Want a light version of Photoshop?
Great Find: Adobe Photoshop Elements
Target Audience: Computer users who edit photos
Content: The latest Great Find postabout Photoshop tutorials sparked discussion about photo editing tools. While Photoshop is the industry standard for image editing, and an excellent professional tool, the full version is expensive at around $600, and it’s complicated to learn for the average computer user.
Chris inquired whether there was a stripped down, less expensive version.
Yes, there is! The light version is called Photoshop Elements. At around $100 for the Windows version and $80 for Mac, it’s an affordable alternative that’s powerful. Click the screen shot to take you there.
Here are three features I like:
- Quick Fix mode: rotate and crop, size, sharpen, fix red eye, adjust color and contrast
- Enhance photos: convert color to B&W or sepia, apply special effects and filters
- Create composites: combine photos, erase backgrounds
Take advantage of the 30-day trial. Let me know what you think!
Next time I’ll write about another alternative. Wait until you see itl!
