ThinkCamera have reviewed the Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 and write;
“As someone who has used a photo editing package before I found Photoshop Elements 5.0 quite easy to use. The help files are good although it takes a bit of flitting from one help page to another to find exactly how to do something. Someone new to using an editing package should find it useful straight away using the Quick Edit system. For those who want to make more subtle or different changes to their photographs the full edit mode is also quite easy to find their way around. There are more features than you could shake a stick at and at under £60 from the internet it’s good value. With all the tutorials on Think Camera and those you can find in many photography magazines no one should struggle. “

WhatPCUK have reviewed the Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 and write;
“There are lots of simpler, cheaper photo-editing programs out there that are more suitable for beginners. But for enthusiasts and those wanting to get the most from their digital photos, Adobe Photoshop Elements is still one of the best applications around – and it’s all the better for its new features…Overall Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 provides a strong set of organising and editing tools suitable for photography enthusiasts, but it could prove to be a case of overkill for the average casual snapper”

CNET have reviewed the Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 and write;
“Overall, there seems to be more and better creative content in Photoshop Elements 5, and it’s generally easier to work with. The organizer and photo downloader have also taken a step forward in elegance and usability. Ironically, however, the imaging tools don’t seem to be keeping up. All four of the new additions–black-and-white conversion, curve-based correction, distortion correction, and a different take on sharpening–try new interfaces for old problems. But, at least to me, the approaches don’t make the operations much easier or better. Just different.”

PCMag have reviewed the Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 where they rate the software 4.5/5 and write;
“Adobe has taken a good thing and made it even better. Version 5 of Photoshop Elements is packed with exciting features in both its Organizer and Editor components, making this an essential upgrade for existing users and the best choice for novices looking for a complete digital-imaging solution.” have reviewed the Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 where they rate the software 5/5 and write;
“Photoshop Elements incorporates many of Photoshop’s powerful features without being too overwhelming to the novice user. How-Tos help users get started, and automated features simplify many tasks, such as posting online photo galleries and stitching multiple photos to create panoramas. The user interface is friendly to beginners, but not “dumbed-down” to the point that it frustrates experienced users. Photoshop Elements also includes a powerful, integrated photo organizer, making it a perfect all-in-one solution for the majority of digital photographers.”

ITReviewsUK have reviewed the Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 and write;
“In short, Photoshop Elements 5 is a real triumph. And if you’re in the mood to treat yourself, it’s available in a double pack with the also-strong Premiere Elements 3 for just £30 more. There’s some good improvement over version four, and when you consider that online shopping can knock another tenner off the price, it’s a cracking tool that offers really good value.”
