    Heya, ive been using Adobe elements 10 since it came out, and was wondering if it is time to update my software, or go with something completely new!
    Reason i ask is because ive been using my old laptop only for photo editing for about a year now and i want to get something on my new laptop. the free program GIMP has been reccomended to me by friends, is it a good program that offers basics?
    Any and all help appreciated!

    GIMP offers some good basic editing features, but if you're used to Elements I would advise sticking with it. I happen to think Elements is a very good version of PS, though some would disagree.

    GIMP is free but pretty feature packed.

    Photoshop is paid and as a result you get all the features you would ever need with the benefit of direct customer support.

    Paint is actually surprisingly good for basic image manipulation.

    I use GIMP myself.

    I thing photoshop elements is good for basic retouching, editing. If you want more control definetly you want to upgrade to photoshop + lightroom ( the most used) . I sugest these two because you will find the most tutorials, so it will be easyear to learn and there are powerfull to.

    I use Lightroom and Photoshop. I was using Aperture before, but I'm very happy with the upgrade to Adobe.

    I have been using LR 5 and PS CS6 for some time, then had to drop PS for cost reasons, so now I am mostly using LR 6 and sometimes GIMP (mostly for exposure blending). GIMP is less efficient than PS, I particularly noticed this when trying to make selections. It also only supports 8 bit as of now (they have been working on 14 bit for years and it's still not clear when it will be implemented), and I don't particularly like throwing away image data

    I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, which is amazing and has a lot of features .
    I'm not too sure what additional features Adobe Photoshop CC has to offer :ninja:.

    I've always used Photoshop. It's far more flexible than anything else I've used, and has alot more support.

    Photoshop CC 2015. I subscribed to Adobe Creative Cloud for work purposes, but couldn't be without it now. The student discount's very nice and makes a huge difference. I used to pay about £45/month, and now I'm sure it's less than £20/month. I can't remember the last day when I didn't use at least Photoshop or Illustrator for something.
