This not only eliminates one of the biggest annoyances from the process, but also serves to protect the laptop from damage and theft (industry reports say that as many as 12,000 laptops are lost or stolen at US airports every week-a staggering 600,000 or more each year).

Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) has announced Adobe Premiere Elements
7 software with new Photoshop.com membership. Available for Windows, this upgrade
features easy to use movie making options so users can create compelling stories
in minutes, while also offering opportunities to grow and stretch their editing
abilities. For the first time, Adobe Premiere Elements 7 customers will have the
option to sign-up for one year of membership on Photoshop.com, extending the capabilities
of the software by providing new movie themes, sound effects, music, overlays,
menu templates and helpful tutorials on a regular basis. Other benefits include:
automatic online backup and storage of photos and videos and access from virtually
anywhere.

In addition, Adobe today announced Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 software, a complete
photo-editing solution. Available separately or together in a single retail package,
Adobe Photoshop Elements & Adobe Premiere Elements bundle give photo and video
enthusiasts everything they need for the complete digital imaging experience.



Available for Windows, Photoshop Elements 7 makes it quick and easy to organize,
edit, create and share amazing photos with others by leveraging the editing power
of Photoshop software, the professional standard for image editing. For the first
time, Photoshop Elements 7 customers will have the option to sign-up for one year
of membership on Photoshop.com, extending the capabilities of the software by
providing helpful templates and creative tutorials delivered on a regular basis.




Photoshop Elements makes it easy to tell amazing stories through memorable photos.
The new Scene Cleaner, based on Adobe's innovative Photomerge technology,
creates the ideal photo by letting users simply brush away unwanted subjects,
such as tourists in a vacation shot who may be impacting the main subject of the
photo. The new Smart Brush helps users apply incredible effects to a specific
area of a photo with a single stroke, making it a snap to improve lighting and
add rich textures with access to more than fifty sophisticated effects. Common
editing tasks, such as whitening teeth or brightening blue skies, are a breeze
to fix with the one-step Quick Fix tools. Surfaces can be softened while retaining
edges and details crisp with a new filter ideal for portrait shots. Also, a new
selection of Online Albums, based on Adobe Flash® technology, offers users
a richer interactive experience.



Adobe Premiere Elements 7 allows people to produce their own blockbuster with
no experience required. The software intelligently analyzes each movie clip (including
those in the newly-supported AVCHD format) for quality, number of faces, sound
and more. It then applies Smart Tags so users can quickly find the best clips
in seconds. InstantMovie creates professional-looking movies with a simple drag
and drop of a theme onto a series of video clips. It adds a package of music,
titles and transitions based on a theme such as birthday, wedding or extreme sports.



With new Videomerge, users can exercise their imagination by creating videos that
make it appear as if they're performing on stage at a concert, standing
in front of a popular tourist attraction or walking on the moon. Videomerge allows
users to easily create a "green screen" effect and automatically place
themselves within the scene, without requiring any prior video editing skills
or knowledge.



Users can display their finished movies on high-quality DVD or high-definition
Blu-ray Disc, on any screen from a mobile phone to an HD flat screen TV, or upload
directly to YouTube from within Premiere Elements.



Users can push their creativity even further with Photoshop.com membership, offered
in two levels, Basic1 and Plus2. For those who want fresh, creative project ideas
delivered straight to the desktop, the option to purchase an annual Photoshop.com
Plus membership guarantees new cinematic inspiration will come on a regular basis.
Tutorials, movie themes, special effects and seasonal templates are delivered
directly to the software, ensuring users always have new creative ideas and themes
to create impressive results. In addition, Photoshop.com Plus membership provides
20GB of storage - enough for 15,000 photos, four hours of DVD-quality videos or
a combination of both. Online back-up keeps memories safe from computer failure
or natural disaster, with access from anywhere, via a personal account linked
to the software. Photoshop.com Basic membership can be experienced for free, providing
5GB of storage and access to photos and videos virtually anywhere.



More information about Photoshop.com membership can be found at www.adobe.com/products/premiereel/membership/.

Compact and lightweight, the new 2.4x zoom DX-NIKKOR lens offers a focal length of 10 to 24mm, creating a picture angle ranging from 109-degrees to 61-degrees (FX-format equivalent of 15-36mm).

The AF-S DX-NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED will be available at Nikon authorized dealers beginning May 2009 at an estimated selling price of $899.95*.  For more information, please visit www.nikonusa.com.
