    Thanks for the links Rodney. I've seen a few reviews of the beta, and I wonder if anything is significantly different.

    [edit - bah! judging from the publishing date, those aren't reviews of the released product either]

    I was also going to ask whether anyone here at MTAU is using it yet, but that might be a bit premature.

    Mac version probably won't be available in Australia until 2 weeks from now.

    Given you can save 20 bucks by downloading from the US store rather than the Aussie one, does anyone forsee any problems? I doubt I will need to access phone support (and if I do, skype will no doubt be suitable to dial them toll free).

    Why is the full version of Photoshop CS3 464MB to download, and Elements is a whopping 1.2GB?

    I decided not to be a cheapskate and purchased from the Aus store.

    First Look review on Ars Technica. A mixed bag - the reviewer hates the look, complains about the integration (or lack thereof) with iPhoto, but loves the performance of the image editor, ending up saying "just go buy it".

    Had a look at this.
    Is this the first app that's 10.5.1 only?

    I think they say "buy it" if you have an intel mac. Not much reason to get for the old G5 users.

    The change in the interface looks very unmac. What were they thinking?

    The only real change to the underlying operations is the use of curves. That would be useful.

    The photomerge stuff might be used once in a while.

    I use this program every day for scanning bits and pieces and resizing photos.

    I'm not sure the "features" are worth upgrading from PSE 4. I won't be racing out to get this version.

    Hi Rodney

    I have installed on the last of the iMac 17inch Intels, C2Duo 2Ghz. So far it seems good. I haven't done much more than edit a few pics from iPhoto so far. It is very quick to open and editing is speedy.

    I read the Ars T. review mentioned in an earlier post. The points raised probably are valid. Still, I paid $86 (edu. pre order) for what seems to me a significant upgrade. I am happy with it.

    Cheers

    How would you rate the integration with iPhoto? Is it best to use iPhoto as the image library, and Elements as the editor? Or does Elements have its own catalogue?

    I wait 18 months for PSE 6 and then I find out it will not work unless your mac has at least 64 MB VRAM, of course my mac has 32 MB VRAM.

    I have chosen the former, that is, I will use iPhoto as the image library. Macworld have a read-worthy review if interested.

    Thanks for posting the review link. It looks like Adobe Bridge is the image management tool in Elements.
    I've never been particularly happy using iPhoto, and I suppose that having just upgraded to OS X 10.5 (which has a new version of iPhoto) I should re-evaluate it. But the more I look at Elements, the more it looks right for me.

    I signed into Adobe's site, went to the PSE 6 Mac version page, selected download trial, gave them all the info they ask,

    BUT NO MAC DEMO

    only bloody windows

    So I can not even try it to see if it might run with my 32mb vram .

    Rodney9, the downloaded software when purchased does allow for a 30 day trial (choice to register or use trial), and I've read that it is coming.

    Perhaps they are waiting for the initial demand for bought downloads to die down before making it available.

    From an initial play with it on my 24" iMac, 2.4ghz, 2 gig ram I'm liking it. Will test it out properly over the weekend. I think I'll stick with iPhoto rather than set up Bridge.
