I am always looking for great editing software, but am terrified of the word “Photoshop”.  I have heard amazing things about Photoshop, but always feel a bit overwhelmed when I start trying to edit.  If you are like me, Are you a casual picture taker or just getting started in photography and want an easy way to organize, edit, and share your photos and videos?  The Elements lineup is all about simplicity and sharing with both your photos & videos.  The name “Photoshop” no longer intimidates me; now it excites me!  I can’t wait to get my photos home and start playing around with them.  I don’t have to put it off because it takes too long or is too involved anymore.  Photoshop Elements 14 has taken the ‘work’ out of photography work (so to say) and is now available at Best Buy.

I think my favorite feature has to be the side-by-side editing.  I can see what my photo looked like before and now.  So many times I have been editing a photo and cannot tell if it actually looks better than it did before.

I have used other photo editing software, but have never had one that could fix a dark photo so accurately.  Usually, you lose the features of the picture in the lightening process, but not with Adobe PhotoShop Elements 14!  Just look at the details of the “after” picture!  I am amazed!

Next, we had a little fun with the new “fun edit” tab in PhotoShop Elements 14.  Hannah had a soccer game yesterday and she’s a really fast runner.  I made her run like “The Fash”!  She loved it and it took me less than 5 minutes to do!  This software is the easiest and most fun I have had editing photos in a very long time.  The Elements lineup is all about simplicity and sharing with both your photos & videos ($149.99 reg. retail). Now available at Best Buy.
