More Info

Adobe Photoshop Elements is an excellent software program for beginners, but more experienced photographers will want increased control within monochrome conversions and much more understated templates for your auto creations. No subscription Great value if bought with Premiere Elements 2020 Advanced characteristics are hidden off Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020 is the new baby brother into the full-blooded Photoshop CC, the program that has become the market standard for image editing. The advantage of Elements is you don't need to pay a subscription -- and can buy the software. And it's particularly good value if you buy it with its film-editing cousin Adobe Premiere Elements 2020. In the last several years, Adobe has concentrated on making Elements as easy to use for beginners as potential - and its capability is currently somewhat hidden out of sight. Adobe introduced the Home Screen with Photoshop Elements 2019. It is intended to provide you rapid access to this essential features and enable you to see some of what is made possible by this software. The Home Screen is a good starting point for novices, especially if you aren't certain where to find the controls you want to perform the edit that you wish to make (Picture credit: Angela Nicholson/Digital Photographer)There's a very helpful search bar at the top of the Home Screen which invites you to type in what you need to do. Just beneath this is a carousel that highlights a number of the new features of the latest version of the software. 

 But for most photographers that the Organizer is the real heart of Adobe  Photoshop   Elements and Premiere Elements. It has tools to let you import and organize your pictures using tags, key words and records to make them simpler to locate. Contrary to Adobe Lightroom, you also do not have to import pictures into the Organizer to edit them, but doing this makes it much easier to browse and find the picture you wish to perform on. As an example, the software can automatically detect faces on your pictures, and it is worth spending a couple of minutes adding names to the faces as it creates finding specific people much faster at a later date. Tapping on the Individuals tab at the peak of the Organizer reveals any faces which the program has found in your own graphics. It is possible to add titles and group them (Image credit: Angela Nicholson/Digital Photographer)in case you have a huge assortment of pictures, we advocate importing them. That is because the software doesn't simply export the file location information, it also assesses the pictures to allow you to create stacks of similar shots, which requires quite a bit of time. After importing some images to the Organizer, tapping'Create' shows a selection of items that it is possible to make. These include slide shows, collages, prints, and picture books, greetings cards, calendars and CD coats.
