Adobe has released Photoshop Elements 6, a new version of the company’s consumer photo editing application. The new version has been released for Windows only, with a Mac version expected from the company in early 2008.
Adobe said the Mac version of Photoshop Elements will be released later than the Windows version simply because they are different development schedules. The development tracks for the Windows and Mac Elements products have been released separately for several years now.
The Windows version of Photoshop Elements includes several new features including Photomerge, that allows the user to combine the best of a series of pictures; a Quick Selection Tool that lets you select and adjust in a single click; and a Guided Edit mode that walks the user through the steps to improve a photo.
There is no indication if the Mac version will include these same features.
Photoshop Elements 6 for Windows costs $99.99.
