ADOBE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS 5.0 & ADOBE PREMIERE 3.0

Postpone your shopping for photo and video editing software for a few weeks. Later this month, Adobe is shipping upgrades to Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0. With luck there will be more progress on integrating the programs with each other – and integrating the photo organizer more deeply with the editing tools. Watch the reviews, though – as I’m forced to keep pointing out, new versions are not necessarily a step forward.
