Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 review roundup

If the first reviews are a good indicator about the 'goes to 11' version of Photoshop Elements, we have a winner in our hands. Imaging Resource were the first ones ready with a review, and they're really thankful for adobe's efforts to rejuvenate the UI: 

"Nobody is getting any younger. So outright prolonged applause for Elements' redesigned interface. Its subtle use of color icons should start a trend. And the simplified layout really does avoid the confusion and frustration of products of this complexity."

MACworld on the other hand focuses on the weird differencies windows and mac versions of the same Adobe app are plagued by:

"The ability to create slideshows complete with captions, pan and zoom effects, transitions, voice narration, and music works only on Windows. Similarly, the ability to send a personalized, themed photo email with captions and backgrounds, and the ability to create mini-movies by stringing together a series of still shots, are also Windows only."

The Cnet review focuses a bit more on the glittery filter and effects department, and on the connectivity front:

"The program now has integration with Google maps, allowing for drag-and-drop geotagging and filtering by map. It generates events automatically by date or time, and you can adjust the time interval interactively." 

The reviewer at TechRadar is also very pleased with the result: 

"Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 is a mature, thoughtful program that has eschewed flashy new features in favour of a genuinely more approachable interface. That said, the Refine Edge tool in itself is enough to warrant the upgrade; the extra filters are the icing on the cake"

The British Magazine PC Pro reaches the James Bondian conclusion of 'nobody does it better':

"There's plenty to admire in Elements 11, and we'd be hard-pushed to name a better all-round editing application for photography amateurs and enthusiasts."

Finally the Photoshop Elements channel at Youtube is already hosting a variety of 'how to' and what's new' videos.
