System Requirements for Photoshop Elements 6.0

System requirements for Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0 and Hidden Power tools are exactly the same. System requirements for Elements change with every version of the program. These changes reflect changes Adobe makes in Elements to take advantage of differences in operating systems, developments in digital imaging, and to enhance processing power. Adobe issues their recommendations for computer systems, but keep in mind these are recommendations, and likely are close to minimum system requirements. If you want better performance, you may want to consider a system upgrade if you are at or below any of these standards. Increasing RAM, processing speed and disk space can enhance your experience with Elements and Hidden Power tools.
