The Review:
Adobe Premiere 4
I started the review with the Adobe Premiere because I had to do some video editing for a local company and so I had the perfect test to carry out. I am not the type of person to read manuals or books on how to do things because I want to see how the average person uses a program and I need to see how easy it is to use. This is important because if I cant figure a program out with all my experience using hundreds of programs then how could a novice use it without difficulty.

Well the program is very easy to use and all you need is common sense. You open files, drag them to your work area, you cut and splice and insert title pages and the program runs very smoothly.

I am not here to give you step by step instructions but rather advise you that Adobe has done it again! They have a very easy to use video editing program that the average computer user can actually use and enjoy using.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 6
As I mentioned in previous reviews of various Photoshop's and this one is no different. I LOVE Photoshop ' any version. This one is simply more affordable for the average user and so I would most certainly recommend it to everyone. The Elements version helps the user with not just basic editing of pictures such as red eye correction and photo clean up but quite a bit more for the adventurous photo editor in every one. This version lets you create an online album that can be shared with others but then that is available through other programs as well but when it comes down to it this program has some truly innovative photo manipulation tools that one can fall in love with at the drop of a hat.

All I can say is ' no questions asked- run out and buy it. I said it is the cats meow and I don't lie!!!!!
