Well it's not going well, I'm having "issues" getting it to install, something I've never had before with the full versions. It goes so far and stops on the install, I'm going to have to try from a disk I think, I suspect the download version is corrupted or something.
I'm also struggling for time, I'm in the middle of teaching a 3 day wedding course, so preping stuff for that each evening.

God bless you on keeping those balls in the air. It is distrubing when a software will not load properly. Especially when you have gone down the list multiple times to make sure you have everything right to do so. I would love to be in one of your classes.

Well I've had a heck of a job getting it to install, even from disk, no idea why, tried 4 different computers (even different OS) before I managed to get it working eventually.

Well whats new, the interface has changed again, this time it's back to the light grey option, why they can't find something that works and leave it I don't know, having to relearn a software with every update seems a bit silly to me. Not helped by the big icons.

Theres a few new things, like the 3 options for editing, quick, guided, and expert. The catalogue has been improved with new tabs. They have added a proper vignette tool at last. Selection options are improved, and theres a few new filters.

Sadly the RAW editor still only has the 3 tabs, so still a very limited range of raw options, that said it does have the new 2012 process so the image quality is much improved.

Overall verdict. Well, a nightmare to install (and it seems I'm not the only one either) I prefer the interface colour to the very dark older version in 10, but I don't like the big icons.
Only reason for switching I can see is the better raw processing.

Now at this point there should be screencaps, but every time I tried it crashed elements, so I gave up. I'm really glad I use CS6, thats so much easier.

Egad, if CS6 is easier to use than a version of Elements Adobe has really missed the boat.

It's probably because I'm used to photoshop proper, I hardly ever use elements Victor, but the biggest issue I had was it just didn't want to install, and it wasn't crazy about running either.
It seems very "buggy" to me, and I really don't understand the need to totally change it's look with every version.
I don't know how well the beta testing went, I stopped doing it for Adobe a few years back after having a lot of trouble with I think it was CS2 or CS3? (you couldn't install the proper version after having the beta on a computer) but judging from the problems they had with lightroom 4 I'm guessing it wasn't enough.
