Adobe has announced Photoshop Elements 14 and Premiere Elements 14, the latest edition of its well-known photo and video-editing and organizing software programs. Elements is known for its highly intuitive and efficient navigation environments and user-friendly interface, and this edition emphasizes improvements to simplify and enhance the user experience. It provides many of the tools found in Photoshop and Premiere and is ideal for photo and video enthusiasts—those looking to get their digital imagery collected and organized simply and without the advanced and perhaps superfluous features provided by the more complex programs. New to Photoshop Elements 14 is an improved Shake Reduction tool to remove the blur caused by camera movement, a new Haze Removal tool, easier guided edits to resize your images or add “motion,” a refined Selection Matting tool, a new category of Quick Effects and a user experience overhaul of the Quick Edit page design.
Premiere Elements 14 Video Editor brings with it 4K support for many new cameras, customizable Motion Titles and two new guided edits: Color Pop, which “pops out” one color while making the rest of your video black-and-white; and Time Remapping edit, which adds slow, fast, or reverse motion to your video. Also, the design for selecting export options has been improved to be “goal-based” and is easier to navigate. Finally, audio capabilities have been relocated to a common place, making them more “discoverable” and better utilized in context with video editing.
Elements 14 Organizer provides easier access to your images with improved naming, facial recognition and location assignment systems that let you group like images and easily create slideshows or even photo books. And perhaps the most basic user interface improvements will be the most welcomed, including revised welcome screens, the above-mentioned guided edits, and an easier connection to the existing Elements ecosystem. Photoshop Elements 14 and Premier Elements 14 are available individually or bundled together and are available bundled only in the Student & Teacher Edition.
