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/.

onOne Software, Inc. announces the immediate availability of two upgrades to their award-winning PhotoFrame plug-in. PhotoFrame 4 Professional and Standard Editions are designed to help photographers add the perfect finishing touch to digital photos.

Now supporting Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 and Apple Aperture 2.1, PhotoFrame 4 helps photographers of all skill levels quickly and easily create one-of-a-kind works of art with their images. PhotoFrame 4 adds details once mastered only in the darkroom like unique edge effects, frames, borders, adornments and texture overlays. Expanding upon onOne Software’s award-winning plug-in for Adobe Photoshop software, PhotoFrame 4 delivers hundreds of new frames, including exclusive content from professional wedding photographers Kevin Kubota and Vicki Taufer, that today's digital photographers are demanding for their professional and personal work.

PhotoFrame 4 also includes a new easy-to-use frame library with new library management options, updated user-interface, cutting-edge new content, new output options for added user control, and more.

New Features in PhotoFrame 4
New Frame Library – The new Library window in PhotoFrame 4 lets users easily search, browse and preview frames, backgrounds, textures and adornments on their image in real time. Users can immediately see just what each frame selection will look like with their image. A new streamlined light table style view allows users to search and sort frames quickly. With the improved preview quality users can zoom in and choose the best frame for every photo.

New Library Management Options New in PhotoFrame 4 is the ability to change the location of the frame library. Photographers can choose the drive and location and even automatically relocate the library later if needed. In addition, photographers who create and add their own frames can have them automatically added to the PhotoFrame 4 Library making them easier to find in the future.

New & Optimized Content – New cutting-edge content has been added to onOne Software's PhotoFrame 4 allowing photographers to add an exciting and modern look to their photos and albums. The new content includes more realistic film edges along with new texture overlays, backgrounds and adornments. Additionally, the frame content in PhotoFrame 4 has been completely re-mastered providing photographers with a higher quality preview when choosing the best frame for their photo.

New Output Options – The new options palette allows photographers to control how the frames are applied to their photo. Frames, overlays and adornments can be added to the current layer, or a new layer. In addition, frames can be rendered to their own layer allowing for further adjustments or editing in Adobe Photoshop software. Frames from PhotoFrame 4 can even be applied as a layer mask allowing photographers to selectively blend multiple layers together. The output quality of frames in PhotoFrame 4 has been improved for large images and the on-screen preview even displays the layer options just like they will appear in Adobe Photoshop.

Integration with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 and Apple Aperture 2.1 Photographers using Lightroom 2 or Aperture 2.1 can easily access their favorite frames, overlays and adornments from within each application. Photographers can apply a preset to a single photo or an entire batch of photos. They can even open one photo to adjust the frame settings and then apply it to a selection of additional images. The integration between Lightroom 2 and PhotoFrame 4 Professional Edition requires Photoshop CS2, Photoshop CS3 or Photoshop CS4. The integration between Aperture 2.1 and PhotoFrame 4 Professional Edition does not require any additional host applications.

Resizing and Adjusting Multiple Frames PhotoFrame 4 allows photographers to mix, match and combine up to 32 frames together in layers just like in Photoshop. With PhotoFrame 4, photographers can select multiple frame layers and adjust their size, orientation, rotation angle, opacity and more in a single step. Additionally, the background image layer can now be adjusted separately to fit perfectly within the combination of edge effects being added.

Availability and Pricing
PhotoFrame 4 comes in two variations – a Professional Edition and a Standard Edition, which are available for $259.95 and $159.95 respectively direct from onOne Software and select, authorized resellers in the United States and around the world. 

The Professional Edition of PhotoFrame 4 includes all of the functionality of the Standard Edition and adds additional frame, edge and adornment content from some of the top wedding photographers and Photoshop gurus in the industry as well as support for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 and Apple Aperture 2.1.

Both editions of PhotoFrame 4 are immediately available for electronic download direct from onOne Software and from authorized resellers in DVD format.
