Adobe has released the latest versions of its consumer photo and video editing software via the Mac App Store. Photoshop Elements 10 Editor expands its array of Guided Edits to help you create shallow depth of field effects, dreamy Orton effects, and more. It also adds the capability to align text to a path, paint using new Smart Brush designs, and recompose photos using crop guides. Premiere Elements 10 Editor represents the first time the video editor is available via the Mac App Store, and features one-click video color correction, new InstantMovie themes, and easy pan and zoom motions. Notably, neither app includes Elements Organizer, the software bundled with the boxed versions for managing one’s media library. ($79.99 new for each program; 1.21 GB for Photoshop Elements, 924 MB for Premiere Elements)
Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard
Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.
