“Photoshop Elements 11 brings the biggest changes to Elements since the addition of the Organizer back in version 3,” writes expert author Brundage. “The Organizer component (for organizing and sharing your photos) got a complete revamp, and the Editor (for sprucing up your photos so they look their best) has also been redesigned in addition to getting several useful new features, like new artistic filters and a much easier way to add extra content.”
