im currently trying to get my mother set up with linux, and im trying to find all the software she is used to using, and needs to have available all on linux. she has bought the product. but even if there is an Open Source Alternative that would be fine as well.

The Gimp is the open source alternative you're looking for.

If you truly do need PhotoShop Elements, look into Wine or CrossOver Office.

*created a new account for mothers computer so she has access to*
thank you for your help! i looked at Gimp and found its not exactly like Elements, but will do for some of the image editing needs.
i see GIMP more as an image manipulator, but i need something more along the lines of photo manipulator like removing red-eye, cleaning up pictures, changing color/tint/brightness of an image.

im actively looking through for some image programs at the moment.

The gimp will do all of that stuff you mentioned. There are even some small tutorials for it on their web page. Don't underestimate the gimp.

Yes--GIMP and Photoshop are the same class of SW. Image editor and Photo Editor are really not different things.

In terms of capability, GIMP is in between PS element and full-up PS---but closer to full-up (And it's free!!)

AND--of course--congratualtions on making the move.

Me to want to run Photoshop Elements under Linux. Not becaus the editor but becaus the organiser that came with version 4.0.
I have looked at a similar program for linux the one that matches Elements the most is called DigiKam but it lacks a lot of features.
I tryed to install Photoshop Elements in Cross over and in wine but didn't make it in either of them.
