Re: filmscanners: PS 6.0 v. PS 5.0 LE v. Jasc Paintshop Pro 7.02

I must be "intellectually challenged."  In spite of all I read about
how easy Elements is to use, I can't seem to find my way to the things
I'd like to learn to do.  I downloaded the sample version, tried it,
said Argh!!! and went back to LE.  I can even find ways to do simple
things (histogram + level adjust) in the trial version of 6.0 (just
like in LE).  I haven't found Elements useful in leading me past that

Am I missing something?  Do I just have to try harder?  The little
I've seen of Paint Shop Pro looks a lot easier to use than Elements.

And, it's just the "high end" that intrigues me.  I have the feeling
that PS 6.0 lets one be the Spielburg of stills.  Is that so?  Or am I
just an idiot?
