Runs very well on my imac 24inch alu , not slow at all =)

Even on PC it a was very very slow loading.
On my iMac Intel,I wait at least TWO minutes to load it.
The lesson, if a program not universal binary, not developed in Mac native Cocoa, do not use it. They are all heavy like hell. No place for PE in MAC.
Aperture is much more superior.
Even iPhoto to some extent is also much more pleasant to use for some minor work

Photoshop Elements 6 comes with Bridge. Bridge opens directly from PE6 and is the organizer, tagger, etc. that you are looking for. From within Bridge you can add comments, titles, keywords, just about anything to your photos without opening them. You can also use Bridge without opening PE6 if you just want to organize your images.

Trial for version 6 is here.
Requires registration. File weighs 1.27GB

A terrible experience. Using an Intel iMac to run elements is just no fun. Elements is unfortunately not a universal binary, and the startup time is just too long.
It also looks quite autdated.
I guess that if you're used to photoshop, but need something a bit simpler, elements might be good.
But for just a bit of photo processing take something, anything, else. And if you need more photo processing take Apple Aperture.
Expensive, and not at all like photoshop elements in capabilities, but it just feels so good working with photo's that way...

Lots of power, and good value for money. Does lots of things that iPhoto can't do. But I don't like the interface.

I hate to say it, but the PC version of this is far superior to the Mac version. I bought this for my PC (back before I switched the the Mac) and instantly fell in love with the organizer and innovative hierarchical, drag-n-drop tagging system. Plus the timeline viewer and other tools were far superior even to Picasa (which had just recently been released at the time).

Now, if you've used the Mac version, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about. And that is because the Mac version is simply the PC version MINUS the organizer and tagging system. Sure, the photo editing tools and project tools (cards, calendars, etc) are still there, but the tagging system was nowhere to be found. I was so insanely frustrated that I had to purchase the same piece of software again when I switched to a Mac, and the second time I got only half the product for about the same price. I was even more upset that the hours I had spent tagging my photos was wasted time since iPhoto couldn't properly import them.

Since the Mac version is integrated with iPhoto, I tried re-tagging my entire photo library with it, but iPhoto's tagging system is far too simplistic (and kind of pathetic) compared to the tagging system on the PC version of Elements. After this incident, I doubt I will ever pay for an Adobe product again.
