Introducing Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 & Premiere Elements 14

If you’re like most people, there’s a lot going on in your life. In addition to work and other day-to-day activities, you’re busy with back-to-school events, weekend outings, sports, hobbies, holidays and gatherings with friends and family. And since you always have your smartphone or tablet with you, you’re probably taking more photos and videos than ever before.

It’s great that you can easily capture these moments, but since you’re living the moments, too, you don’t want to have to worry about things like lighting, composition and trying to get the perfect shot or video. That’s why the Elements team is excited to announce the release of Photoshop Elements 14 & Premiere Elements 14. We built this version with the goal of helping you stay in the moment, enjoy your memories and make the most of your precious time. Elements 14 software uses content intelligence, automated features and a friendly interface to help you effortlessly turn your quick snapshots and video clips into amazing photos and movies.

We’ve created some great new features and we’ve enhanced existing ones to make them better and easier to use. Here’s a quick look:

What’s new in the Elements Organizer

Find and organize with ease: We’ve revamped the Elements Organizer so you can more quickly find the photos and videos you need. The enhanced People view does an even better job recognizing the faces in your photos, and it stacks them by person during import so it’s easy to find photos of specific people later.

The enhanced Places view makes it easier to assign locations to your photos and videos, and view them right on a map based on where you took them. And in the Events view, your media is clustered by date range making it easy to apply an Events tag to that cluster.

What’s new in Photoshop Elements 14

Bye-bye, camera shake: We call Shake Reduction “your selfies’ best friend,” but it’s great for any photo shot with a handheld camera. Just click to remove the camera shake blurs that come from unsteady hands.

Never a hazy day: Ever notice that, when you take a photo of an outdoor landscape, moisture in the air can cause the background to look hazy? Now you can use Haze Remover to make the background as crisp as what’s up front. De-haze in one click, or use sliders for more control.

Speed Guided Edit for action shots: Whether your photo captures a ball in flight, a bike zipping by, or some other cool moment, now you can get step-by-step help amping up the action by adding cool motion blurs.

Resize in seconds with a new Guided Edit: Want your photo to fit a certain picture frame or spot on a website? With step-by-step help, resizing has never been easier.

Select hair in a snap: It used to be a real chore to select hair, pet fur and other fine details in photos. Now you can just paint loosely over the area you want to select, and Elements detects the edges and does the rest with the Fine Detail Selection option.

Get custom looks to fit any photo: Want to give a photo some extra style, but not sure which effect will look best? Elements analyzes the subject, color and lighting and Smart Looks gives you five effects that fit perfectly.

Quick edits made easier: Quick Edit mode is now even friendlier and easier to use, letting you rotate photos and make quick fixes faster than before.

What’s new in Premiere Elements 14

Tell dazzling stories with motion titles: When you’ve made a great movie, why not start it off right? Grab attention with new, professional-looking motion titles. Premiere Elements makes it easy to animate text and graphics using built-in presets.

Color Pop Guided Edit for instant wow: Color Pop for photos was a big hit last year, so we added a Guided Edit for Premiere Elements this year. Create some visual drama by popping one or more colors in a scene and pushing everything else to black-and-white. You can fine-tune for hue, saturation and luminance, too. Elements walks you through it step by step.

Play with time using Guided Edits: Get step-by-step help creating slow-motion effects that add emphasis, suspense or drama. Or, get guidance with adding fast-motion effects that speed up your story and create energy, excitement or fun.

Go beyond HD with 4K: If you’ve got a 4K Ultra HD video camera and/or TV, you know what all the fuss is about. Now you can use Premiere Elements to edit and view 4K movies for the ultimate cinematic experience.*

Sound your best: Audio sets your movie’s mood, and now it’s easier than ever to fine-tune your sound. We’ve brought all of the audio features together in one place so they’re easy to find, and a new toggle screen lets you focus on just audio or video parts of a clip as needed.

Easily export optimized movies in multiple formats: Now when you’re ready to export your movie, Premiere Elements recommends settings for you. That way you get a movie that looks great on whatever device or screen you choose, from iPads, iPods and other smartphones to big-screen 4K and HD TVs.*

    When can we buy Elements and Premier 14? How much does it cost?

  • By Reg Brown - 9:14 AM on September 25, 2015  

    I purchased Premier Elements 13 & Photoshop Elements 13 earlier this month, now I now see version 14 available! Is there going to be a fee for upgrading?

    Also I want to upgrade my Windows 7 computer to Windows 10, are there any known problems with the Adobe product during the upgrade

    • By Mark - 10:46 AM on September 25, 2015  

      Same here!

      • By Dave - 9:22 AM on September 26, 2015  

        Full price is what they told me last night

      • By Eric - 10:29 AM on September 26, 2015  

        Same here, I upgraded to 13 only days ago. I’m FURIOUS!

    Has menu font size scaling been fixed for hi res displays?

  • By Julie - 8:23 PM on September 27, 2015  

    I just bought the 13 series this month, not knowing that a newer product was coming out. I am really upset.

  • By kaum - 2:51 AM on September 28, 2015  

    I upgraded from Elements 13 to 14 but I am disappointed by the face recognition part. Formerly marked faces are not properly recognized. I have the most problems when two or more faces are in one picture. Only one face is recognized.

  • By CMG - 8:08 AM on October 2, 2015  

    I missed the free upgrade by 8days. This has happened to me before. It’s infuriating!

    • By Jeffrey Tranberry - 5:15 PM on October 6, 2015  

      I’ve sent you an email with more information.

  • By CMG - 8:09 AM on October 2, 2015  

    I missed the free upgrade by 8days…ugh. This is infuriating!

  • By Ian F - 10:52 AM on October 2, 2015  

    I downloaded Photoshop Elements 14 and cannot find the panaromic tool. It was available on Elements 13 so where is it on Elements 14. I did follow the instructions with out luck.

  • By Anita - 9:58 AM on October 6, 2015  

    Stick with 13, I can’t find panoramic either and the guided mode has changed and I have to keep flipping back to quick or expert mode to move on to the next edit.

    I sell palm trees and would like to show a home owner or business what a palm tree would look like on their property. To do this I would take a photo of the property and remove the background from where I wish to place the plant and place the palm tree there, seamlessly.

    QUESTION: Can Adobe Elements do this?

    • By Jeffrey Tranberry - 10:17 AM on October 19, 2015  

      Sure. Elements is good at compositing images.

  • By Ellen - 10:11 AM on October 26, 2015  

    I have an iMac OSX Yosemite version 10.10.4. Is photoshop elements 14 compatible with this computer? Do I need any extra upgrades or programs to run photoshop elements 14 on this computer?

    • By Jeffrey Tranberry - 2:57 PM on October 28, 2015  

      Elements is compatible with Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite).

  • By Kris Kelley - 5:29 PM on October 26, 2015  

    I’ve never used Photoshop before, though I’ve played around with Paint & Picture Manager quite a bit. I’d like to take advantage of a discount at Costco and purchase Elements 14. Where can I get some tutorial info or basics introducing me to how to start?

  • By Kris Kelley - 5:31 PM on October 26, 2015  

    I’ve never used Photoshop before, though I’ve played around with Paint & Picture Manager quite a bit. I’d like to take advantage of a discount at Costco and purchase Elements 14. Where do I start to shorten the learning curve?

  • By Doug Vann - 7:58 AM on October 28, 2015  

    I have a desktop that stays here and laptop that goes with me on the road. Can it be installed on both computers or do I have to purchase it twice….?

    • By Jeffrey Tranberry - 2:56 PM on October 28, 2015  

      You can activate on two of your personal computers.

  • By Kathleen Tauer - 12:26 AM on October 29, 2015  

    I have (OLD!!!) Elements 6. What would be the best upgrade for me at this time, not wanting a monthly charge like Lightroom or CC? PS– I am a photographer, but didn’t use to edit much. Now I want to get more into it and shoot raw more. My current version won’t open raw files… I downloaded a program but haven’t tried it, seems like a hassle…

  • By Alyza Keya - 5:08 AM on October 30, 2015  

    Brings great opportunity for me. Now I can try in all of my Workstations.

  • By Bryn - 8:20 PM on October 30, 2015  

    Anyone tried with windows 10?

    • By Susanne Petersen - 11:11 PM on February 5, 2016  

      I put Windows 10 on one laptop. Photoshop works fine on it, but other sites don’t. I’m pretty much computer illiterate, but I find it difficult, and would not do it again. I’m not putting it on the other laptop.

  • By Catherine - 9:16 PM on November 7, 2015  

    I have upgraded from Photoshop Elements 10 to 14 and am having trouble with the font sizing. is there a fix?

  • By Carol - 12:59 PM on November 8, 2015  

    I would like to buy Photoshop Elements 14 but is it compatiable with Windows 10??? Please let me know asap thank you.

  • By Richard - 12:33 PM on November 9, 2015  

    How do I get canon studio pro plugin to work with Photoshop elements 14?

    • By Edward - 4:03 PM on May 16, 2016  

      I was informed by Cannon they have not upgraded Studio Pro to accept release 14. I wish I had know prior to buying Photoshop Elements 14! I purchased a large Cannon format printer assuming I could use this plug-in. Very disappointed from lack of information. Cannon said they are working on the software, but don’t hold your breath.

  • By Francene - 7:32 PM on November 14, 2015  

    I purchased the Elements upgrade to 14 two weeks ago, and can’t get it to open the organizer. The support group told me, via skype, to uninstall both the 12 that I had previously used, and the 14; and then reintall 14. Now I have nothing; all the thumbnail photos are gone, and I still can’t get it to work. I’ve reset PREFERENCE so many times, I can’t even count them. Wish I’d never gone this path.

  • By Penni Rubin - 1:10 PM on November 16, 2015  

    I bought Elements 14 at Costco last week and when I typed in the serial # it said it was not valid for Elements 14 and I cannot figure out how to use it. What do I do?

    • By Francene - 2:17 PM on November 16, 2015  

      I also noticed that Costco was selling a very discounted edition of Elements 14, so I stopped in to check it out. There were completely sold out, I was told; and to try Costco online. Which also shows out of stock.

      • By Richard Shay - 10:46 AM on June 25, 2016  

        Any rumors on when Elements 15 may come out

    I have adobe photo elements premiere version 12 and have not been able to use it on my new Dell XPS with hi resolution touch screen monitor, because the menu displays in too tiny a font. Should I return this new computer, and get one without a high res screen, or does the latest adobe photo elements premiere version 14 display the menus properly?

  • By Mark - 6:09 AM on April 10, 2016  

    Do you know if Adobe has any plan to reintroduce dark interface theme in Elements product series? Like in Photoshop Elements 10. I’m used to dark interfaces, and lack of this feature, at least for me, is a blocker to buy Photoshop Elements.

  • By PC Guardian - 6:43 AM on May 1, 2016  

    I recently purchased a Dell P2715Q 4K monitor and discovered that most software does not scale on it. Does the latest Adobe elements have the x2 gui option so it can be used on a 4K monitor?

  • By QC Tina - 4:53 PM on June 12, 2016  

    Why does Photoshop Elements 14 suddenly interrupt the process of editing a jpg with the “Building Content and Effects” process? It takes about 15 minutes to complete and occurs periodically as I’m editing a large number of files.

  • By QC Tina - 2:38 PM on June 14, 2016  

    I uninstalled and reinstalled PS14 today, and an update from 12/2015 loaded. Started editing pics again, and after about the 10th picture, I got the same process message “Building Contents and Effects” which takes about 15 minutes to finish. Is this a standard process within Photoshop??? If so, it’s completely counterproductive! Please, does someone who has knowledge of this software know why this is happening?
