    As always, I thumb thru the Elements magazine as soon as I get it out of the mailbox. I love the “Making a Good Impression” article and am pleased with what I have accomplished. I can finally do it without reading the directions.

    I have only one problem. Pressing Command F does not always work for me when starting a new project.

    This is a great issue!

    By the way, what is the story behind this issue’s awesome cover? I looked but could not find any mention of who created it.

    Any chance there might be an “extra” regarding the creation of the cover?

    When did this publication start covering “Lightroom 5″?
    I was interested in the article regarding “Lightroom Vignettes” using Lightroom 5. I don’t have LR 5
    Is LR 5 in my PSE 11?

    I’m a new subscriber and am also confused as to why there is an article on LR techniques. I subscribed to this publication to learn about PSE techniques.

    The PSE articles I’ve seen so far have been very helpful.

    I am all for having LR articles in the magazine. LR and Elements work well together and I find I can do more with a photo using a combination of the two programs’ functions then I can with just Elements.

    I agree with William and Sheri, above. I wish you would stick with articles just on PSE. I know Lightroom is a great product, but the Organizer in PSE still meets my needs. Since you started doing articles on Lightroom, you seem to have dropped any further ones on Organizer. Have you researched how many of your subscribers actually have Lightroom? Maybe William, Sheri and I are in the minority, but I doubt it.

    I agree with Fred. Occassional notes on LR are helpful.

    I would like to know what version of PSE is being used. I am using PSE 11. This article ends at step 2 for me. I will add I am new to PSE and PET.

      Hi Stanley and welcome to PET! All of the articles in the Sept/Oct issue use PSE 11 except for the “Lightroom Vignettes” article which uses Lightroom 4. Which article are you referring to? Let me know exactly what you are having trouble with and we’ll try to help you figure it out :)

    I was among those who resented the attention to Lightroom, but it looks like a powerful tool, and I have finally ordered it. For those of you against the Lightroom coverage, just consider that this makes the PET site useful to more potential subscribers, and with that the potential to be a stronger website. The Lightroom coverage will probably be the reason that I will subscribe for a third year – without it there’s a pretty good chance I would have let my subscription go.

    With the dissatisfaction out there with the whole Adobe Cloud situation, I can foresee a time when more photographers make a move to a Lightroom/Elements workflow, and I think that would be a really good thing for those of us who use Elements.

    Once again PET thanks for all the great info.

    The article I am referring to is Making a Good Impression. My problem is when I click on texturizer I do not get several options to appear. The texturizer filter is applied to my image. the reason I asked what version PSE is being use is filters are under effects and is no filter gallery as such.

    I use Lightroom 4 as all my Photography is in raw format. I use Elements to do the few things Lightroom won’t do. Please continue with the Lightroom articles/tips as you have done in the past.

    I signed up several moths ago for your magazine. I have not recieved one magazine to date. I like the hardcopy magazine so I can go back and reread the article if I need help.
    Thanks you,

    Hello: I am a recent member, the articles are great. I do wish you would stick to Photoshop elements. I am still waiting for the first magazine delivery, looking forward to reading it.
    As I am very new to PSE I am hoping for some good learning opportunities.

    I look forward to every issue and have learned so many techniques I never would’ve discovered on my own. It’s become obvious I need to upgrade to PSE 11 to get the most out of your mag, but please don’t make me have to buy Lightroom also! I’m sure your readers represent a wide range of ability levels and it’s difficult to please everyone, but I hope you concentrate on PSE as there is so much to learn! Kudos to your outstanding experts-
