Art Programs?

Hey, guys--

I've pretty much used Photoshop all my life, but I have a PC laptop and haruspexy has a PC, too, and my copy of photoshop is for the mac. We can't afford a $600 program, so we're trying to decide between Photoshop Elements and Paint Shop Pro.

We especially want to know if either of these programs has a paint bucket that lets you fill all the pixels of the same color, even if they're not next to each other, whether either program lets you adjust HSB easily, and whether either program allows you to organize layers in layer groups (folders) like photoshop does.

We'd also appreciate anybody weighing in with any other pros and cons of either program! Thanks!
