article imageAdobe Unveils Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac

By David Silverberg     Jan 10, 2008 in Technology
Adobe announced its Photoshop Elements 6 software will be available for Mac users in the second quarter of this year. Elements 6 is known as a powerful suite of editing tools for digital photos.
Digital Journal — Mac users can now join the party. Five months after releasing Photoshop Elements 6 for PC owners, Adobe announced its latest photo-editing software will soon cater to Macintosh owners. The Mac-friendly software will debut in the second quarter of 2008, and is priced at $90.
In advance of the ship date, though, attendees at Apple’s Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco can get a glimpse of the software next week.
Adobe’s Photoshop Elements 6, released in September 2007 for PC users, offers digital editing tools for any level of photo enthusiast. One technology lets you combine the best facial expressions and body language from a series of shots to create a single group shot. Customizable layouts let you make scrapbook pages, photo books and greeting cards, while also allowing you to burn to CD or DVD. Another cool option in Elements 6 is the ability to print photos on to real U.S. postage stamps.
John Loiacono, senior vice president of Creative Solutions at Adobe, said in a statement:
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.
The software can now be pre-ordered through adobe.com, and will later be available on Amazon and in stores such as Best Buy, Circuit City, Staples, Apple Stores and many more.
It’s about time Mac users got the same impressive software that PC users currently enjoy. Adobe realizes how fanatic Mac heads can be when it comes to getting the same respect as Windows fans. There’s no reason why Mac users shouldn’t be lapping up the goodies inside Elements 6; so sometime in mid-2008, expect to see more finely Photoshopped photos popping up on Mac-friendly blogs and sites.
