I have played around a little with both the Elements 10 and CS5 trials and am torn between the two. I shoot exclusively in RAW and I much prefer the RAW processor that comes with CS5, and I can get the student edition for under $200. My issue is that I try to get as much right in the camera before I take the shot and find that most of the time all my adjustments can be done in the RAW processor with very little need for Photoshop editing. While using the trial all I used Photoshop for after making some adjustments to the RAW image was to add a layer or two. My question is does the RAW processor that comes with Lightroom 3 perform similar to the one supplied with CS5? I can get the student edition of LR and Elements 10 together for less than the discounted CS5. I find CS5 incredibly confusing but there are plenty of books and video turorials to help me learn, but as a somewhat serious hobbyist I feel it may be overkill since CS5 is geared more toward graphic desing and less toward photography. There are many creative things I would love to be able to do with my shots as I often order large prints from Mpix.com and display them around my house. I don't want to outgrow Elements if I can get CS5 for such a deep discount. But at the same time Elements seems to offer much of the same ability at a fraction of the price. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
