Adobe Releases Photoshop Elements 8

A new version of Adobe Photoshop Elements, Version 8, is now available for Windows and Mac, featuring what the company calls automated and intelligent photo-editing technology across both platforms.

The new version touts its enhanced Organizer, with which Windows users of Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 can easily manage media and find photo and video clips even faster than before, according to Adobe.

It adds that the new Auto-Analyzer automatically analyzes and tags media so users can quickly find the most interesting and highest quality content and People Recognition identifies people in photos, becoming more intelligent over time, as it learns to associate names and faces. Also, consumers can now automatically synch all their media across multiple computers.

Photoshop Elements 8 is now available for $100 (with a mail-in rebate for $20), and for another $50 a year, users can also buy Plus from within the product. Additional benefits include 20GB of storage for automatic online backup and sharing (up to 15,000 photos or four hours of DVD-quality video), as well as regular deliveries of tutorials, tips and tricks, seasonal artwork and interactive online templates sent directly to the desktop software.
