Adobe Photoshop Elements is a raster graphics editor or software that’s perfectly suited for entry-level photographers and hobbyists. Just like its predecessor, it lets users compose, change, organize, and share graphical images. Although it has a couple of features that are found in the professional version, Adobe Photoshop Elements only has lesser and simpler options.
A Brief Background of Adobe Photoshop Elements
Adobe Photoshop Elements was introduced originally alongside version 6 of Adobe Photoshop. It mainly targeted photography enthusiasts, thus it lacked a couple of features that are often useful in the print production environment.
It includes a few set of Photoshop plug-ins and features that are perfect for non-experts. They include the ability to change the skin tone in pictures and remove the red-eye effect.
However, Adobe Photoshop Elements has some limitations and exclusions. First, it’s not capable of exporting files in the CMYK color mode and performing detailed soft-proofing. Moreover, it does not provide an option to use or add keyboard shortcuts in the Mac system.
Here are some of the features of Adobe Photoshop Elements:
