Adobe Shipping Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac [Updated]

Adobe has started shipping Photoshop Elements 6 for the Mac. Elements 6 was first announced at Macworld in January:

In this release, we've focused on going beyond the basics to make everyday and advanced tasks even easier to achieve. Photoshop Elements 6 for Macintosh allows people to organize and find photos quickly, unleash powerful editing tricks without any heavy lifting, and creatively share photos that give them all the bragging rights."

Adobe detailed the new features on their website, including a number of video demos:

- Create a Group Shot from multiple photos
- Make easy selections
- Use curves adjustments

Version 6.0 finally brings the Mac version of Elements on par with the Windows version. Adobe had previously skipped releasing Elements 5.0 for the Mac. Version 6 also introduces Intel Mac support (Universal Binary) and is available for retail price of $89.99.

While Adobe also sells a downloadable version of Elements 6 (1 GB) on their online store, the actual download is not yet available, but should presumably become available soon.

Update: Download now available via Adobe's online store.

Available at Amazon for $82.99
