Five Hot New Features in Photoshop Elements 7 for Windows
Adobe announced Photoshop Elements 7 for Windows this week, and since I'm deep into working on the update to my Photoshop Elements Visual QuickStart Guide, I wrote an article for the Peachpit Web site about what's new in Elements 7: Five Hot New Features in Photoshop Elements 7 for Windows. I talk about the integration with Photoshop.com (adding a level to Photoshop Express) and the great offshoot of that pairing: automatic online photo backups. I also cover the new Smart Brush tool; Photomerge Scene Cleaner, which lets you remove people and objects from photos; and the improved text searching capabilities.
The software will ship in late September, and the book should be available shortly after.
