Forum Question: iPhoto 09 vs Adobe Photoshop Elements v8

Is there a comparison chart somewhere that compares the 2 programs mentioned in the title? I have them both on my Mac Pro. Can you in a nutshell recommend which is better at organizing files on your HD?

Thanks, Russ

    I don’t have Elements 8, but I do have the full version of Photoshop. Unless there is something new in v8, Elements doesn’t organize files at all. iPhoto is a program that both organizes your photos and gives you some editing abilities. Photoshop is strictly an editor.

    I meant to say Adobe Bridge, which I have as part of Adobe Photoshop Elements v8. I have never used it for photo management. Looks like a neat program.

      Ah, Bridge is a whole different thing. I haven’t played with it much. But I would imagine that iPhoto is still the best program to use to organize your photos — that is exactly what it is meant for. Bridge looks like it is more for professionals organizing media files for projects.
