Adobe updates Photoshop and Premiere Elements software

Posted by Mark Raby

Adobe today announced new versions of their Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements software Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 will be available later this year.

According to the company, the user interface of Premiere Elements 3.0 has been "radically simplified", in part because of an expanding population of amateur videographers that flock to video sharing outlets like YouTube and Veoh.

Photoshop Elements 5.0 adds new features such as the black-and-white conversion tool that will be able to convert any color image to an artistic, elegant picture, according to Adobe. Elements Users will also be able to share their photos online on Adobe Photoshop Showcase.

Both Premiere Elements 3.0 and Photoshop Elements 5.0 will be available in October for $100 each. They can also be purchased together in a $149 bundle.
