Both of th­ese pro­grams are well es­tab­lished, Pain­tShop Pro and Pho­to­shop El­e­ments be­ing in their 18th and 14th edi­tions re­spec­tively. El­e­ments is the more pop­u­lar, and uni­ver­sally well known, but both are very sim­i­lar in some re­spects, with guided ac­tions for be­gin­ners, use­ful tools for cat­a­logu­ing your im­ages, and im­pres­sive ranges of so­phis­ti­cated im­age edit­ing fea­tures.

Un­like Adobe’s ‘Cre­ative Cloud’ pro­grams, both are avail­able to buy out­right. On balance, we’d say that Pho­to­shop El­e­ments has the edge, but it’s a close-run thing. 30-day free trial ver­sions are avail­able for both pro­grams, so you could down­load them both and see which suits you bet­ter.
