Adobe Photoshop (the non-Elements version) is a tool with infinite possibilities, but if you're a basic user, probably don't need the full version of Adobe Photoshop but instead the basic version called Adobe Photoshop Elements. As a basic user, Elements certainly fit your budget and requirements for a photo editing suite.
If you want a good editor, Adobe Photoshop Elements may be unbeatable when you consider the power of the program. Overall power and ability isn't what makes this program great, though.
Adobe Photoshop Elements 15.1 is a shareware program and can be used as a demo to try the software until the free trial period has ended. A full version of the program is available after the trial period ends.
