    “The France?!” Having a Miss North Carolina moment?

    Thanks to Dr. Brown! He is truly an Adobe Master.

    Wow.. looks like you spoke a day too soon. It appears that Adobe is releasing Photoshop Elements 6 after all!

    Philip beat me to it….I just listened to your advice not to “hold your breath” on Elements 6 and that was the first news I saw this morning. I can’t wait to hear someone’s review. I’m ready to buy an editor and was looking at Pixalmator, but paying the upgrade price (I have a copy of Elements) Photoshop is $69.00. It sounds like it will have some very cool features too.

    Just to back up what you said Adam about Elements although I’ve done it slightly differently and cheaper, I have actually loaded windows XP under boot camp and loaded Photoshop Elements in XP I’ve found an app macdrive and connected to my Mac partition and loaded the photo’s back into Elements, this is a temp fix until Elements 6 for Mac or I find an alternative..

    Just listened to show and laughed out loud when Adam blew off Adobe – not that I would’ve disagreed before they announced Elements 6. Just thought it funny that Dr. Brown – from Adobe – gets Adam into the keynote, then Adam slams Adobe a bit, before Adobe comes through with E6. That’s the kind of irony we all try to avoid – better luck next time Adam!
