Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 & Premiere Elements 10 for Mac & Windows is a software bundle that combines all the tools you'll need to organize, edit, enhance, and share your videos and photos with your closest friends – or the wide world. Both Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements are based on Adobe's industry-leading professional software programs for photo and video editing. The Elements versions borrow many of the best features from those programs, while adding automated tools that make it supremely easy to add a professional sheen to any digital photo or movie.
These automated tools keep getting more powerful, and now in version 10, Photoshop Elements features Guided Edits, which walk you step by step through the process of adding advanced effects to your photos, such as depth of field simulation. On the video side, Premiere Elements 10 features new color-enhancement tools as well as new themes for its InstantMovie tool, which completes an automatic edit of your best footage, complete with titles & music, based on a chosen cinematic theme.
The two programs together form a package that's greater than the sum of its parts. Photoshop Elements & Premiere Elements offers a shared Organizer that serves as the central hub of your two programs. This becomes increasingly important as storage cost-per-gigabyte goes down and the number of photo and video files that you accumulate continues to skyrocket. Photoshop Elements now features an intelligent Object Search feature that lets you search based on a specific object in a photo. You can also organize photos & videos based on visual tags, and tag photos for Facebook upload using your Friends list.
To be eligible for this upgrade, you must own any previous version of Adobe Photoshop Elements or Premiere Elements.
