I just purchased/installed WL Elements 9 (upgrade from WLE8) I have to say that this version seems to behave immediately much better than WLE8 with better response to any and all commands. The PDF manual is also what it should be, logical and easy to navigate. The Master section is different but I love the montage preset idea and also the rendering window that opens so I will make some adjustments. Hm, I never had WL6 so I am not sure on the ‘more intuitive’ aspect but it I will give it some time. Immediate reaction - WOW - this is beautiful software, PG, thank you!!
