Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 and Adobe Premiere Elements 7 for Windows with new Photoshop.com membership are shipping today.
Available as a stand-alone product or as a single retail bundle package, the integration between the two desktop products allows for instant access to the best photo and video options to create cinematic slide shows, dramatic freeze-frame effects, and unique themed creations.
For the first time ever, Photoshop Elements 7 and Premiere Elements 7 customers can also sign up for one year of membership on Photoshop.com to receive helpful templates and creative tutorials delivered on a regular basis as well as automatic online backup and storage of photos and videos.
Powerful yet Easy-to-use Editing Tricks Make Ordinary Photos Extraordinary
Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 combines power and simplicity to make storytelling easier than ever before. The new Smart Brush helps users apply incredible effects exactly where they want with a single stroke. Scene Cleaner, based on Adobe's innovative Photomerge technology, creates the ideal photo by letting users simply brush away unwanted subjects such as tourists or cars, who may be interrupting the focus of the photo.
Polished Movies in Minutes with Enhanced Editing Options
Adobe Premiere Elements 7 offers time-saving options that help users make high-quality, Hollywood-style movies. Now supporting the AVCHD format, the software automatically analyzes video clips as they are imported and applies Smart Tags that identify video quality, number of faces, sounds and more for quick finds. New InstantMovie means video clips can be easily dragged and dropped into feature-packed themes such as birthday, wedding or extreme sports.
