Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements slashed for sale
Over the weekend, Adobe revealed its second sale this holiday season for image editing software Photoshop Elements 11, movie creator Premiere Elements 11, and photo archival tool Lightroom 4. The sale runs through January 6. Lightroom 4 has been reduced to $130, from the original retail of $149. Both Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere Elements 11 have been cut to $80, from $99. A bundle consisting of both Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere Elements 11 is $99.
Both Elements packages have received user interface updates as well as improvements to individual aspects of the applications. Illustration filters have been added to Photoshop Elements, with "guided edits" offering easy effect implementation such as depth of field modification, and tilt-shift. Premiere Elements has added DVD authoring, and can be used as a replacement for the now-defunct iDVD application.
