When I say does Scirbus "support" Photoshop Elements, I don't mean monetarily, I mean can I take my Photoshop image and "upload" it or "place" it into the page layout of Scribus and save the eventual book as a PDF. If I'm wrong about Scribus being a page layout program (or whatever it's called, subscription, etc.) then I'll know I must move on to the Adobe products. But one man in the Adobe forums suggested Scribus for the fact that he uses Photoshop Elements and Scribus to make his books. Semantics and lack of phone conversations has proven to be a hindrance in getting seemingly simple questions answered. But I'll continue "learning" until I get the definitive answers.

There isn't any reason why you shouldn't be able to save from
Photoshop/Elements in a file format suitable for Scribus.
