Photoshop is such a popular image enhancement tool that it’s also a verb. When people say a digital artist “photoshopped” an image, they mean that the artist used Photoshop to change the way it looks. Some experts refer to Elements as a stripped down version of Photoshop. The Elements user interface is simpler than Photoshop's and designed to make it easier for amateurs to tweak images. Elements has an expert mode that enables power users to view more advanced image correction controls. For example, you can work with blending modes, layers and layer masks similar to the way you do in Photoshop. You can also add text to images and paint over them in Expert mode. Elements is a powerful image enhancement tool, but it does not have a Pen tool, Curves or some other useful controls found in Photoshop.
