Screen cosmetics for Photoshop Elements 6?

    Just "upgraded" from Photoshop Elements 3 to Photoshop Elements 6, and
    discovered that I intensely dislike the black-on-black cosmetics Adobe
    has adopted for all the toolbars, palettes, and bins in PSE 6. Any way
    to change the default background and foreground colors for all those
    elements? (I haven't found a preferences setting for this.)

    And if I next upgrade my older versions of Illustrator and Acrobat, will
    I encounter the same thing?

    [And as a separate gripe, Adobe support tells me that I _must_ in the
    future name _all_ my Adobe apps (and also all of their enclosing
    folders in the Applications folder) as "*Adobe* Photoshop Elements" and
    "*Adobe* Illustrator" and "*Adobe* Acrobat" and "*Adobe* Bridge" and
    "*Adobe* Help Viewer* and "*Adobe* Stock Photos" and on and on. If I
    delete any of those annoying and unnecessary *Adobe*'s, my whole suite
    of applications may stop working.

    I thought it was only companies like Microsoft that enforced this kind
    of stupid and tawdry garbage on its users.]

    Trash them and use GIMP and Inkscape instead?

  3. Just upgraded from Elements 4 to get a speed boost on x86. Elements 6
    has a clumsy and hideous GUI reminiscent of early X11 apps. It's
    unbearable to use. That's my last Adobe purchase.

    I can't comment on Photoshop Elements, but I'm finding that Pixelmator, which
    costs around $50, is providing me with those capabilities of Photoshop that I
    actually use at a price far, far less than the photo editing software from

    However, Pixelmator also favours the 'black' look, so the OP will
    probably hate that too -- for that matter, I'm not all that fond of it
    either (the black look, not Pixelmator per se).

    I will admit that for me it did take a bit of getting used to the "black
    look" of Pixelator, but as of now I have adapted to it. I will say it would
    be nice if one had a choice of themes.
