Is Photoshop Elements bundled with a scanner?

  Simsy 08:43 27 Dec 04

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,

The Visioneer does not appear to come bundled with Elements, it looks like the bundle is,Ulead PhotoExpress 3 and ScanSoft PaperPort Deluxe with built-in TextBridge Pro OCR.Check out the link at:-

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.

Got my copy with a Canon LDE50 scanner from Novatech

I bought mine at Ebuyer but can't find it on site. Found this review below on Google

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,

Photoshop elemente is mormally bundled with Epson scanners. Elemente is a quality programme bundled with quality scanners. saying that epson scanners are not so expensive.
