New Adobe Elements apps

Adobe has released new Windows editions of its Photoshop and Premiere Elements packages, saying that Mac versions should debut in early 2008. The focal point of Photoshop Elements 6 is Adobe's Photomerge technology, which allows users to combine faces and bodies from different images to improve group photos. The software also introduces a new Quick Selection Tool, and a Guided Edit mode which suggests means of improving a photo. Lastly, Photoshop CS3's black-and-white converstion tool makes an appearance, and the interface as a whole has been enhanced with more tabs and a streamlined Organizer.

Premiere Elements 4 borrows Photoshop Elements' Organizer, but is further enhanced by a new Audio Mixer that can control the volume of different channels. Also key is the Sharing Center, which is a centralized means of converting and uploading videos for formats such as iPhone, Blu-Ray, and YouTube. The new editions of Premiere and Photoshop Elements are on sale now for $100 each, or $150 as a bundle.

    Book printing

    I hope Photoshop Album is in the mix for the Mac version, i'm desperate for an photoalbum printing app that uses regular A4 not in landscape.

    mac news

    how again is this related to Mac News ?

    Actually I am really interested in knowing how much companies value their mac customers. I would say delaying their mac output is a sure sign that they don't give much of a damn (used to be Adobe made a really big proportion of their profits from mac users, which I'm sure they don't spend on R&D for their mac products).

    So yes this is news, and as always s**** adobe.

    Elements history

    The Mac delay could be related to wanting to go Universal with the next Mac Elements release. 1 & 2 were Mac/Windows on one CD. 2 added OS X support. 3 split into different products and added the gawd-awful automated window/pallet management.

    Mac users eventually got a 4 but now Windows users are on the verge of 6. It's hard to believe so many Mac users are able to find an alternative or are really spending full-price for the Photoshop CS product. GIMP is worthless c***. What else is there?
