Cool I bought it. I had the "boxed" version and felt they sort of just let us go, and only catered to the mac store purchases. So I figured I better get it before the price goes up. I just poke around see what things do. I don't even really know what the heck I am doing, but it's fun for me at times.

A great app at a great price. Something that seems to be becoming harder about Photoshop these days.

I don't know how 2.0 differs much from 1.6.7. I use, but I find myself using it much more for the standard things like cropping, improvement and resizing, sharpening and such. I also have PSE, which takes way longer to start up, but is easier for changing color, filling in of surfaces, using letters in a picture and such. I sometimes use The Gimp in a Linux environment, but that's a drag. Things are so much different then! Short and good, a good program for a great price!

I use iPhoto for cropping etc.
I downloaded a 30 day trial of pixelmator. It is very cool for $20. I want to try elements 10 as well, because I want to do all the other things you find elements does better. Perhaps pixelmator won't fit into my needs even if it is cool and affordable.

Well, those things can be done with Pixelmator, the only thing is, I'm so used to PSE and how things works, that I did not make much effort to try it in Pixelmator.

I'd like to add some text like and bubble clouds like Comic Life allows. I'd purchase Comic Life, but it seems unreasonably priced for a product that does so little.

Basically I'd like to come up with some fun pictures. More for my GF than myself. She posts stuff on Facebook all the time. I can have some fun doing the editing. Take peoples bodies/faces, put them in funny situations, add captions. I'd also like to do a few black and white, with colored roses, beauty shots etc.

Yeah, Photoshop Elements 10 offers a lot for the money too. Plus, they have a 30-day trial now.

I'll have to give it a try as well. Hopefully I can remember my Adobe login info. Pixelmator was an effortless download, they did ask for any info... Classy. I also like how Pixelmator set up their website. If has a lot of useful info. but it's well organized and easy to navigate. Elements would have to offer quite a bit more (things I'd actually use) for me to pay 5X the price. It's funny because both offer a lot for the money, but still...
