Is Photoshop Elements bundled with a scanner?

  Simsy 08:43 27 Dec 2004

Hi folks...

I'm trying to kill 2 birds with one stone.

I want to Photshop Elements, (version 2) for my son, for use on his college arts course. I also may be after a scanner.

I know eBay is a possible avenue, but does anyone know if Photoshop Elements 2 comes bundled with a cheap scanner? The scanner does not have to be especially good quality, but doe snoed tobe cheap, ( £50)

Thanks in anticipation,

This could be a longish search

Different Scanners different S/ware bundles even simliar models from the same maker.
Get the scanner of choice then look for the Software.
But why stick the PSE1?
There are many equivilants - differing desktops maybe but larely the same functions
Photosuite/Paintshop/Ulead/ to name but a few

I bought a Canon Lide 50 and it came with Photoshop Elements 2.0 along with Arcsoft and Scansoft software. Will have to check orders to see where I bought it.

I think, may be wrong though, that you can get PS Elements with a download of Adobe Reader 7.

sorry for delay in replying.

jack, the reason I'm looking for this specific software is because it's what my son uses at college. I want him to have the same at home, rather than something different but similar.

I'll look into all suggestions,
