Adobe is releasing the Photoshop Elements 15 and Premiere Elements 15 today with its amazing new features and powerful tools. Everything you need to know about the new version is here.
If you are a regular photoshop user, you must have been waiting for the new version eagerly for a while now. It’s finally out with its affordable video and photo editing software. The new versions of Photoshop Elements 15 and Premiere Elements 15 both now include new tools. Also, there have been enhancements in the already-present abilities of the software as well. The new tools improve user’s editing experience, making it much finer than it was previously.
The new Elements 15 apps start with Adobe Elements Organizer 15. It now features touch enabled Organizer and Quick Edit mode for touchscreen PCs. The new version includes a new Transform tool as well, which can turn frowns or sad faces into a smile. Also, it can adjust eyes that were shut or squinted while the picture was taken. It will come in handy when users have to make quick adjustments to pictures. We all know how rare great snaps are and when they are ruined by that one person frowning, it’s frustrating. However, all thanks to the new Photoshop version, that won’t be a problem anymore.
Improvement in features makes editing and layering easier and more efficient. A new Smart Tags system has been added as well. It scans the pictures on the basis of their content and makes it easier to find them in a crowd of images on your Mac or PC. For instance, if an image has a baby, cat, dog, house or a woman in it, you can find that image quickly if you know its attributes and what it contains. You can also use multiple terms for it. Locating a picture without any fuss will especially help people who are heavy users of photoshop.
The New Guided Edits
Photoshop Element 15 includes five new guided edits that take you step-by-step to improve your photos. Adobe’s lightweight yet very powerful editor now has a total of 45 guide edits. This will prove to be a blessing to those new to the photo editing process. Novices have got a great service on their computers now.
