    I am new to digital editing. I have already purchased Microsoft Digital
    Image Pro 10. How does this software compare to Adobe Photoshop Elements
    3.0? I would like to have opinions before I spend a lot of time learning.

    You might have wanted to gather those opinions before buying. ;) Anyway,
    Photoshop is the de facto standard, and Elements is inexpensive enough for
    the average joe. I've read decent things about the MS program, but nothing
    that makes me think it would have been the better purchase than Elements,
    and Elements continues to get all the kudos by those same reviewers anyway.

    If you haven't unwrapped the box yet, see if you can exchange it. If you
    have, you probably can't return it anyway, so why solicit opinions at this
    point unless you're willing to junk it?

  4. This isn't as mean as it sounds, but did you buy MS DIP at a cost club?
    Microsoft has an annoying habit of raiding the software of other developers.
    They wait for third-party developers to do the skutwork, then they swoop in
    and buy
    the company or buy crippled software (Zipping software and cd burning, just
    to name two examples).

    I think the most annoying thing about Microsoft is their "wizard" mentality.
    A wizard for this, a wizard for that... seems like the one extreme is
    Microsoft for Beginners and the other is Adobe for people with a lot of time
    to invest.

    Adobe blows MS away for photo editing. I have used both.
