(I know, it's not audio software but this forum is supposed to be for software so I hope it's ok that I post this here.) I was looking at Adobe Photoshop Elements because I need some sort of at least semi-professional image editing tool. The features I need the most are Layers, the Lasso tool and I'd like to be able to create animated GIFs. Anybody tried it yet? Can you confirm that it's capable of what I need? Or can you suggest anything else? The free tools (like GIMP) don't appeal to me that much. I guess I want something with support in case I ever need that. Ultimately I'd go for the real Photoshop if it wasn't so damn expensive... I'm on a Mac. Thanks for your tips.
