I was sent an email from OnOne with the following link:-

http://www.ononesoftware.com/landing/ultimate-experience/?v=2&utm_campaign=Ste8_Own_0214&utm_medium=email&utm_source=105_Own

$99.00 + 20% VAT for Europe, but still works out to less than 75.00 for the whole suite.

Never heard of this. Do you have experience with it?

My impression over the years is that it's a viable alternative to such as Corel PSP, ACDSee, and PS Express.

To me, it's appeal is a relatively low learning curve and a well organized and intuitively managed set of controls. The  plug-in or standalone type program access makes it versatile. Has many of the functions and usefulness of Nik plug-ins.

If I didn't have such a long history with Corel I'd seriously consider the OnOne products as a replacement for layer based PP. The fractal-based enlargement process is useful and effective. If ACDSee appeals to you take a look at this too.

Hank, it looks very good but like you I have been using one program, PS Elements, for many years and it's use has been second nature. I have gone from version 1 to 11 with no problems. I did however pick up ACDSee 7 Pro on a sweetheart deal and I'm experimenting with it.

I use Lightroom/Topaz/Photoshop Elements 12 almost at the moment but when this offer came up I thought it worth a shot. I haven't begun to use it yet. I'm hoping to find some of the clever stuff from Photoshop in it.

I've used Perfect Resize Pro, now incorporated into Perfect Photo Suite, ever since it began life as Genuine Fractals. It facilitates upsizing images with not much degradation to 40" x 60", perfect for large banners, which I can get printed on vinyl in Spain for around 30.00 per square metre.
