I believe with PSE you can open a RAW file (or a Jpg now) in the RAW converter and this is the first best place to bring up shadowed areas. Also a quick google found this tutorial. And probably endless more.

I don't have PSE so I can't say for sure but any photo editor would be useless without the ability adjust shadows. The little editor on my Android phone does it OK.

You don't buy Photo Shop now-a-days, but you can buy lightroom, PS is a subscription.. I believe either of these are more complex than Elements so time could be well spent digging into PSE first as the others present a pretty good learning curve and elements is thought to be sufficient for much editing.

Actually, Lightroom and Photoshop CC are both included in a $9.95 monthly subscription. I immediately gravitated toward LR. The "get-started" part of LR is quick, although I learn something new with every image I process. One of these days, I'll take the time to play with the PS part of the subscription.

I wouldn't imagine they would remove or alter the location of shadow / highlights significantly in newer versions of elements, but I could be wrong. Here's where it is in 10

Right, both are in the monthly subscription. I learned P/S way back and never tried LR so that is why I slipped up. But I think you can buy LR outright still stand alone. However, both and elements come with the RAW converter and I find for basic images you can do most adjustments there, often only cropping and sizing later on.
