Photoshop & Premiere Elements 10 Ramp Up Easy Editing Tools

Adobe announced the immediate availability of Photoshop Elements 10 and Premiere Elements 10 on Tuesday. The new version of Photoshop Elements includes what Adobe is calling improved content-intelligent photo editing tools, and Premiere Elements adds new one-click video enhancement tools.

Photoshop Elements 10, Adobe’s consumer-focused image editing app for the Mac, offers new Depth of Field and Picture Stack guided edits, lets users add text that automatically follows custom paths or the outline of objects, adds 30 new smart brush effects, supports photo tagging based on Facebook Friends Lists, and more.

Premiere Elements 10, Adobe’s consumer video editing app for the Mac, ships with new one-click tools for improving video color and clarity. It also ships with InstantMovie themes for building movies quickly much like iMovie’s Movie Trailers feature, improved the pan and zoom features, offers Facebook and YouTube sharing, and can export videos in AVCHD format.

Both apps include Adobe’s Organizer for managing and organizing photo and video projects. The Adobe Bridge-like Organizer gained a new Object Search that lets users select an object in one image and find other images with similar objects. Selecting an airplane, for example, will find other photos with airplanes.

Photoshop Elements 10 and Premiere Elements 10 are priced at US$99.99 each, or $149.99 as a bundle. The apps are currently available through Adobe and will be available through retailers soon.
