Photoshop Elements: Affordable, Easy to Use

Adobe Photoshop Elements, is a new product designed specifically for amateur photographers, hobbyists, and business users who want a powerful yet easy to use digital imaging solution. Based on Adobe Photoshop 6.0 software, the world standard image editing solution, Photoshop Elements delivers unique, new features that give users access to many of the same, advanced tools used by graphics professionals. With enhancements that simplify capturing and editing photos, Photoshop Elements software makes it easy to prepare images for both print and the Web.
With powerful tools, an intuitive interface and an affordable price, Adobe Photoshop Elements combines the power of Photoshop with customized features that enable users to freely explore their creativity while mastering the elements of digital imaging.
Photoshop Elements software delivers powerful features for quickly performing the necessary steps to retouch images while mastering the essentials of using professional image editing tools. The unique Hints palette provides context sensitive illustrations and tips that help users learn to use the sophisticated Photoshop tools and palettes. The exclusive Recipes palette interactively teaches more complex editing techniques for task-oriented activities and can be updated with fresh content over the Web.
Photoshop Elements satisfies users' creative urges with more visual access to existing features, as well as useful new capabilities not available in competitive products. For example, Adobe PhotomergeTM technology automatically arranges and blends multiple photos into panoramas by resizing and skewing any portion of the images to fit seamlessly together into a single image. The Filter Browser lets users visually scan the 95-plus special effects filters then drag and drop the desired filter onto an image to apply it. Previews save time on trial and error by letting users immediately see the effect of a filter on an image.
Photoshop Elements software also provides flexible image capture and output options. Users can work with images from digital cameras, traditional cameras and scanners and prepare them for posting on the Web, ordering prints online, or outputting their images to a desktop printer. For posting photos to the Web, the Save for Web command and Web Photo Gallery help users optimize their photos for screen viewing. In the U.S., customers can also use the integrated, award-winning Shutterfly service to take advantage of Web-based photo printing and send high-quality, personalized prints and photo greeting cards to friends and family. When printing to the desktop, Photoshop Elements saves time and money with its unique Picture Package feature that maximizes the use of expensive photo quality paper by formatting multiple copies of a photo on a single page.
