Photoshop Elements 13

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Adobe has released Photoshop Elements 13 [1], the latest version of its consumer photo editing software (Jeff Carlson covered version 11 in “Take Control of Your Digital Photos on a Mac [2]”). The new release adds the Photomerge Compose feature for easy copying of people or objects from one photo to another; the Intelligent Crop Suggestions tool that can recommend four different crops based on analysis of faces, horizons, and more within an image; and three new Guided Edits that help you fine-tune black-and-white photos. The Expert mode now offers a total of 50 ways to tailor photos in a single click, and it adds a Facebook-specific feature that enables you to create customized cover and profile photos that combine into an integrated layout. A free trial [3] of Photoshop Elements 13 is available, but you’ll first need to download and install the Adobe Download Assistant and sign in with an Adobe ID. ($99.99 new, $79.99 upgrade, 1.96 GB, 10.8+)
