    Your statement was nothing short of an arrogant pronouncement, that was
    obviously made either because you need more attention. (you have been
    quiet for about three days

    Wha? How can what something is called be "irrelevant"? You wouldn't
    be confused, for example, if someone showed you their new
    "refrigerator" and pulled out their iPhone? If they gave you their
    "icepick address" and what they meant was "email address"?

    You come up with the most bizarre arguments conceivable to defend your
    errors.
    How much sense would it make if we followed your twisted thinking and
    that sentence read "Photoshop used to be called Photoshop and then
    marketing changed the name to Photoshop"?

    What part of Tony's grossly inaccurate analogy was "humor" and was then
    lost in translation?
    It's a very fitting alias Tony used once, it translate to Andreas
    Bullshit. It describes most of his posts and I encouraged him to sign all
    of his posts with it.

    Now, if only you hadn't aptly signed YOUR post with "bullshit", then you
    may have had a chance to try to apply the moniker to me, and not yourself.

    History revisionism as usual.

    Better yet, be told that something could be done in "Photoshop".
    Confirm that by seeing the task done in a video tutorial. Then with
    that knowledge in hand, buy a "$50 copy of 'Photoshop'" only to
    discover that the version of "Photoshop" you own cannot do what you
    want it to, because it is actually "Photoshop Elements", a hamstrung
    version of Photoshop CS6/CC.

    That are only four wheels and steal. (Together with some rubber and plastic

    Your comment was a whoosh, and nospam didn't even realize it. Poor nospam.

    Isn't Grand Cru a game app for my iPhone?

    Well reasoned, nospam.

    Never said it did.
    Snappy comeback. Did you learn that all by yourself?

    He was jealous because nospam was getting a lot of attention. When your
    dog isn't eating, have someone bring another dog near your house.

    Here we go again. It was not an "analogy". An analogy compares two
    things and identifies their similarity. My hyperbolic (exaggeration
    used for emphasis) statement does just the opposite: it suggests that
    the person thinks the things are the same because they are from the
    same source.

    It is inaccurate, though. I doubt if nospam knows that there are
    wines that don't come in a box or with a screw-cap.
    Only if you think I'm the Managing Director of a Swedish computer
    company.

    I was never in that part of the business, except to defend those who
    were alleged to have violated the fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

    it is. for someone who does not need the features in the full
    photoshop, they only need to spend $50 on photoshop elements. they
    could spend more but they'd be wasting their money.
    no, it should never have began.

    that proves what i've been saying all along.
    of course, and that much should be obvious.

    for an item to be a subset of another, they cannot be different.

    i wouldn't be confused, but you clearly would.
    what's bizarre? the product name is whatever marketing wants it to be.

    they decided elements was better than le. that doesn't change what the
    product does. it's just a name.

    what matters is what the user can *do* with it.
    the more you say the less sense it makes, not that it did beforehand.

    then why did you bring it up?
    i take cues from you.

    i notice you aren't denying it either.

    which entirely misses the point.
    imagine that!

    much of what you say is inaccurate at best, but usually completely
    wrong.
    just can't stop with your juvenile digs, can you?

    What is $50? Elements Version 12,11,10,9,8... I see Version 1.0.1
    being offered on eBay for $6.49 BIN. Should the buyer offer $50?

    Do you realize how you have just contradicted yourself?

    You say "they are different" is what you've been saying all along, you
    agree Elements is a subset of Photoshop, and then you say that
    something that is a subset cannot be different.
