Photoshop Elements joins the Mac App Store

I’m pleased to see that the #1-selling consumer photo-editing software, Photoshop Elements, has just become available for download via the Mac App Store for $79. According to the press release, new features include the following:

Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 Guided Edits offer easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for creating artistic effects such as Out of Bounds for making photos leap off the page, Pop Art for creating retro-style images, or Perfect Portraits for easy retouching. Users can instantly remove clutter from photos or repair imperfections with one stroke of the Spot Healing Brush, which uses powerful content-aware technology adapted from Photoshop CS5.

Check out the product pages for screenshots & more info.

    I honestly do not understand Adobe pricing policy here in Denmark. I’ve commented on it before, but with Photoshop Elements 9 being available on the Mac App Store it becomes even harder to ignore.

    Adobe charges 60 percent more (USD 145 incl. taxes) than Apple does (USD 90 incl. taxes) for the exact same app.

    With the difference in prices being so significant, I can only hope that more of Adobe’s programs become available through the Mac App Store, so I can purchase them there instead of having to buy directly from Adobe.

    the difference is apparently it is not exactly the same, losing a few features…
