Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 Review

2 October 2012
  • Conclusion: With each passing year, Photoshop Elements continues to feel like a more complete offering than iPhoto. Adobe has made the software even more appealing this year by combining powerful Photoshop CS6 features with, a slick, friendly new user interface. It’s well worth the extra money for frustrated iPhoto users looking to go beyond the basics.
  • Pros: Brighter UI is friendlier to novice users. Many pro features carried over from Photoshop CS6. Guided edit mode makes complicated effects a snap.
  • Cons: Veteran users may need time to adjust to UI overhaul. No Retina Display support in initial release. Events can’t be created while importing photos.

10 January 2012
  • Summary: Digital photographers who need an extensive feature set to edit, manage and share their photos. It is one of the best products in the market, but you have to be ready to invest the time to learn the product and make sure you have a reasonably powerful computer.

Expert Review

15 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 & Premiere Elements 8 remain the most interesting combination of products, in one bundle, for home consumers, hobbyists and even some professional digital photographers and digital videographers. While previous versions of this bundle have been quite good, version 8 brings a level of integration between the user interfaces in each product and the handling, control and organization of content (your photos, clips and editing), all of which makes...
  • Pros: The new, integrated Organizer is reason enough, on its own, to purchase Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 & Premiere Elements 8 or upgrade from v7. Auto-Analyze isn't perfect, but it's extremely useful and a massive time saver. There seems to be a ton of new, high quality clip art supplied in this version, which is useful in both Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements. Layering, cropping and motion control in Premiere Elements 8 is improved over the already-good quality in...
  • Cons: There are quite a few tutorials which aren't available to basic users because they're hidden behind the Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 & Premiere Elements 8 Plus online membership wall. Our view is that this sort of pay wall is just not going to get the positive reaction Adobe wants from the newest users of its products, nor will it encourage new users to quickly become proficient with the product and better evangelists for it therefore. Time will tell, but we think tutor...

Adobe Photoshop Elements 9: It Might Be All You Need For Image Editing

1 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Mention digital image editing and it’s likely that the first word you’ll hear is Photoshop. It’s become a general term, like Xerox. For many, the full-blown version of Photoshop (currently at CS5) is either overkill, with features that you’ll never need or use, or just too expensive. Adobe realizes this and has produced a more streamlined version for years.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.0

maximum pc
19 December 2008
  • Excerpt: A fast car won’t make you turn better laps at Laguna Seca. A pair of $200 sneakers won’t help you outplay Lebron James, and installing Photoshop CS4 won’t make your photos magically better. While that may be true, Adobe’s Photoshop Elements 7.0 will almost certainly make the average person’s photos better. Now in its seventh iteration, Elements 7.0 uses the guts of the extremely powerful Photoshop and tries to make it friendly to everyone.
  • Pros: Excellent RAW support and fairly simple to use.
  • Cons: Lacks HDR and may leave more experienced photographers wishing for more.

13 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Adobe Photoshop Elements 4 is more powerful than ever, and its excellent features and integration of the organizing/editing functions make it the best choice for handling your digital photo collection.
  • Pros: Top-notch organizing and editing features, with unrivaled integration. Greatly improved slide show creation. Automatic "face tagging" of images. Many valuable smaller improvements.
  • Cons: "Magic" selection tools are underdeveloped. Hit-or-miss automatic red-eye fix.

Update adds text search, Scene Cleaner and other features

Consumer Electronics Net
6 November 2008
  • Excerpt: When an application matures, programmers tend to focus on features that are new and different, while maintaining the core strength of what the application does. Usually it comes in the form of a revamped interface combined with new features that prove useful. While Adobe Photoshop Elements experienced a freshened interface with version 6, version 7 adds some features that helps make the image editing process more efficient, yet still fun.
