Can anyone guide me to how or where I might find online manuals for the Photoshop 5.0 LE? Any help would be much appreciated.

Older technology does not self-install on your machine. This means that you have to copy it to a location you set up.
LE User Guide is found as a .PDF on your LE disk. You have to copy it manually; Example) to your LE program folder.
Then double click to open it. Or you could print the whole thing out on your printer if you have lots of time and paper.

This Adobe Photoshop 5.0 is the worst photo editing software I have ever owned. Extremely user UN friendly. I do not recommend it for anyone! What a waste of money! Who wants to print out your own user manual? Adobe stinks.

|The User Manual, found on your disk is in .pdf format. You can copy it to your hard drive and read it from there. You don't have to print it.|
LE, an image editing introduction, is a free ride, but definitely NOT AN EASY RIDE.
In defense of LE:
-LE comes bundle with various cameras and scanners free of charge.
-Adobe offers free "Classroom in a Book" lessons as well as art files for both Mac and PC.
--Le offers manipulation and control of images that far surpass many of the newer editing programs that just have one-size-fits-all solutions.
--LE is a learning ground. In the long run, any editing manipulation you learn in LE 5.0 will hold you in good stead for learning other advanced professional editing programs. This includes Histograms, Levels, Curves, Channels, Masks (both layer and alpha masks) and selections, etc)
Light edition photoshop means it has fewer menus, tools, undoes, & manipulation solutions than the fuller versions. Light means less complex & fewer options or solutions. Adobe never said it was "user friendly". It is not easy.
LE is 'The Little Engine that Could' on a steep learning hill.

If you don't like LE then you definitely would not like the full-version of Photoshop. Photoshop is mostly used by professionals and rarely used by beginners. You can do things with LE that you cannot possibly do with other software. You must invest some time in the program to learn it. As an example... some programs have an instant fix for "red-eye" but in Photoshop, you have many different methods that you can fix the problem. The full-version of Photoshop offers possibly almost 10 different methods of fixing "red-eye." Obviously the best results will not be an "instant method." If you want the photo to look good, you need to learn how to process it. I suggest strongly that you download the "Classroom in a book" manual and the "Sample Art" files from
Once you have learned how to use the program, you will find that it is very user-friendly and you will be amazed by what you can do. After completing the lessons, it would be interesting to hear your opinion at that time.
