I just learned that I need to upgrade from PSE 2019 to 2023. I have also been using Lightroom for photo editing. Should I consider purchasing the PSE/Premiere Elements package instead of Lightroom? I don't edit videos or create slide shows.
Hi Angela. Why do you think you might need the Elements bundle that includes Premiere Elements? If you don't edit videos or want a more robust slideshow editor than Photoshop Elements already provides, I can't think of any reason for you to buy both.
If your question is comparing Elements to Lightroom, that is an entirely different question and requires you to consider your own editing needs. Since you already have Elements 2019 and have already used Lightroom, I don't know what advice we can add.
I'm sorry if I'm being pedantic here:
Elements 2023 has added or improved features since Elements 2019. You can check it out with a 30 day free trial available here.
Thank you so much for your response. That does clear a few things up for me. I was not explaining myself well last night and I am still in the learning phase of PSE. I am using that program to create digital memory pages, and have not explored the photo editor much. I have been using presets that I like in Lightroom to edit photos. In the Premier Elements description it refers to photo editing capabilities, and I was wondering about those. I think I will just upgrade to 2023 PSE and keep my Lightroom subscription. I appreciate your comments!
