Photoimpact relatively old program for photo editing
Although this is a relatively old program, I'm still using Photoimpact 4.2 because of its ease of use, speed, and flexibility. The tool panel is easy to get to, and navigation flows very well. It's great for fixing up digitized images from negatives and slides, because the undo feature can go back to I think 6 or 8 steps if you don't like what you've "repaired." Changing dimensions, formats and resolution is very fast, and again, you can undo it quickly. I've never had it crash. When I first got v4.2, I had Windows 98. Now I've got Windows XP, and there are no problems as well. The results I get from using v4.2 are virtually indistinguishable from the results I've gotten from Photoshop 7. I don't do much in terms of special effects, but I've tried stitching images together, and pasting with excellent results. It's a good, solid program made easy for the beginner, and has enough features for the advanced people.

Photoshop: photo editor related
Is PS Elements any improvement, and is spending the money on 7, and then perhaps upgrading to CS worth my hard-earned money. Thanks in advance. 

Why do you want to purchase photoshop 7.0 and then upgrade to CS?? will it save you considerable amounts of money? 

For the beginner, especially digital editing beginners, any program will be hard and need lots of experimentations and learning... I would suggest getting from the beginning the best program they can afford. 

In your situation, I can't see a steep learning curve if you switch from psp to ps because you already know a lot about digital editing, and you got the intuition. Maybe the interface, the location and the amount of options is not the same between the two programs but it doesn't require lots of time to feel confortable. 

I definately don't recommend to go from psp to Elements, usually people progress upward and not downward, and in my opinion psp is more accomplished than Element. but for the complete photoshop version yes go ahead and buy it!!
