Adobe recently released Photoshop Elements 6 and Premiere Elements 4. Both products offer hot new features that are sure to excite both students and teachers. What I like most about the Elements packages are how easy it is to create exciting projects.
Photoshop Elements 6 has an amazing new feature that allows you to combine the best sections of multiple images into a single great photo. Ever try taking a group shot of children? It is darn near impossible to capture every kid at his or her best. Not anymore! Use the new blending feature in Photoshop Elements 6 to merge the best parts of photographs into the perfect group photo.
Taking digital photographs is fun, but creating an interactive project with digital pictures is a blast. With Elements 6 you can create cinematic slideshows, interactive web galleries, and photo books.
Video is the new big thing! Students and teachers can now more easily create professional quality videos filled with special effects, audio, transitions, and pre-made themes. Simply capture your footage, edit your video, throw in some great transitions, insert a theme, and add a title…now you are ready to publish!
Speaking of publishing…Premiere Elements 4 now comes with a “Sharing Center” that makes it easy for students to publish their videos. Students can burn to DVD and even optimize their videos for YouTube sharing.
