Adobe today quietly released Photoshop Elements 10 and Premiere Elements 10, bringing with them new Facebook and YouTube integration, video editing and burring features, object-based search, and new color correcting and text curving and flowing effects.
New Facebook features allow you to auto analyze your images to identify people and tag them based on your Facebook friends. Those tags are then carried over to Facebook when uploading from Elements. A new object-based search is one of the most impressive enhancements, allowing you to find images containing a particular object such as a house or vehicle.
Other features include auto enhance and color correct for video footage, allowing you to “Automatically boost tone and vibrance without affecting skin tones, or use sliders to adjust color with complete control”. You can now also paint 1 of 100 new paint effects onto specific photo areas, add new text effects, and immediately upload video clips to Facebook and Youtube. Learn more about all the new features in these latest releases here.
Or, you can grab Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 and Premiere Elements 10 for $99 each on Amazon now. Curiously, Adobe hasn’t yet updated Photoshop Elements 9 Editor in the Mac App Store. It will be interesting to see what happens there.

Macworld reports that Adobe is making its first application available on the Mac App Store. Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 Editor is being offered for $79.99 which is less than the $99 boxed version (which is often discounted– for instance it is $60 currently after a $20 discount at Amazon).
Mac App Store version of the application costs $80 and includes all the same editing tools as the full version. However, unlike the full $100 version, it does not come bundled with the Adobe Elements Organizer application. This version is available only in English, and cannot be purchased anywhere outside of Apple’s Mac App Store.
The big deal here is that a huge software maker, that makes a lot of money on selling boxed software, is trying out the App Store. Adobe are also experimenting in the iOS App Store as well. The big question: Will Creative Suite be there soon with Apple taking 30% of the cut? Ouch.

Adobe, which last week updated Photoshop to work with its freshly announced iPad apps, has finally released said programs for iOS devices. Adobe Eazel, Adobe Nav and Adobe Color Lava, iPad companion apps for Photoshop, are now available for download on the App Store. Adobe Eazel is a finger-paint program that sells for five bucks. The app lets you send your artwork directly to Photoshop CS5 from any location, provided you have a network connection between your iPad and a computer. The remaining two apps sport even tighter integration with the popular image editing software. More information and videos after the break…

Now you can be creative on other devices and instantly incorporate what you create into Photoshop. You must install the 12.0.4 update to activate a remote connection between Photoshop CS5 and any apps that Adobe or third-party developers create to interact with Photoshop. For example, Photoshop CS5 must be updated to 12.0.4 to interact with three new iPad apps that Adobe has designed to work with it – Adobe Nav, Adobe Color Lava, and Adobe Eazel. Available on the App Store.

Hot off the presses, new tidbits hit us following the launch of Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 and new iPad apps from Adobe, both announced this morning. TUAW reports that Adobe’s video training resources now support iOS-friendly streaming to iPhones, iPods and iPads. Creative pros can now learn new tricks as they commute on train, go for a lunch break and so forth.
It’s an interesting – and rather telling – departure from Adobe’s stubborn insistence on serving Flash-formatted content only to iOS users. Another tidbit comes from MacRumors which profiles Photoshop Remote, the first third-party iPad app built using the Photoshop Touch SDK. Check it out in action right after the break. expand full story

Adobe has updated their Photoshop Express application for iOS to include support for the iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4 Retina Display in addition to support for iOS 4 quick-app-switching (multitasking). The new multitasking feature will work hand-in-hand with the new background uploading feature. This will let you upload your photos via the sharing option without actually having to stay in the application.
The update also promises a quicker experience with “faster photo captures” and “editing workflows.” The new Retina Display support will come in handy for iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4 users looking to have a crisper window for their photo-based creations. Also, the new update requires iOS 4.2 and is a universal binary for all iOS mobile devices.

Hi Adobe. I know I’ve said some critical things about Flash, and I sure do miss the days when you and Macromedia seemed more focused on creative applications, but I do like this demonstration of a version of Photoshop running on an iPad. expand full story

Adobe today updated its Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements for Mac and PC. Adobe is touting ‘magic’ in this upgrade saying:
“The Photoshop brand has been creating groundbreaking imaging magic for 20 years, and Photoshop Elements has been making that magic accessible to mere mortals for nearly a decade. The Content Aware Fill technology introduced with Photoshop CS5 is one of our most exciting innovations ever, so we’re thrilled to be able to make it accessible to photo and video enthusiasts in this latest Elements release.”
Content Aware Fill is a pretty awesome technology.
For an additional $50 Adobe offers a plus package which gives users 20GB of online space to share their media.

Numerous readers wrote in to let us know that Adobe’s Photoshop Express for iOS is literally complete garbage. The app constantly crashed on start up for many users and the app’s App Store comments are flooded with users experiencing the issues as well. Adobe was quick to act and an update that supposedly fixes the issues is now available.
Photoshop Express is a universal iOS app that launched yesterday and is formally known as Photoshop.com Mobile. The new application brings many new features including iPad support, but does not bring enhanced graphics for the iPhone 4s Retina display. Let us know in the comments if this update did anything for you.

You may recall the Adobe Photoshop.com Mobile app for iPhone and iPod touch and how it provided limited forms of Adobe’s editing tools. Today, the app has been rebranded as Adobe Photoshop Express and now supports the iPad. The app provides all the basic editing tools such as cropping, rotating, and color adjustments.
The iPad version allows users to edit multiple photos simaltaniously in either portrait or landscape. The app is still free universally, and surprisingly does not support the iPhone 4s Retina Display.

Adobe’s Photoshop.com has mobile apps for both iPhone and Android. Each platform features a similar set of features.
However, in an interesting twist today, Adobe announced that other Android application developers would be allowed to call up the Photoshop.com application to do photo editing inside their own applications.

The app was originally introduced in the US only in October, but is now available worldwide in any country that has an app store.
