Photoshop Elements 3 and
Adobe Premiere Elements
The best image
editing software under $100 just got much better, and Adobe has released a "lite" version of their superb movie editing software, Adobe Premiere
. There is more good news - for a limited time you can get big rebates.
I have used Photoshop (version 5.5 and then CS) and Photoshop Elements
(version 1 and then 2) for a long time. Photoshop
is THE professional image editing software and is used by professionals everywhere. It has more power than most photographers would ever need and gets better with each new upgrade. The one setback to the full version of
Photoshop is the big price tag.
Photoshop Elements will do most of the basic imaging editing of the full scale version for 1/6 the price. Elements
satisfies many of my imaging editing needs so I use it when I don't need some of the more exotic features built into the full version of Photoshop
Adobe has now released
Photoshop Elements 3 and it is a big step forward. It adds the HEALING BRUSH which was only available before in the full version of Photoshop. This addition alone is worth the price of upgrading from version 1 or 2. Elements 3 also adds all of the features of Adobe Album
so you can organize your photos into searchable albums. You now have two programs for the price of one.
But here is the best news, Elements 3
will read RAW camera files. Now you don't have to use the slow and clunky software that came with your digital camera to read RAW files. Do it faster and better with Photoshop Elements 3.
Photoshop Elements 3
sells for less than $95 but with current rebates from Amazon and Adobe, you can get it for $50. Use the links below.
Adobe Premiere is superb, professional-level movie editing software. Adobe has now released the lite version, Premiere Elements. Now you can edit your digital movies with style. Not only that, you can add still photos to your movies, or
just use all of Premiere's whiz bang features to turn still photos into impressive digital slide shows with sound.
The Photoshop Elements 3 and Premiere Elements package costs less than $145 but for a limited time you can get rebates that drop the price to less than $85. Such a deal. Use the links below..
