Adobe has introduced the new Photoshop Elements 13 and Premiere Elements 13 programs, which will allow Windows and Mac OS X users to quickly edit their photos and videos.
Photoshop CC is usually aimed at professionals who need the latest editing tools for their shots. However, Adobe is also offering solutions for beginners and for the people who are in need for quicker and easier editing.
These solutions are called Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements. Both programs have just reached version 13 and they have been released on the market, so that consumers can modify their images and movies with ease.
Adobe launches Photoshop Elements 13 and Premiere Elements 13 for quick photo and video editing
Some of the new features have been added at the request of the users. Adobe has received lots of feedback from its customers, so it has decided to meet their demands. The list includes better photo mashups, new tools for Facebook photos, new black & white guided edits, favorite moments, and Hollywood-like effects.
In Adobe Photoshop Elements 13, users will be able to copy people as well as objects and to paste them in other photos using the Photomerge Compose tool. The Selection Brush has been refined, too, so photo mashups are now a breeze instead of a headache.
Users can also take advantage of the text and graphics tools, which can be added to photos destined to become profile and cover pics on social networking websites, such as Facebook.
Black-and-white photos will become more personal, courtesy of new Guided Edits, that include the ability to pop a specific color in a B&W shot.
In Adobe Photoshop Elements 13, users can select Favorite Moments, which represent the most important parts of a video. These moments can then be used for creating a special video that can be shared with the people who were a part of it.
Effects Masking can be used for adding effects to some parts of a frame, while Video in Titles allows users to include videos in a movie title.
More details and availability information
Adobe has confirmed that there are 50 effects in the Effects Variations list for a complete customization experience. Additionally, the Intelligent Crop Suggestions will analyze a frame and will recommend the best crops possible.
Both these features are available in Photoshop Elements 13, while Premiere Elements 13 owners will get an improved Shake Stabilizer tool that will stabilize shaky movies.
Photoshop Elements 13 can be purchased at Amazon for $99.99, just like the Premiere Elements 13 software, for Windows and Mac OS X users. Amazon is also offering a bundle consisting of both programs at the price of $149.99.
