    I'm getting the small photoshop as a present...what is missing from the full version?

    also, can someone tell me something really cool to do, that's easy, so that I can have fun while I learn the basics?

    Pick your nose!!!!;)

    But seriously, PE2 is a great program, I could never afford or justify Photshop so can't tell you what is different PE2 does everything you could possibly want to do to graphics and it makes reasonable very quick web pages at the touch of a button.

    The forum over at adobe is full of very professional graphic artists that rave about the program but loose me with their techno babble... :eek:

    I am using Photoshop Elements for a year now and still discover new features. Basically it is the same as Photoshop. What is missing compared to the full version is for instance:
    -Actions Palette and Recordable Actions
    -Paths
    -Channels
    -CYMK Support
    -Editable Vector Shapes
    Since I don't even know exactly what that is I don't miss it so much. You can find a good comparison here .

    Just play around with it, I don't doubt the 'cool' ideas will come to you just by themselves. You can as an example make some panoramas using Photomerge, a feature not included in the full version (as far as I know - too expensive for me).

    Have fun with it! :)
