I recently added a new computer with a fast processor and lots of disc space mainly for storing and editing my photos. I am currently looking for a a good imaging software package.

Over the past week or so I have installed a few trial imaging software packages -

1. Lightroom. I found it to be a little complicated for my liking with a long learning curve.
2. Photoshop CS5. It seems like a great program, much easier to use than Lightroom since I have lots of experience with Elements, but it is very expensive. With tax it would come to more that half what I paid for this fairly advanced computer! I am inclined to put those extra dollars towards another lens!
3. Elements 10. I have Elements 2 & 3 installed on my old computer so have experience. I find it very easy to use and much more in my budget. However, it is a fairly basic package.
4. Capture NX2. I am wondering if this software is a good compromise between Elements and CS5. The price is more than Elements buy much more reasonable that CS5.

I would appreciate any advice on the advantages and disadvantages of each of the above mentioned programs. Thank you.
