• Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements 13 Released with a Slew of New Features

    Adobe recently unveiled the latest versions of both Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements, both of which bring several improvements to its consumer level photo and video editing software. Among the enhanced features is the constantly updated tutorials portal which has proven to be increasingly useful for consumers.

    For those of you who didn’t know, Adobe’s Elements software is typically known for being easy-to-use while still having powerful features and quick task handling. With the Elements 13 suite, both Photoshop and Premier have received new editing tools and access to Elements Live, which is an in-app portal to in-depth tips and guidance.

    Photoshop Elements’ has been updated with an updated Photomerge Compose Tool, allowing users to make seamless “mashups” by just copying and pasting subjects into another photo. Users can further polish and manipulate the photo with the Refine Selection Brush and Match Color Tone tools for easy, high-quality image blending. Other improvements include one-click Effects Variations, Intelligent Crop Suggestions and a Video Story mode.

    On the other hand, Premiere Elements 13 offers a number of automated tools like Favorite Moments, which assembles a movie built around the best points in a clip as marked by the user. Other tools include Video in Titles which adds in video to a title screen, mimicking some of the latest styles used by Hollywood moviemakers. The software also includes an improved Shake Stabilizer for software-based shake reduction. Tools such as this one are particularly useful for action cameras such as the GoPro, which seemingly don’t have effective onboard hardware stabilizers.

    One of the largest feature additions to the Elements 13 package is the aforementioned Elements Live, an educational portal that hosts tutorials, tips and other content coming directly from Adobe. This particular tool is available from within both Photoshop Elements 13 and Premiere Elements 13.

    Those of you interested in purchasing Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 and Premiere Elements 13 can do so from Adobe’s website for $99.99 separately or for $149.99 bundled together. If you’re an existing customer, you can upgrade for $79.99 each.
