Updated for intuitiveness and control, Photoshop Elements 15 from Adobe is a versatile photo editing tool that also benefits organizing and sharing your imagery. The 15th edition of this software continues to add tools and functions to better the look of images, including the ability to work with touchscreen devices for editing and organizing your library of imagery. When editing portraits, you can now eliminate frowns and squints in photos in order to ensure everyone looks his or her best; Camera Shake Reduction compensates for blurriness in handheld shots; and an intelligent Haze Removal tool improves the overall clarity of photos. Beginners benefit from 45 Guided Edits that provide step-by-step lessons on how to perform a wide range of creative editing processes, including how to make visual text or creative collages, and Batch Editing helps to expedite the post-production process when making repetitive corrections to groups of photos. The Quick Edit mode also lets you make fast, simple fixes in a streamlined manner and Photoshop Elements 15 can also analyze your photo and instantly come up with five new variations involving the use of creative effects. A simplified Filter Gallery is also available for trying out new preset creative effects in a quick, intuitive manner.

These editing tools and functions complement the rich set of foundation features in Photoshop Elements, including the ability to use content-aware technology to automatically replace backgrounds, process raw files for greater control over image appearance, and composite and stitch together multiple photos for creative compositions. Finished photos can be shared to social media sites directly from within the application, and photos can also be tagged for easier sourcing via the Organizer. An updated search function lets you quickly find specific photos using multiple search criteria, and Smart Tags can also be added to photos using recognized subjects, such as sunsets, birthdays, or cats.

Photoshop Elements 15 (DVD) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Going Backward? I have been using various Elements versions for about 10 years. B&H offered 15 for a steal so I decided to upgrade from 12. First, there are a few new editing features. That's good. Second, Windows Explorer does not show thumbnail pics from DNG files before I load them into 15 - That is new and different and not appreciated. Third, I wonder if 15 has started to turn into bloat-ware: The application is just a bit sluggish compared to all previous versions that I have used (5, 10, 12). So, recommended with a bit of caution - It is still a great program for non-professional photographers, but those familiar with it might find some issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'm considering not purchasing anything from B&H anymore. I've been trying to install this program since 11/25/16. I've been unsuccessful because the program keeps asking me to provide a redemption code to initiate the installation. I contacted B&H several times hoping someone could provide me with this code. I was told that the code was located somewhere in the packaging. It wasn't. B&H told me to contact Adobe since this is one of their products. I've trying to get the code from Adobe since 11/25/16. These on line chats with Adobe and phone calls to B&H have gone on at least twice a day since 11/25/16. I can't return the product to B&H because I literally tore the packaging apart inch by inch looking for this so called redemption code. I am not a pro shooter, just an avid amateur for about 40 years. Since converting to digital from film about 2 years ago, I decided to try an entry level post processing program (Adobe PE 15). I've been a customer for a couple of years now after discovering B&H on line. I've purchased a camera, 4 speed lights , a modest studio set up, and countless accessories. All I would like is for B&H and Adobe to somehow get together and provide me with whatever code I need to get this program installed successfully so that I can start to learn how to use this program in post processing. I purchased this product in good faith. Am I asking too much?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I would buy an older Photoshop product usable on Win 10 Elements 15 does not have such useful items, (at least visible to this user) as rectangular marquee. For the price paid, I would suggest that earlier Photoshop editions are better buys than Elements 15. Users need more than the simple crop tool can offer. In addition tool options seems to be fewer and more difficult to access than in earlier versions of this program.Buy an earlier version for a lower cost if it will work on Win 10. Save time, money and simple frustrations. Product support seems to come with a dismissive attitude as well. Lucky user!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! Really easy to use. if you like to fix pictures the way I do, this program is for you. Its a great product easy to use and the online help is great. I like the new features. Some more than others but still a great program for the price. I will recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with the purchase. I use lightroom to post process most of my photos and do not do enough to justify the purchase of full photoshop. Elements is a happy middle. It works great with Lightroom, and has enough options for the average photographer that wants to be able to process and has the options either guided, or expert. I do not use the organizer, but it has several options for organizing your photos and keeping track, name, date, face.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's does a good job and is fairly user friendly. I use Photoshop to resize, crop or minimally enhance nature photos from my DSLR camera. Recently my Photoshop Elements 9 quit working due to a Windows 10 update so I bought Photoshop Elements 15. Aside from having to figure out where features have been moved, it is a really good program. Overall, it seems more user friendly that Elements 9 and seems to do a better job enhancing photos. My complaint in general is that Photoshop (or Microsoft) should have come up with a patch to make my Elements 9 work after the Windows patch made it quit working. My only complaint about Elements 15 is the same as my complaint about elements 9. It's too complicated and doesn't have enough user friendly instructions on how to use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a replacement for Photoshop I purchased Elements 15 after I upgraded my system to Windows 10 and learned my existing version of Photoshop was no longer compatible. What I learned is that while it will accomplish many of the functions in Photoshop, there are some critical ones it won't. Most importantly, it has very limited color management, to the point that I could not duplicate the results I got with Photoshop, even with no alterations made in Elements. Ultimately, I switched to printer color management (Epson R1900), and now I can duplicate PS results, as long as I am conscious of the color space I'm working in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product While I usually use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop all the time, the price for PS Elements was too good to not take advantage of. PS Elements continues to be an excellent intermediate photo editing software application - highly recommend especially if you don't want to go to LR or PS.
