Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 vs. Adobe Photoshop CC

Photoshop vs Creative Cloud

Trying to decide if you need the streamlined simplicity of Photoshop Elements or the comprehensive collection of Photoshop CC? This guide can help you decide.


What's in Common

Both Photoshop Elements and Photoshop CC allow you to manipulate photos in all the basic ways.

  • Manipulate color
  • Crop images
  • Fix flaws (red eye, dust on the lens, and so forth)
  • Draw with pen or pencil
  • Add text
  • Move people or objects within the image

Photoshop CC has these features and many more, including support for more color modes and image formats, 3D images, vector images, and motion graphics.


Which One Do I Need?

If you need to perform basic image editing, organize your photos for quick access, and post them online, Photoshop Elements will likely have everything you need.

If you need to work with very high-resolution images, have granular control over how you edit them, and prepare them for use online and in print, Photoshop CC has you covered.
