  • Adobe Releases Photoshop and Premiere Elements 14

    Adobe recently debuted Photoshop Elements 14 and Premiere Elements 14, which is its latest set of consumer level photo and video editing tools that now come with even more automated features to help make your images pop. Adobe previously updated its Elements software lineup with several improvements to core tools while adding new features like photo merging and video stabilization. The company ended up doing more of the same but with considerably more attention paid to the new functionality this time.

    In Photoshop Elements 14, Adobe introduces tools for removing camera shake and haze from still images. Like many other Elements features, fine adjustments are possible for a custom look. In a live demonstration, the haze removal tool quickly sharpened edges and adjusted saturation while keeping colors levels in check. One of the more impressive enhancements this year was the selection tool. Adobe had been continuously improving Photoshop’s ability to discover edges and parse out fine detail without much user intervention. The company is claiming that its latest software can detect hair and fur, which are usually difficult subjects for automatic selection operations and time consuming if done manually. In addition to this, Adobe now includes 34 Guided Edits that help users through common tasks, from resizing to adding motion blur.

    Premiere Elements 14 comes with new Guided Edits, which include popping color in black-and-white footage and adding slow- or fast-motion effects for dramatic flair. The most notable is support for 4K video that can be exported to various screen and file formats. For those of you who didn’t make the connection, the feature comes just in time for Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, both of which are capable of shooting 4K video. Furthermore, audio is also enhanced in Premiere with UI assets moved for easy access while editing. Adobe improved on motion titles, adding bounce, spin and “zoom” effects for memorable opening sequences. Last but not least, clips and entire projects can be sorted by people, places and events while users can plot their travels on a map using GPS metadata.

    Those of you interested in using Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 and Premiere Elements 14 can buy the software for $99.99 separately or as $149.99 as a bundle. Upgrades currently cost $79.99 each or $119.99 when purchased together.
