Retouch and fix your photos either manually or by using the embedded options, manage and sort your images or create scrapbooks, collages, slideshows and more. Share the results on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.

To me, Adobe Photoshop Elements is something like the little brother of Photoshop. It's not as abundant in what it lets you do, but the features it does have, it makes its own.
Photoshop Elements looks exactly like regular Photoshop at first glance. The interface design is basically the same, and if you have any experience with Photoshop, you will feel right at home. There are, of course, fewer features and options available, for example, color models are unavailable when editing a picture, restricted work modes for some tools are absent, and you can't work with separate channels, some filers are missing, etc. Hence the title of the little brother of Photoshop - it does most of the same, but doesn't do all.

However, Photoshop Elements has its own advantages. The Cookie Сutter tool can be used to cut very specific parts and figures out of a picture in an advanced mode. There's also the Smart Brush, a tool to apply effects with a brush. Photomerge includes new features for combining several pictures. It even has nice little things like automated file splitting.

Finally, Photoshop Elements includes social media integration. Users can share edited pictures and post them on social networks.

Basically, Adobe Photoshop Elements is the right tool for people who want to use Photoshop, but don't want to deal with its price and difficulty.

I've been using Elements 11 for years and I love it! Pretty easy to use.

I bought the Elements 10 and didn't like it and was dumb enough to buy the Elements 2020 thinking it may have been improved. I used Elements 6 for years and enjoyed it. You have more control over your edits. I can't even get the crop tool to work in these latest versions. I can't get the disk to install the 6 and of course Adobe won't help. I would do a trial version before purchasing these later versions, especially if have used Elements 6 and before. I read some of the other comments. I haven't had any issues with the Elements 6.

Joyce, i have a new computer, and I am not able to install my Elements 6 disk, I love the old one.
Thank you, tell me this before I bought another one.

I loved the MUCH earlier versions, too. After 7, they were no longer worth using. As Joyce said, total lack of control! Cost too much these days for such little abilities.
