If you're interested in purchasing an external digital-imaging application, I highly recommend either Photoshop Elements or Photoshop, depending on your needs and budget. Trust me; I'm not being paid to endorse these products. It's just that if you use either of these Adobe products you'll have the benefit of seamless integration with Album. You can purchase Elements for about $90. Photoshop will set you back a hefty $600 or so. (Ouch.) If you're not sure whether you want to make the investment, download a 30-day, fully-functioning trial version of either program from www.adobe.com.
If you're not familiar with either of these programs, you may wonder which one is appropriate for your needs and why there is such a vast difference between one program that runs about the cost of two dinners out and another that is about the cost of two car payments.
