A unified offering for all photo and video editing to Windows and Mac customers
Adobe Systems has unveiled new photo and video editing software Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9 for Windows and Mac.
The company said that the new photo and video editing software introduces Premiere Elements to the Mac platform.
Adobe vice president of product management for digital imaging Kevin Connor said that for the first time, both Windows and Mac users can do more with their photos and video with Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9 bundle, a unified offering for all photo and video needs.
Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9 features Photoshop CS5’s Content Aware Fill feature, the content intelligence in the Spot Healing Brush analyses what’s in the image and de-clutters or repairs photos.
The new Guided Edit options provides users the process of editing effects including Out of Bounds, making an element of a photo appear to leap off the page in 3D, creating pop art masterpieces, or retouching made easy via the perfect portraits feature.
The new Premiere Elements 9 allows users to create movies through its tools which automatically fix audio problems, trim away bad footage, stabilise shaky shots and correct bad color and lighting problems.
In addition, its Cartoon Effects feature enables users to turn any video into an animated film, and optimised performance makes editing and viewing smooth, even in HD.
The Premiere Elements makes it is easier to upload and import from Flip Video camcorders and DSLR cameras, while the Organiser allows users to tag and view photos and videos in one central place.
The Auto-Analyser allows users tag the photos and videos and also identifies specific faces in photos, facilitating users to post photos and videos directly to Facebook, combine media together into dynamic interactive Online Albums, and create an online DVD-like viewing experience to share with friends and family.
Further, the drag-and drop option allows users to customise flexible scrapbook and photo book layout designs, for automatic placement of photos within a template or easy access to any Photoshop Elements editing feature from directly within the software, which can then be printed at home or through an online print service provider.
The company has said that along with Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9, Windows and Mac users have the option to purchase Plus, which offers 20GB of storage for automatic online backup and sharing, and ongoing deliveries of new tutorials, artwork and interactive online templates sent directly to the desktop software.
