    An absolute beginner after help with what may be a simple request.

    Have photos of products i produce in one colour and would like to edit the photos to show how my products would look in different colours.

    Can this be achieved with Photoshop Elements?

    I look forward to your replies

    Elements will do just about everything a photographer needs. Photoshop adds features a graphic artist might want on top. But "Elements is very complete.

    Also if you find you DO want Photoshop Adobe will let you upgrade and (mostly) apply the cost of Elements. So there s nothing to be lost in starting with Eements. The user interfaces are very much alike too.

    One tip. Buy a Wacom tablet. You will need it for photo editing and it come with a free copy of Elements, that is upgradable.

    Try it first

    The best thing about Adobe products is that you can try it before you buy it. Just go to the Adobe website and you can download Elements to try free for 30 days. You can do the same with other programs such as Lightroom or Photoshop. If you like it then you just purchase the product key and you are set.

    Also, since you are a beginner, you should watch some tutorials on Photoshop. The ones that worked best for me are from PhotoshopUserTV and Creative Cow. Google it and have fun!

    I thought they no longer offered those upgrade deals? I remember them from prior tablets, and even then the offers had limited durations. It would be something like if you bought a tablet, you could upgrade to full photoshop from the bundled elements for $350 or so. This also precedes photoshop extended.
