Adobe 2018 versions
Adobe has released Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018 and Adobe Premiere Elements 2018, brand new versions of its consumer-level photo-editing and video-editing suites.
The 2018 versions remain standalone tools. Allowing users to purchase them outright and come with several new and improved features to build on previous updates.
An interesting new feature for Photoshop Elements 2018 Open Closed Eyes. When taking photos of kids, you want to get the best possible shot, but it’s not always possible to line everything up correctly. You might secure a great action shot with a decent smile, but find the eyes closed.
Auto Selection tool
The Auto Selection tool makes cutting out a background much easier, too. Instead of precision, choose the rough area and Photoshop will take the foreground and remove the entire background. Using the Replace Background guided edit, the user can take a background from another photo and replace original object.
Meanwhile, Premiere Element’s new Candid Moments take snapshots from your videos, so you can grab photos for your collection. The Smart Trim feature enables you to cut and extract the best scenes from your raw video, whilst the Freeze Frame function will enable you to pause and slow key areas in your action videos. So, user can emphasize a jump, move, or similar element.
For people shooting on a GoPro on similar hardware, the updated Fix Action Cam module will fix videos with the built-in color correction. There’s also a fish eye fixing tool and lens distortion effect.
If user wants to export edited video for social media, Premiere Elements now adds animated text and titles, which is ideal for uploading to Instagram.
The two products available now as free trial downloads for Windows and Mac. However, an Adobe account required to road-test either product. Both products have an MSRP of $99.99, with upgrade pricing at $79.99 each. Users can also purchase both products in a discounted bundle for $149.99, or $119.99 as an upgrade.
