The download version of Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 for Mac and Windows is a versatile and intuitive editing and organizing program for managing a complete digital imaging workflow. Beginning with a wide range of photo editing and enhancement capabilities, Elements 12 presents a breadth of unique tools for automatically optimizing the look and feel of select images and retouching unwanted aspects of individual photographs. Content Aware Move and Fill work to intelligently replace backgrounds within images after moving elements or when using the Straighten tool to correct misaligned horizons and the Spot Healing Brush can be used to quickly remove any undesired aspects of a picture. Discolored pet eyes can be quickly corrected for and Auto Smart Tone works to efficiently optimize brightness, contrast, and color based on learned personal preferences. For becoming acquainted with creative editing techniques, 25 Guided Edits are available and walk you through producing professional-quality enhancements to imagery.

The expansive set of editing capabilities are housed within a friendly environment, featuring easy-to-recognize icons and commands for a more seamless working method. Quick, Guided, and Expert modes can be selected depending on the amount of manipulation and control desired during editing and distinct Editor and Organizer interfaces allow for intuitive handling of photos. Mobile device support helps to make files shot with a smartphone or tablet readily available within Elements and, conversely, files housed within Elements albums can be viewed and shared from linked mobile devices. A rich set of tagging controls, based on subject, location, or event, help to streamline navigating immense catalogs of imagery and support direct uploading of content to social media sites, including Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, and Twitter.

Friendly and Intuitive Environment
Extending the legacy of past versions of Photoshop Elements, Elements 12 revolves around a highly intuitive and efficient environment for easy navigation for selecting a host of editing tools, exporting options, and file management solutions. Large, bold icons simplify tool selection and the ability to choose from Quick, Guided, and Expert editing modes enables the appropriate amount of control based on personal needs.
Seamless Mobile Integration
Images from within Elements 12 can easily be viewed, shared, and linked with mobile devices and, additionally, images taken with your mobile devices can be sent directly to Elements albums for an even more seamless digital workflow.
Content Aware Tools
The Content Aware Move tool can be used to easily move objects from within the image and have the background automatically filled-in in a seamless manner. Additionally you can straighten images and have the missing background automatically filled in using Content Aware Fill for the Straighten tool when working in Expert mode.
One-Touch Personalized Effects
A wide variety of one-touch Frames, Effects, and Textures can be applied to images to creatively enhance their final appearance. Calendars, scrapbook pages, cards, and more can also be easily created using an array of professionally designed templates, which can further be personally customized to suit your own imagery.
Correct Pet Eye
Similar to removing red-eye in images, discolored pet's eyes can now be easily corrected for to remove the green or yellow cast from imagery.
Guided Editing
Professional effects can be produced and learned simultaneously using a range of over 25 Guided Edits. New effects added to Elements 12 include Zoom Burst, which adds a dynamic sense of motion to an image; Photo Puzzle, which gives the appearance that your image is constructed from puzzle pieces; and Old Photo Restore, which is specifically design to help repair worn or damaged photos.
Seamless Image Sharing
The intuitive Elements interface enables direct sharing of photos and videos within Elements albums to Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter, and other social media sites, which, furthermore, can be easily viewed and shared on mobile devices. Sharing can now be done directly from the Editor interface as well as the Organizer interface.
Automated Correction Tools
A broad array of one-step shortcuts can be employed to improve select elements of imagery or enhance the overall appearance of a photograph. Unwanted details can be intelligently removed using the Spot Healing Brush and Auto Smart Tone can be used to optimize color, tone, and exposure adjustments based on learned personal preferences.
All-Around Workflow Solution
Photoshop Elements 12 acts as an efficient means for organizing, finding, and managing files with the Organizer view in addition to serving as a solution for editing, enhancing, printing, and sharing photos. Visual tags can be utilized to selectively demarcate files based on subjects, locations, or events for easier locating of specific files within a vast image library. Additionally, location-tagged images can be viewed on a map based on where they were taken.
Automatic Panoramic Creation
Photomerge Panorama automatically stitches and blends individual horizontal or vertical photos as part of a larger, panoramic scene and intelligently removes jagged edges and overlapping content for a clean, seamless appearance.
Enhanced Group Shots
Photomerge Group Shot works to combine individual elements, including faces and bodies, from multiple group shots of the same scene in order to alleviate a pair of closed eyes or non-smiling face from ruining an otherwise perfect group photograph.

          This is a decent upgrade from 10. They switched the order of many icons, and there is, what seems like, an unneccessary learning curve for some things, but overall the new bells and whistles make up for it. Great for most people who won't or can't leverage all the functionality of the full Photoshop.

              Comments about Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 for Mac and Windows (Download):

              I am new to photography. Although I am learning very fast, elements allows me to focus on my photo skills vs editing. It is easy to use and layed out well. A must for beginners. I do wish layers and such were easier but with tutorials I had it down in no time. The Download code came quick from B&H so I could start using immediately.

                      I own LR-5 and Paint Shop Pro X6 Ultimate. Lightroom does most of what I need. PSP has lots of abilities but the UI is a pain with tiny little controls and sliders that I can barely see even on my 24" monitor. Elements is easier to use and integrates better with LR-5. Not quite as capable as full Photoshop or even PSP but for 99% of what I need it works fine.

                          I bought Photoshop Elements because it was a heck of a lot cheaper than Photoshop and it has all of the essential tools that you could ever need. I'm a professional photographer and I use Elements to touch up any photos that need it. It also works great with RAW!!

                          I have Photoshop, on it I do deep correction. Recently it was necessary a simple and cheap photo editor. From the required - crop, send to print and simple correction (red eye, color correction etc). Photoshop Elements approached for this purpose very well. In order that special knowledge isn't necessary to work at it.

                                I'm a Aperture user so I use PE 12 for things that I really can't do in Aperture - of which there are several. I have been impressed with the power of PE so far.

                                      This was a great improvement over last year' awful Version 11. They added content aware move and fixed last year's sorting problem by allowing the user to sort images alphabetically as had always been allowed in previous versions. The program loads and runs faster too.

                                            Has all the 'necessary' tools to make sophisticated adjustments to photos. Much more that a simpler version of Photoshop. Also, the 3 workspace modules are very well designed.

                                                  I use this program for my photography. Having used the full version of Photoshop for several years in college, the price forced me to step back to Elements. While I primarily use Lightroom for the majority of my editing, I occasionally have the need to use Photoshop for some cloning or manipulation. While the full version of Photoshop has way more features than I'd ever need, I find that Elements is missing a few key features that I do miss, especially Content-Aware Fill. If Elements had that, I'd be happy, but it doesn't that I'm aware of.

                                                        A little adjustment required to get used to interface changes compared to version. 8. Has some nice new features though, particularly social media integration and sharing options.
