Photos get content aware fills from Photoshop CS5 and Guided Edits, among other tricks. Movies get AVCHD handling without encoding, audio filters to help out those tiny mics and DVD chapters, among even more tricks (like Cartoon video effects).
As cameras combine still and video capture, the head scratcher is when software will. Adobe has been bundling Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements for a while now, but this is the first release that gives OS X users both the Organizer and Premiere, too.
And the type is bigger for high resolution screens.
We'll give that one a paragraph of its own. No one reads phone books or classified ads anymore, so why should we have to read tiny type on high resolution monitors? (We know why but we're glad Adobe did something about it.)
We highlight the coolest tricks in the new releases, including the Healing Brush's new content aware mode, Guided Edits and style matching for photos, plus audio effects and video effects for movies. Read the review for the whole story.
