Adobe Photoshop Elements
What is Adobe Photoshop Elements?
The Adobe Photoshop Elements is the consumer product version of Adobe Photoshop and has several simplified features from the major product, causing it to be priced at about 1/6 of the cost of the original retail product. Photoshop Elements is specifically geared for people who are beginners on raster graphics editing, targeted for people who may not need Photoshop’s other features and are instead focused on editing basic touches on their photos and organizing them. The Adobe Photoshop Elements’ predecessor was Photoshop LE (Limited Edition), which had the same limitations; a spin-off of the Photoshop Elements is the web-based Photoshop Express, a free version, with even more limitations than Elements.
Adobe offers Photoshop in several editions, and since version 8 its releases had been appended with the suffix “CS”, which means “Creative Suite”. Photoshop’s various editions – the standard Photoshop, Photoshop Extended (which has several 3D image creation and manipulation), Photoshop Elements (a starter edition of Photoshop which includes only the most basic feature set), Photoshop Lightroom (image post-processing), and the free, web-based Photoshop Express – are all available for Windows and Mac OS platforms. Additionally, through the use of Wine, it can run on Linux, and Photoshop Express also runs on iOS and Android devices.
