Adobe recently released version 9 of their consumer photo editing software, Photoshop Elements. This new version supports both Windows and Macintosh on one disc, and Apple fans should rejoice at the economies of scale this affords. For example, Amazon is offering $10 off Photoshop Elements 9 already[exp], in addition to Adobe’s $20 rebate through December[/exp]. Initial reviews say Photoshop Elements 9 is great for new users, though not much of an upgrade over version 8. Premiere Elements 9 is also $10 off, though users aren’t as enthusiastic about it. Both include free shipping.
I picked up Photoshop Elements 9 for use with my new camera, since I was dissatisfied with the capabilities of iPhoto. I’m looking forward to trying it out, and will report back here with my experiences!
