Adobe ships Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac

updated 12:35 am EDT, Mon March 24, 2008

Adobe Photoshop Elements 6

Adobe on Monday began shipping Photoshop Elements 6 software for Macintosh. Photoshop Elements 6, announced at Macworld Expo in early January, features new Photomerge technology that lets users create a group shot by simply choosing and combining the best facial expressions and body language from a series of shots. Version 6 also includes a new Quick Selection tool that snaps to the edges by simply clicking and dragging over a specific area and offers three editing modes, tuned for different levels of experience, including the new Guided Edit mode that walks beginners through various image improvement steps. Photoshop Elements 6 software streamlines editing with clean, uncluttered spaces and new tabs for easy access to various functions. Other enhancements include an improved conversion tool that converts color images into elegant, nuanced black-and-whites.

Adobe also included new sharing options that help users create and shape their stories: users can customize layouts for photo books, scrapbook pages, greeting cards and CD/DVDs as well as design a personal online album and order professional-quality prints of hardbound photo books and print photos into real U.S. postage stamps.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 runs on Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard as a Universal Binary application that will run natively on both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs. It is immediately available in the United States and Canada for $90. Owners of previous versions of Photoshop Elements can upgrade to Photoshop Elements 6 for $70 with an in-box, mail-in rebate or through Adobe's website.

    Where?

    Where did you get this information? It isn't announced on Adobe's site. Nor has mine shipped yet.

    where, indeed

    Indeed, my order at Adobe now reads "by April 2nd". Until yesterday, it said "by March 23rd".

    So, where did you get this information?

    Better be fast shipping.

    Mine has always said March 25th...but it is pending. This better be some very fast shipping.

    re: where, indeed

    It would appear that the editors of MacNN pulled this one out of their butts. This morning, I pre-ordered Photoshop Elements 6 for download. The actual package has yet to be posted to Adobe's servers for download. My receipt clearly states that it is on pre-order status.

    Mine's pending

    I ordered the download upgrade tonight (3/24/2008) and after accepting the order, the reply was PENDING. Even the electronic copy is not available for download yet. I wish you (MacNN) wouldn't have made your announcement if it wasn't true. Certainly the electronic version should be available if they're "shipping" (implying sending something tangible, like a boxed copy) the product.

    I bought Elements 3

    ...but later noticed that Elements 4 is bundled with those Watcom tablets for $100. It seems to me that it would be better to buy Elements as part of a bundle than just give Adobe eighty bucks.

    Can anyone suggest bundles that might be worth waiting for? If Watcom are going to update their tablet line to include Elements 6 instead of Elements 4, I would wait for that.

    Maybe there are other products that might bundle Elements 6 sooner, or with a more essential bit of hardware?

    Is it worth it?

    Didn't Adobe abandon the Mac on this awhile back? I'm kinda ticked about it the first time. I'm on the fence on this one.

    Still not shipped.

    Mine still says "Expected Arrival Date Tuesday, March 25, 2008." That's YESTERDAY!

    I even ordered it the hour it went on preorder on January 10th.
