P.I.M. - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I have a PIM compatible camera. Should I install the PIM Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop? Just curious if others recommend it. Second, is there a plug in for Elements 2.0--my cd only has it for Elements 1.0 and it won't install anyway. THANK YOU in advance-I always appreciate the help I get here. jason...

    Jason,
    PIM is sort of a partial solution thus far, I think. It is at its best when taking a memory card from a camera and putting it right in a PIM enable printer , with no user intervention. Once you start editting an image in Elements, its easy to destroy the PIM information, and lose whatever functionality it would give you. I also think I get much better results using a color managed workflow , than the PIM results . I do expect PIM and other "automatic" image print managers will get better and better, in an effort to make image duplication transparent to the user, but it's not reliably there yet. You may find, however, that you derive some benefit on the initial image color "trueness" by using the PIM export and then following standard color management techniques from then on in the process.

    Good articles on color management at

    I'm not an expert on PIM, but I know you can do better with a little effort.

    :-)
