Adobe Photoshop Elements 13
Organise, edit and share your photos

Adobe Photoshop Elements is the consumer version of Photoshop: low cost, easy to use, yet still full of powerful photo editing and management features.

The program makes it easy to organise your images into albums, for instance, and tag them with keywords so they're easy to locate later. But that's just the start.

Photoshop Elements also includes automatic face recognition, so you can find all the shots of a specific friend or family member in seconds. Well, almost all: awkward lighting or faces shot at an angle may defeat the recognition scheme, but it does at least get you started and you can always tag the trickier shots yourself.

And the program's Smart Tags go even further. Run Photoshop Elements Auto Analyzer and it will automatically assign them tags like "High Quality" or "Low Quality", "Faces" or "Long Shot", "In Focus" or "Blurred". And so you can double-click the Faces tag, say, and instantly see shots of friends and family. This regularly makes errors, too, but it's fine as an initial tagging tool, and will save you a great deal of time when organising a large photo collection.

Of course there are also plenty of amazing editing options. Recompose is particularly interesting, letting you resize a photo, keeping the key subjects while losing unnecessary background detail. Photomerge combines the best from a series of photos of the same subject to deliver one perfect result. And new preview thumbnails display a range of adjustments for any particular tweak, making it easy to choose your favourite.

There are also creative projects, where you can quickly design your own photo books, greetings cards, slideshows and more. Your favourite images can be shared with others via Yahoo! Maps, iPhones, your own online album, and more. And multiple backup options help keep your valuable photos save from PC disaster.

This is the brand new Photoshop Elements 13. New features include:

- Stand out from the crowd on Facebook with feature for blending cover photo and profile pic.
- Photomerge Compose - remix and mashup photos.
- Improved: selection tools - nudge boundaries to tweak selection edges
- Automatic suggestions when cropping an image or applying an effect to it.
- Improved: slideshow now supports multiple photos on each slide
- Improved: Guided Edits tool

Note the download here will give you the Adobe Download Manager where you'll need to login, choose Photoshop Elements 13 and download.

Verdict:

There's plenty of competition, but Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 is still the leading consumer photo editor

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
