Adobe has announced the release of Photoshop Elements 2024 and Premiere Elements 2024, the latest versions of its popular photo and video editing software for beginners and enthusiasts. The new editions come with a range of new features powered by Adobe’s Sensei AI platform, which aims to make editing easier and faster.
AI-Powered Tools for Photo Editing
Photoshop Elements 2024 introduces several new AI-powered tools that can help users achieve stunning results with just a few clicks. Some of these tools are:
- Background Replacement: This tool allows users to easily remove, edit or replace the background of an image with a different image or a solid color. Users can also adjust the size, position and rotation of the new background to fit their needs.
- Skin Smoothing: This tool automatically enhances the skin of the subjects in an image with a smooth, natural look. Users can adjust the level of smoothing and apply it to specific areas or the whole image.
- JPEG Artifact Removal: This tool removes the unwanted artifacts and noise that are often present in JPEG images, especially those taken with low-quality cameras or compressed for sharing online. Users can apply this tool to the whole image or to specific areas to improve the quality and clarity of their photos.
- Artistic Effects: This tool transforms images with graphics inspired by famous works of art or popular styles. Users can choose from a variety of presets or customize their own effects by adjusting the intensity, color and texture.
AI-Powered Tools for Video Editing
Premiere Elements 2024 also offers several new AI-powered tools that can help users create engaging videos with ease. Some of these tools are:
- Highlight Reels: This tool automatically creates a short video that showcases the best moments from a longer video. The tool analyzes the video for motion, close-ups and high-quality footage, and then stitches them together with transitions and music. Users can choose from different themes and styles for their highlight reels, or customize them with their own music and titles.
- Color Match: This tool allows users to match the color and tone of one video clip to another, creating a consistent look across different scenes or sources. Users can select a reference clip from their own videos or from Adobe Stock, and then apply the color match to one or more clips in their project.
- Audio Effects: This tool adds various audio effects to enhance the sound quality and mood of a video. Users can choose from effects such as reverb, echo, distortion, chorus and more, and apply them to individual clips or to the whole project.
