    Adobe Announces Photoshop Elements 6.0 for Mac

    [​IMG]

    Adobe announced that Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0 for Mac will become available in the second quarter of 2008. Adobe plans to show off the latest version of Elements at Macworld Expo next week.
    Adobe details the new features on their website, including a number of video demos:

    - Create a Group Shot from multiple photos
    - Make easy selections
    - Use curves adjustments

    Version 6.0 of Elements finally brings the Mac version of Elements in par with the Windows version. Adobe had previously skipped realeasing Elements 5.0 for the Mac. Version 6 also introduces Intel Mac support and will be available for $89.99.

    I often wonder about using Elements instead of iPhoto....anyone have a compelling argument on that?

    just looked through the site, and don't think it's worth the £69.32 they are charging in the UK.

    I wonder what happened to Photoshop Elements 5 for the Mac. As far as I know the last version for the Mac was 4 (or am I wrong again !!) ... :eek:

    Shouldn't the title of this be: "Adobe Announces that they still aren't shipping Photoshop Elements 6.0 for the Mac"

    I don't think any application has been so prolifically produced as PS elements? I still have PSE2 on a PC that is only 3 years old

    Arguments in favor of iPhoto

    • Bridge isn't as good a management tool as iPhoto, in my opinion
    • iLife and iWork integration
    • Easy publishing options (e.g. photobooks)

    I think PSE makes a great supplement for iPhoto or Aperture (or LIghtroom for that matter) though.

    How about fixing that Acrobat CS3 for Leopard? First things first!

    It's about time

    Geez....It's about time. Wonder why they skipped Elements 5. I was always looking for it on the internet. It is slow in an Intel Mac. Hope the new Elements is going to be faster.

    Elements can do lots of things iPhoto cant.
    Most digital photographers could probably manage all their needs with Elements without having to go to the expense of the full Photoshop. In fact from what I hear version 6 for the PC has a few cool features that CS3 hasn't got.

    Let's go easy on Adobe guys - the first shipping intel macs were only 2 years ago. And you know, developers were hardly informed of the switch
    that's sarcasm if anybody is feeling very dense today
    that said - I will probably get this

    Do you need to select things? Cut things out? Alter the color of part of an images instead of the whole thing? Merge different images and add text for some kind of poster?

    These are things iPhoto is not meant for.

    It's £45.82 to upgrade from a previous licensed version of Adobe Photoshop Elements, Photoshop Album, Photoshop LE, or Adobe PhotoDeluxe.

    Often there are little features that are put into Elements and not in Photoshop, and later incorporated into Photoshop because they were so popular and easy to use in Elements. Such is the case with the Quick Selection feature where you paint an area you want selected. (Unless I am wrong, it appeared first in Elements 4.0, then in CS2 or 3... I forget these things).

    Hurray! Finally! How long have we been waiting for this? I'm still ploughing on with PSE 2.0 on my Mac. I like the no-nonsense interface in 2.0, don't need the most comsumerist facilities in the later versions, but will very much welcome the speed from the native code.

    Elements is more of a photo editor then an organiser. Although now it does have some good abitlies to organize photos but it lacks integration with other Apple iLife programs

    But Elements can do edits that just can't be done with iPhoto. Elements is very much like Photoshop in the it has seltion tools, layers and masks

    The best thing to do is to use iPhoto to organize your images and then in iPhoto's Perference panel you can specify an external editor to use. Select Elements as that editor. then when you double click an image inside iPhoto that image comes up inside elements and automatically goes back to iPhoto when you save and quite in Elements. Its nearly seamless. The down side is that iPhoto starts up a new copy of Elements each time, so it is slow or at least is was slow with Elements version 4 because of Rosetta, a universal binary PSE6 will be faster

    So, how would I go about upgrading from Elements 1 (OS 9) to Elements 6. Will I just need a previous installation key?

    Adobe still says Macintosh. I haven't heard of a Mac called that in a long time. It is sort of like calling Ben "Obi-Wan Kenobi".

    I like how the Mac demo videos are on Windows.

    Excellent feedback. Thanks y'all. Once I get my new MBP I should have enough horsepower to handle the spawning of PSE... :)
