Introducing Photoshop Elements 4.0

With the release of Elements, Adobe recognized that not all digital imaging consumers are the same.

Professionals do require a vast array of tools and functions to facilitate almost any type of image

manipulation, but there is a signifi cant, and growing, number of users that want the robustness of

Photoshop but don’t require all the ‘bells and whistles’. This makes Elements sound like a cut-down

version of Photoshop, and to some extent it is, but there is a lot more to this package than a mere subset

of Photoshop’s features. Adobe has taken the time to listen to its customers, and has designed and

included in Elements a host of extra tools and features that are not available in Photoshop. It’s this

combination of proven strength and new functions that makes Elements the perfect imaging tool for

digital camera and scanner owners who need to produce professional-level graphics economically.
