Adobe Photoshop Elements 14
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 14. New features include:

- Shake reduction. Eliminate blur.
- Haze removal. Clearer backgrounds in your landscape pictures!
- Auto smart looks. Five new suggestions for an even cooler-looking picture!
- Straighten tool
- Refine selection brush
- Guided edits. Visually re-imagined for you!
- Speed effect. Zoom in or out in style!
- Resize. Change the size of your photo in quick, easy steps.
- Panorama. Now in a step-by-step workflow. Stitch away!

Verdict:

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

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
