Imaging Software : Adobe Releases Photoshop Elements 10 & Adobe Premiere Elements 10 BundleDecember 2011
“The Photoshop Elements 10 & Adobe Premiere Elements 10 bundle brings together all the functionality people need to easily create, perfect and share both photo and video memories,” said Winston Hendrickson, vice president, Digital Imaging Products, Adobe. “The new features expand the creative possibilities with photos and videos. And now, more than ever, people who capture photos are experimenting with video, so we’re offering new tools and technology that bring video editing to photographers in a way that is natural and easy for them.”
Photoshop Elements 10, marking a milestone release and 10-year legacy, features enhanced content-intelligent tools powered by the engine that fuels Adobe Photoshop software. New guided edits, like depth of field and picture stack, provide step-by-step guidance. Also, Facebook enthusiasts will enjoy the ability to tag photos based on their Friends List, making the tagging and sharing process more seamless. And for social networking or using sharing sites like YouTube, customers can share photos directly from within the Elements organizer.
The program also adds more ways to work with photos creatively, like the ability to add text that automatically follows the outline of a subject or a custom path, great for scrapbooking, and crop guides for the best compositions. Users can now apply 30 new smart brush effects, like oil pastel, by brushing over an area of the photo.
Adobe Premiere Elements 10 includes new tools to take the work out of video editing and let users focus on making home movies. There are one-click tools and pro-style corrections to enhance visual clarity for perfect color throughout the movie and new InstantMovie themes that intelligently build movies in seconds. Users can turn individual photos into videos with pan and zoom motions, and automated options are designed to make it easy to find faces with the pan and zoom process. Mac users can now use SmartSound to add musical tracks that perfectly match the length of movies.
Sharing finished projects is also simplified with directly upload to Facebook and YouTube, or export in AVCHD format to burn high-quality HD movies. And for the first time, Adobe Premiere Elements offers enhanced performance for 64-bit Windows 7 users.
