Photoshop Elements 13

Adobe has released Photoshop Elements 13, the latest version of its consumer photo editing software (Jeff Carlson covered version 11 in “Take Control of Your Digital Photos on a Mac”). 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 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+)
