- Express Lab
This super-fast photo fixing mode will save you hours of time because now you can edit dozens of photos in the time it used to take to edit just a few. Carry out Common Image editing functions such as cropping, rotating, removing red eye, and straightening - without having to wait for each individual photo to open.
- Graphite Workspace Theme
As soon as you launch the program, you'll see the Graphite Workspace Theme. This darker theme really makes your photos stand out. And for people who don't like change, you can switch back to the classic interface with just a few clicks.
- HDR Photo Merge
With HDR Photo Merge you can easily create photos that give you full detail in the shadows and the highlights of your photos. HDR Photo Merge helps you combine two or more photos taken at different exposures, and then automatically dodge and burn to bring out the contrast.
- Layer Styles
With the Layer Styles you can easily add drop shadows, embossing, outer and inner glows, bevels and even reflections to your text, photos and creative projects. The best part of these new Layer Styles is if you make any changes to the layer the effect is automatically changed to match.
- Visible Watermarks
Whether you're a professional photographer or someone who wants to share your photos online, it's a good idea to add a discrete watermark that reminds those viewing your pictures who the photographer was. With the Visible Watermarks feature you can easily create and add a personal watermark to all your photos.

This feature lets you create dynamic black & white photos by simulating the effects of shooting black & white film with colored filters. Now you can select from a virtually infinite range of color combinations where before you could chose from pre-chosen color filters.
