Yes, there is a huge difference. I still work in 7.0 just because I chose to buy a new camera rather than CS2, but that will be my next big purchase. I love actions and have a lot of them that I have found and created that help me with my work flow. You can't run actions in Elements. There are a few other features as well, but that one is the major one for me.
There's a difference in features and stuff. Elements doesn't allow you to control the degree of certain effects (shadows etc.) but i've learned to work around them. CS2 is something I really want but I can't really afford at the moment so I make do with elements for the time being
I just got back on the met, I don't really like it right now I just dumped our clinic (they wanted an advanced payment for my appointment of $350 for a consultation. umm no) so dh is on the hunt for insurance that will take me so I can finally see a doc without worrying about the price.
Anyways, I've been drooling over CS2 but DH is reluctant to buy it because I would only be using it to tinker with personal photos and I spend enough time on that already Plus, now I want a lensebaby so CS2 might be a ways off.
From what i've understood, elements is easier to get a handle on that CS2. There are some actions (I can get you a link if yoiur interested) that work with Elements, but not near as many. I think it kind of depends on if your prepared to drop the chunk of change that CS2 costs. :lol I've heard you can pretty well do whatever you want in elements with a few plug ins (curves, etc), but there is a learning curve to it.
