Adobe Photoshop Elements 12
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 12. New features include:

- A friendly, intuitive environment makes it easy to navigate and do what you want to do.
- Quick, Guided, and Expert editing modes enable any level of user to get great results, quickly and easily.
- Quick Frames, Effects, and Textures let you apply dynamic effects with ease.
- New Guided Edits for photo puzzles, restoring old photos, and simulating zoom burst provide help along the way so you can get the look you envision.
- Content-Aware Move allows you to move objects and have the background automatically filled in.
- Content-Aware Fill for the Straighten tool auto-adjusts and aligns the background and automatically fills in the gaps.
- And now, take your Elements photos and videos with you, wherever you go, on your smartphone or tablet.*

Note the download here will give you the Adobe Download Manager where you'll need to login, choose Photoshop Elements 12 and download.

Verdict:

There's plenty of competition, but Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 is still the leading consumer photo editor

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
