Make more of every photo

Facebook users can now tag pictures based on their friends list and thus mark and distribute photos in one step.

Photoshop Elements 10 enables users to add text to photos, which can then be automatically aligned to an image element or a path. In addition, the program uses a so-called "crop guide" to facilitate the selection of individual image sections for even better compositions and has 30 new brush effects that can be applied by simply dragging over a certain area of ​​the image.

Impressive videos in just a few steps

Adobe Premiere Elements 10 makes video editing easier with new tools that, for example, optimize optical purity with one click and thus enable perfect, continuous color fidelity. With the added InstantMovie templates, videos can be created in a matter of seconds, with the raw material being automatically cut and added to the selected template with appropriate background music as well as titles, effects and transitions.

Advanced pan and zoom effects with automated features such as face selection open up more creative possibilities for users. The transfer of finished video projects is also very easy: Videos can be uploaded directly to Facebook and YouTube, output in AVCHD format and burned as high-quality HD films. In addition, Premiere Elements 10 users on Windows 7 can benefit from improved 64-bit performance for the first time.

Organize pictures and videos more easily
