Use Photoshop Elements to organize, edit, and create brilliant digital photos, and share them via print, the web, Facebook, and more. And now, take your Elements photos and videos with you, wherever you go, on your smartphone or tablet.*
Photoshop Elements is used to organize, edit, create, and share photos. Adobe Premiere Elements is used to organize, edit, create, and share movies.

Most free photo editors offer a very limited set of editing tools. Photoshop Elements is the #1 selling consumer photo editing software in America because it provides powerful and fun editing options to every level of user. Combine photos into multilayered compositions and create layouts for photo keepsakes like photo books, scrapbook pages, and more. Explore new photo looks and projects at your own pace while getting help as you need it in Quick, Guided, and Expert editing modes.
