on professional photoshop for a hobby.

I use photoshop cs6 extended to edit my pics. I bought the student version (much cheaper) But it takes a lot of practece to use it. Lightroom is easyer but its only to edit pictures witch is good if that’s all you want it for, but photoshop extended cs6 you can do much more, like make family cards and invites and stuff like that. It’s a good investment.

I still use CS2 (I bought it years ago) and I can do whatever I want with it. It’s old, but it gets the job done.

I edit pictures and make graphics as a hobby and can’t deal with anything except the full-on Photoshop. I tried Elements once and a lot of the features I use weren’t included. But everyone is different. I know people who happily use PS Elements, people who use GIMP, people who use Paint Shop Pro.

I currently have Adobe Creative Cloud, the complete version that includes all applications and is $50 a month. There is also a single application version that is $20 a month – he could download PS with this, have access to all updates and new versions, and some of the trainings. There is a free 30 day trial too.

There are also A BILLION tutorials online for Photoshop… I have learned the Adobe products just through online tutorials, the program help, and experimentation. I have a lot of fun with them.

I just went through similar reserach myself!  Get photoshop elements and photoshop lightroom.  I went through amazon.com and got both programs for under 120$.  The full version photoshop (I was told) is complicated to learn and is more for graphic design.  My husband loved the gift and it’s so much better than the Corel program I bought him a few years ago.
