Any chance you could do a long term review of PSE. I have tried to use it several times, and while the interface for editing is great and user friendly, the overall quality of the software leaves much to be desired. I find it to be very unfriendly for multiple users on the same machine (eg husband and wife with a desktop), and the thumbnail cache and organiser seem to be bug ridden as I have to delete the thumbnail cache after almost every edit. I store all photos on a Windows Home Server box so I don't think I'm asking the earth here. I won't even talk about the dropping of simple MAPI from versions 7 onward which means you can't email a photo from Thunderbird.





Cheers

Man am I out of touch with this image editing stuff. Some of those effects, to me, were bordering on Hollywood movie fare. I'm really impressed by the seamless bridging of the Colosseum pictures.

It's no surprise the effects are bordering on Hollywood. The panorama technology is virtually the same as is available in the professional version of Photoshop, a £600 app and the industry standard in image editing. Adobe essentially just carried it over and made it a little easier to use.
