I have the full blown version (necessary for my job) so it's hard for me to know what Elements has. So for anyone who has Elements, if it has the Clone Stamp located on the toolbar, The color balance section under Adjustments, and at least the filter called "noise", then it's worth it to fix any of your old photos.
"Color Balance" is an adjustable sliding bar for all 6 major colors. If your photo has lots of magenta hues like the ones you posted, you slide the balance bar slowly away from magenta toward green. Then once the photo begins to look normal but may now be a bit more green than you want, you slowly slide the yellow bar toward blue and voila...your colors should now look normal again.
The Clone Stamp is a little trickier to explain here but what it does is clones the areas surrounding an imperfection and covers up any scratches to look exactly like the area right around it. It really is a valuable tool and worth learning.
And finally, the noise filter has a feature called despeckle and also dust and scratches. Just clicking once on either can take a grainy photo and smooth it out. Then if it appears too smooth, click on sharpen and you should be done.
So whoever has Elements can check these features out and let you know. I could bring you an older full blown version of PhotoShop but you'd have to wait until early December.
Life is not a child's game of follow the Leader. Instead, life is more about finding one's own purpose in life....your life's plan, and then making a positive difference on earth.
