    This sounds like a fantastic future for us and the PET magazine although i now have cs5 PET and everything within it are still my favorite go to magazine, videos and now discounts. I am not much on blog but i will be paying more attention.
    Love the changes and it is good to know you are adding items for photographers i mainly create but it is always good to expand ones horizons!

    This is very exciting. Looking forward to the all the new stuff. Just wondering, I subscribe to the magazine and obviously on the web. My wife likes to read the magazine and is interested in looking at the tutorials, etc. I wonder if we can log in twice with the same ID at the same time or does she need another ID. I don’t mind paying for a “family Membership.”

    I would like to see more info and how to’s on Lightroom. Would it be possible to see more articles or videos on integration of the two processing software? I regularly use both with other plug ins.

    Brilliant !! I can’t believe how much you are expanding. I love the step into digital scrapping and I love the magazine and the video and article extras that happen in between mag issues.

    Just to let you know that the video downloaded OK and looked great – I am really looking forward to the next issue. For anyone who has problems viewing the videos I used Quick Time on both Windows 7 and Windows 8 with no problems.

    Tried digital anarchy, but it did not seem to work so I guess i better wait for tutorial. It installed fine but and I aded it to the plug-ins, but it does not show up anyplace.

      Timothy, contact Digital Anarchy for help. I found that the installer put a file in the wrong place on my Mac (I cover this in my tutorial) but once I moved it manually, everything worked fine.

    By your use of 800 numbers, I take it that the discounts will only apply to North American Subscribers? Regardless, I think that this and increased Blog activity is a positive way to go so – WAY TO GO!

    I just went to the Digital Anarchy site and it looked very promising. But when I ran the videos to take a look at what they offer, I was not impressed. The guy doing the narration was hard to understand and mumbles a lot. The free Ugly Box had the photo start out already ugly and it took too long to make any changes. I was so turned off that I didn’t even download the free app.

    At the end you say “until then I’m Larry Becker”. Question ; who will you be then?:)

    I viewed episode one. It appears to be just another blog. The format change is video instead of text with download links, but it is still a blog. Underwhelming. Your tutorials and your Community links remain your strongest suits. Keep them strong.

    I use this site for the video tutorials by Matt Kloskowski and Dave Cross etc. I don’t care about the contests and blogs as much as the video tutorials–hope the tutorials keep coming!

    I like the new emphasis on digital scrapbooking. I’d also like to see more projects related to making a great photograph and then embellishing them in Elements, sort of like Larry’s Christmas 2012 tutorials. By the way these always work best for me when they are downloadable tutorials with the cheatsheets.
    Lightpainting, bokeh, and speedlight work are three areas of current interest for me.

    I don’t get the full article neither the links mentioned above.

    Please, be so kind and polish up your web-site.

    Thanks in advance

    This is cool, looking forward to the new stuff and discounts.

    P.S. I’m trying to subscribe to the blog in Google Reader and it’s not working. Can you check your RSS feed?

    P.P.S. Magazine subscriptions are very expensive outside the U.S. because of the extra cost for postage. Could you please consider offering a digital-only subscription?

    Thanks for the info about PET news. I have a topic that I’d like to learn more about. I often create photomerge panoramas and go from lightroom 4 to photoshop elements 9 to do this. When I ‘save as’ the new panorama as a psd, what is the easiest way to import it into lightroom? I noticed that it didn’t work when I had the lightroom import dialog set to convert to DNG. I got an error message saying that it would only convert raw files. It did work when I chose ‘add’. When would I use ‘copy’?. Since so many people use lightroom and elements together, I thought it would be good to know this. also, can I change my import preset to say ‘add’ just for the photoshop elements psd photos and have a different preset for getting photos from my camers’s sd card?

    Unable to receive download. Quicktime logo displayed initially than logo fades. Any suggestions as to what is wrong?

    I have had no problems with tutorials up till now.

    Looking at the March/April Magazine I saw with interest you have begun to write about the relationship of elements to lightroom. I would like to see more of that particularly the movement of photos from lightroom to elements and back to lightroom. Your workflow on that would be appreciated.

    I would like to second Robert ! Perhaps a technical column where people could share their challenges with such things as software glitches, lock ups, and their solutions. This can be a great source of frustration and although there are faq’s and tech support from the providers they often don’t always have solutions or want to be bothered with some of the more devilish problems.

    I was surprised to see growing coverage being given to Lightroom – after all, this is Photoshop ELEMENTS Techniques! Though I bought Lightroom 3, I have not followed to Lightroom 4 due to its inability to run on Windows XP systems. Anyway, hopefully your drive to be “new and different” wont lead you away from the reason I was attracted to PET in the first place: Elements!

      Yes, I agree. I love this magazine and website. It is a wealth of info for me. Once in a while I can understand that you would want to discuss plug-ins and their uses to PSE, but I am concerned that the emphasis will now be placed on articles regarding lightroom and other plug-ins. I would love all these plug-ins, but can’t afford them all. Please don’t change the emphasis from PSE, that is the reason I subscribe. Perhaps you could add extra pages to account for the interest in plug-ins that go with PSE, but please don’t replace the articles directly on PSE.

    Please do not loose sight of what you are. This is a Photoshop Elements magazine.

    Discounts and specials are fine (if you live in America) but they are only “fluff”. The real value lies in the excellent videos and articles you have produced over the years.

    I thought maybe I would be the odd man out, but I have to agree that I’d rather see magazine space being used for Elements, not Lightroom. One article I can understand, but please not every issue! Use those pages for what we ALL are using, which is Elements, not just what a handful of subscribers might have.

    • Michele

      March 9, 2013 at 4:03 pm

      Didn’t get this in my first comment, but perhaps videos would be good for those “extra” things like Lightroom and other plug-ins, but then they wouldn’t be taking up magazine space. Then those who are interested in them can come here and still learn, while others can keep enjoying the magazine being focused on just Elements. Just a thought!

      • James

        March 11, 2013 at 3:28 pm

        I like your ideas. Elements and Lightroom are a great fit so why not have Elements mag or website be the go-to place for info and practical skills for both !
