Photoshop Elements 9 Editor includes editing features available in the full version of Adobe Photoshop. Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 Guided Edits offer 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 retouching. Users can instantly remove clutter from photos or repair imperfections with one stroke of the Spot Healing Brush, which uses content-aware technology adapted from Photoshop CS5.
For group shots, Photoshop Elements 9 Editor combines the best facial expressions from a number of different shots into a single photo. And, the new Adobe Photomerge Style Match analyzes stylistic characteristics of any photo, such as contrast or color tone, and automatically applies them to another photo. One-step shortcuts provide quick fixes such as whitening teeth or creating vibrant blue skies, and automated layout options quickly showcase selected photos. Users can also create and print customized calendars, cards and photo books right at home.
Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 Editor can be downloaded immediately for US$79 from the Mac App Store.
