Adobe Brings Special Editions of its Top Software to Mac App Store
Adobe announced today that it will be unveiling a new special edition release of two of its best selling products. The Adobe Photoshop 10 Editor and Adobe Premiere Elements 10 Editor are now both available in the Mac App Store for $79.99 (each) and are available IMMEDIATELY.
The special editions of both software releases use the same technology in the full editions, but at a more reasonable cost. No need to sit around uploading disc after disc - just download and install. Here are some of the features you can enjoy in the special edition straight from Adobe's press release.
"This special edition of Photoshop Elements 10 utilizes intelligent technology, available in the full version of the No. 1 selling consumer photo-editing software, Photoshop Elements, that makes creating amazing photos a breeze. With new innovations, Guided Edits make achieving stunning photo effects approachable helping users create a shallow depth of field or design a fun layout of snapshots with Picture Stack, or even add a dream-like diffused glow with the Orton effect through easy to follow steps.
New text functionality, which scrapbookers will especially love, allows users to add curving, flowing text to a photo that automatically follows the outline of a subject, custom path or shape. Special crop guides now help users at any level easily achieve interesting, visually appealing compositions. Also, the Smart Brush lets users paint unique effects onto specific areas of photos and now features 30 new effects like Pencil Sketch and Oil Pastel."
So you're getting all the same features you would normally get, but at a better cost for you, and without losing functionality. This goes for Adobe Premiere Elements 10 as well. One great feature in Premiere Elements 10 Editor is its ability for "Enhancing visual clarity for video is now easier with Photoshop’s color correction technology applied to video, including new one-click tools and pro-style corrections for perfect color throughout each movie." Now that is some great product unity.
All the great features you have come to enjoy in Premiere Elements is also available with the special edition available today in the Mac App Store for download. I have used Adobe Premiere Elements in the past, and was quite impressed at how easy it was to create great movies with little to no video editing knowledge. Now if only I can figure out how to be a better Photoshop person!
