Adobe Unveils Photoshop and Premiere Elements 15 for Mac

Adobe today released new versions of Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements, its affordable photo and video editing software aimed at consumers. Both Photoshop and Premiere Elements include new tools and enhancements to existing capabilities to make the photo and video editing experience even more streamlined and simple.

Photoshop Elements includes a new Transform tool that's able to turn frowns into smiles, adjust squinting eyes, and make other quick, easy adjustments to photos in a matter of minutes. Filters have been improved and can be layered and edited more simply, and there's a new Smart Tags system that scans images for content and makes it easier to find them based on subjects like cats, dogs, sunsets, birthdays, people, and more. Search using multiple terms is also available.

For those who are new to the photo editing process, Photoshop Elements has a range of new Guided Edits to do things like add text elements to photos, layer multiple effects, add motion blur behind subjects, turn photos into paintings with texture and color, and create custom frames.

On touch screen devices, which pertains to Windows machines, there are new options for using the Organizer and Quick Edit with touch-based gestures, an improvement also included in Premiere Elements. Both Premiere and Photoshop Elements also include integration with Facebook, YouTube, and other social networks to make it faster to share videos and photos.

Premiere Elements features a simplified search tool to quickly locate video content you want to work with, and there's a new tool for clearing haze from landscape shots for clearer video. As with Photoshop Elements, Premiere Elements includes new Guided Edits, including one that allows users to apply effects across multiple clips or an entire movie.

Face detection allows Favorite Moments to automatically locate the people in your videos to bring them to the front and center, a feature that's also new to Pan and Zoom and Smart Trim, enhancing the functionality of these tools. A new music remix feature lets users pick a music file that can be automatically rematched to the length of the movie, and there's a tool for creating dynamic collages from photos and videos.

Is it just me, or does the baby on the left look like it had its smile turned upside down? Rather than it frowning in the first instance and then turned into a smile?

Maybe it's just me. I tend to avoid babies. :confused:

I had a happy childhood, apparently. I never frowned, dad drove a Bugatti Veyron, and mom looked like a supermodel. I was also quite the baseball player—as evidenced by the vapor cone shock wave surrounding me as I broke the sound barrier just before sliding into home plate. Life was so good back then. What happened?

Thats kids face is wrong.

The right picture is the image shot as the first pic isn't a natural facial expression. Looks like a terrible Photoshop.

My thoughts exactly. What a great new feature, that they can't even provide an example of.

As a retoucher by trade, I can say from experience that turning a frown into a smile convincingly is harder than it sounds. So hard, even Adobe had to cheat to get it done.

It's not just flipped because the tongue is still at the bottom of the mouth. If it had just been flipped, the tongue would be at the top.

That motion blur effect on the kid running is awful.

The happy / sad pics are wrong. Both of them.

And just a PSA, I knew a kid when I was about 10 that was riding a skateboard down on his belly like in the last photo. He hit a small pebble which caused the skateboard to stop instantly and him to slide forward onto the ground. He ended up chipping his front tooth.
