While I do most of my image editing work in Lightroom nowadays, it is
occasionally important to have a pixel editing tool like Photoshop
available. I use Photoshop CS4 nowadays and use it to do graphics
oriented things (like adding borders, annotation, etc) that are
outside of the domain of image editing capable in Lightroom alone.

I'd keep Photoshop Elements around for the potential capability it
provides. It's not all that big, doesn't waste much space, and in a
pinch may be exactly what you need to get some small thing done that
would otherwise be difficult.
