Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 Features

Empower students with user-friendly tools
It’s easy to produce professional-caliber digital images for reports, websites, yearbooks, slide shows, newsletters, and much more.

Stay organized and on track
Powerful, flexible keyword tags help teachers and students organize and locate photos. The Folder View feature helps teachers oversee multiple projects and students stay on track by making it easy to access photos and add, delete, or move folders.

Use one comprehensive toolset
Teachers don’t have to scramble around assembling a toolset — it’s all there. Students can perfect, transform, organize, and share their photos with one product.

Enhance and perfect photos
Students can easily brush away wrinkles and unwanted objects, make a range of adjustments to a specific area or object, or quickly separate an object from its background.

Create entertaining slide shows
Teachers can have their students creating effects-filled slide shows in no time! Students can easily include transitions, pan and zoom effects, captions, music, and narration.

Say goodbye to red-eye
An old nemesis to teachers and students alike is easily defeated because red-eye is automatically eliminated as photos are downloaded from the camera. Red-eye also can be removed from single shots without even clicking on the photo!

Easily pick winners
Students can zero in on the best of many similar photos while viewing them side by side using Photo Compare.

Send themed photo e-mail
Common greetings become mini-galleries when teachers and students send photos displayed within e-mail instead of as attachments. Add decorative backgrounds and frames in a variety of themes — and the greeting is grand.

Add special effects
Classroom work will stand out by adding a multitude of special effects to photos, including 3D effects, drop shadows, bevels, animation, and more.

Get high quality with camera raw and 16-bit support
It’s a snap for students to work with their cameras’ raw files and use 16-bit image support for smoother, more accurate color and great overall results.

Get the big, colorful picture
Classroom projects go into full bloom when students use the Histogram palette to see the color range in their photos so they can easily make optimal adjustments.

Save and display work online
Students can save time and keep track of their work by uploading photos to personal online albums that can be updated with new photos at any time.
