Adobe Elements 11 overview

  • 1Description

Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 for Mac and Windows (Download) is a comprehensive yet simple solution for managing, enhancing, and sharing your digital photos and video clips. The software supplies all the tools you need to crop photos, add effects and text, create online albums, and upload photos and videos to your favorite social-networking sites. With Guided Edits, you get step-by-step assistance creating professional-quality effects.

With simple, effective tools that offer guidance, Elements helps every photo look its best: Whiten teeth instantly, crop according to Rule of Thirds composition, and adjust colors in specific image areas. Based on Adobe's industry-standard image editing software, Photoshop Elements 11 also offers Photomerge technology, which lets you easily stitch together panoramic images and match one photo's style to the next.

When you're done, you can create scrapbooks or add templates to groups of photos to create online albums. Or simply share your results with your friends by employing the program's direct upload to Facebook, with integrated tagging based on your Friends list.

Photoshop Elements 11 improves upon version 10 in a number of key ways, starting with a brighter, more intuitive user interface. It's easier to navigate and still gives you the flexibility to customize it to your liking. Version 11 also advances the Photoshop Elements program via new Guided Edits and Filter Effects, as well as enhanced object selection. Plus, you can now import third party actions and take advantage of Adobe Revel connectivity. Additionally, you now have the ability to perform Google maps geo-tagging, share videos to Vimeo, and print to CeWe (EMEA).

ACR 7.1 introduces Process Version 2012, a newer form of deciphering the RAW file format. This version exposes three new sliders: Luminance Detail, Luminance Contrast, and Color Detail. The ACR 7.1 dialog allows you to choose process version 2012 or the older versions, 2010 or 2003. Supported RAW file formats for importing include TIF, CRW, NEF, RAF, and ORF. Benefit from a smoother workflow when using RAW images in your photo creations. Photoshop Elements will automatically optimize RAW files for use in photo book layouts, scrapbook pages, and more.

New for Version 11

Enhanced User Interface
Now brighter and more intuitive, the Elements 11 UI with its intuitive Organizer makes it easier to navigate through, view and manage your pictures based on people, places and events. Choose People to filter your library down to just the photos that have a specific person in them. In Places, Map view allows you to zoom in on a particular location in the world and see which photos you captured there. Events organizes your images around what was going on when you captured them, such as a holiday, a sporting event or concert, or a day at the beach. Additionally, you can choose whatever kind of tag best suits each photo, such as the name of your pet or a particular craft that interests you, to quickly find all photos bearing that tag later. The Smart Tag feature automatically analyzes all your photos and videos to make finding them even faster. Quickly locate all blurry shots so you can delete them, or all in-focus shots to find your best work right away. Bigger, bolder icons, an Action bar, and the ability to select Quick, Guided and Expert editing modes all help simplify the tasks of organizing, editing and creating. You still have the flexibility to customize the interface to your liking.
Quick Editing Mode
Make fast fixes to your photos, selecting from drop-down menus for Smart Fix, Lighting, Color, Balance and Sharpen. Lighting, for example, gives you adjustment options for Shadows, Midtones, Highlights and Exposure. With just a click, you can make significant improvements to your images in the Quick editing mode.
Guided Edits
For a more in-depth, step-by-step walkthrough for making finer, more detailed fixes to your images, choose the Guided editing mode. Produce professional-grade effects by following intuitive steps in over 25 Guided Edits. Some of the new options at your disposal include Vignette, Tilt-Shift, and High/Low Key. Vignette effects draw attention to the center of your photo, Tilt-Shift effects make your images look like miniature scenes, and High/Low Key effects add energy or drama with high levels of white or black. Choose from Touchups like Adjust Levels, Brightness and Contrast, Correct Skin Tones, Crop Photo, Enhance Colors, Lighten and Darken, Perfect Portrait, Recompose, Remove a Color Cast, Rotate and Straighten, Scratches and Blemishes, and Sharpen. Sliders let you fine-tune these touchups.
Expert Editing Mode
If you want the greatest amount of control over your editing, work in Expert mode. Make fine adjustments to Solid Color, Gradient, Pattern, Levels, Brightness / Contrast, Hue / Saturation, Gradient Map, Photo Filter, and Threshold, and choose and customize effects like Invert and Posterize.
Filter Effects
New options give you more creative possibilities, including transforming your photos into illustrations: Just click to apply Comic, Graphic Novel, and Pen & Ink filters. You can choose from presets within each filter effect to further customize the look of your images: Try Painted Gray, Fine Detail, Hard Edges and Twisted Plot for the Graphic Novel filter; Comic, Grayscale, Sunny Day and Old Print for the Comic filter; or Basic Blue, Purple, Gray Tones and Green Inversion for Pen & Ink. Plus, sliders give you the ability to fine tune the presets, adjusting qualities like darkness, contrast and vibrance. You can also add further touches, like changing the blend mode to Luminosity, instantly turning a Painted Gray Graphic Novel picture into a color one.
Easily Combine Elements from Different Photos
You can cleanly extract an element from one photo and place it into another. Elements 11 simplifies the task of selecting and refining the edges of hair and other tricky content, enabling you to add relatives to family portraits, put a friend up on stage with her favorite musician, and more. Photomerge technology allows you to combine the best aspects of a series of photos with very little effort.
New Templates for More Fresh Looks
Share pictures in eye-catching new templates for printed photo keepsakes and Online Albums.
Adobe Revel Connectivity
The Adobe Revel photo app for Mac, iPad, and iPhone and the Revel Importer for Android smartphones enable you to bring your photo library into the cloud. Now, you can easily sync all edits across your mobile devices. Browse, organize and edit your pictures anywhere you have access to a wireless Internet connection. Revel supports the Retina display on the new iPad. You can share photos via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr.
Google Maps Geo-Tagging
View photos or videos on a satellite map rendered by Google, based upon where they were captured.
Import Third-Party Effects, Styles and Actions
Expand your options for editing via fast import and application of effects and styles from popular photo websites and blogs. You can even import actions that automate repetitive editing tasks, streamlining your workflow.
Other New Features
