Adobe Announces Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac
Thursday, January 10, 2008
Posted by: Charles

Adobe today announced Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac, a major upgrade to its consumer photo-editing software for Mac OS X. According the company, Photoshop Elements 6 software for Mac combines power and simplicity so consumers at all experience levels can easily achieve outstanding results with their digital photos. In advance of its early Q2 2008 ship date, the Macintosh community will get its first peek at the new product features during the Macworld Conference & Expo, Jan. 14-17, 2008 in San Francisco.

"We're excited to showcase a brand new version of Photoshop Elements at Macworld," said John Loiacono, senior vice president of Creative Solutions at Adobe. "In this release, we've focused on going beyond the basics to make everyday and advanced tasks even easier to achieve. Photoshop Elements 6 for Macintosh allows people to organize and find photos quickly, unleash powerful editing tricks without any heavy lifting, and creatively share photos that give them all the bragging rights."

Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac will run on Leopard, (Mac OS X v 10.5), as well as previous versions of Mac OS X starting with 10.4.8. It is available for pre-order now and is priced at $89.99, or $69.99 for upgrades from earlier versions.

Too much duplication of iPhoto features for my taste; so far I've been very happy with Pixelmator (and the devs are said to be prepping some more features like a "Save for Web" option in 1.02) at almost half the price and it has all the features in PS I use most often.

Pixelmator might have inspired its darker looking UI. Wink



Oh well, it's good to see Elements finally go Universal. My wife has been a user for a long time. She'll probably want to upgrade.

Yea, the Windows version went with that interface in version 5, it is arguably the best PS Elements version yet, but it is a little more bloated (or as Adobe would say, Feature Rich).

I've been thinking buying Pixelmator for a couple of months. I'll probably wait for the final details of Photoshop Elements 6 before deciding now.

It's in the MacHeist bundle, kind of bummed I already own it as that is the most compelling app this year.

Adobe is lame..

Here is why.

With the introduction of Leopard. Adobe decided to try to scr#$ there consumers telling them they couldn't use the photoshop cs 3 upgrade in leopard. Then telling people they could then they lied and said photoshop cs wont run under leopard. Guess what in 10.5.1 it does so i have had it with adobe they are a bait and switch company and deserve to go out of bussiness we wouldn't miss them.

The best photoshop alternative i have seen by far that does everything including everything that photoshop does.

Isn't a mac piece of software at all but a boot camp piece of software called.

Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI it does everything adobe's photoshop does in a simple easy to use system.

This is very good news. I have been thinking of getting a new Mini Mac to become the lead machine in place of my current Mini Mac running on 10.3.9. with Elements 3.

I notice that Leopard 10.5 now supports Nikon Capture NX which I also use.
