Hi guys , I've never used photoshop before but I'm doing a course at college that involves photoshop so I thought I would buy elements to get used to the basic functions / features. I have just a couple of questions if you will be so kind as to answer them. will this suit my needs for basic image manipulation and graphics design? can I use Photoshop cs3 files(pc) with elements 6 (mac) ? Is elements 6 good and does it run well on mac's? Does this offer many features or is it really cut down from cs3?? Edit: One last thing , I need to be able to make graphics with images like posters etc , will this suffice? Thanks.
