    Hi,
    I have PS 7, had it for years, I am not a graphics designer, I dabble in
    other things, using PS7 as a favorite tool. I was recently given Photoshop
    elements 3 by a friend at work (birthday). Any problem having both installed
    and using both (not at the same time I guess)? Reason, I ask is PS elem
    seems to have some tasks scripted or automatic. I'm on winxp sp2. Do a lot
    of work in MS Office for biz and the othe for enjoyments
    Thanks

    First, I do not have any ver of PSE, so this is speculation on your exact
    circumstance. However, I usually have at least two different ver of PS on most
    workstations, especially if I have a heavy workload and there has been a
    significant interface change. On one workstation, I have three vers. going
    back to v4, as one client often requests output, that only v4 can satisfy. All
    vers. have the same plug-ins, etc. and I've never had any problem with them
    living side-by-side. I doubt that you will encounter any problems.

    Hunt, I tend to agree and was looking for opinions like yours-from
    knowledgeable PS users.
    Thanks

    l I too have 3 versions of PS installed on the same machine... I have
    also had PS Elements installed with PS 7.0 No problemo. The each
    install to their own directory under the general heading of ADOBE. Of
    course I would recomend and up grade of PS 7.0 to PS Creative Suite 2
    for more bells and whistles than you can figure out how to use on your
    own for over a year.

    Cheers,

    Randy
