Map view

Easier complex edge selection

You can brush over the fine details and (in theory) Photoshop will be able to create better selection edges than before. In practice, it's frustratingly inconsistent. For instance, here it worked well for the fur against bright white, but I think the very faint shadow behind the gray fur is confusing the software.

Haze reduction

This is one feature that's unambiguously useful. You can control the intensity of the effect and the sensitivity -- whatever that means. Unfortunately, Adobe isn't very good about explaining how to choose your settings.

Shake reduction

The software lets you create target areas that the algorithm should prioritize and you can control the intensity of the effect. "Sensitivity" in this module seems to have a different meaning than "sensitivity" in the haze removal.

Too shaky

Unfortunately, shake reduction doesn't work well on photos with serious camera shake. Here the original is on the right and the processed photo on the left.

Resize guided edit targets devices

In this guided edit, you choose whether you're resizing for screen or print. Unfortunately, it doesn't address matching the file resolution to the print output resolution, which can result in unattractive prints when you're sizing up a photo.

Resize guided edit

If you're confused about how to resize images, this GE will make it easier, but it won't deliver optimal results -- you're really better off learning how to resize.

Resize GE crop preview

When you're resizing for something that has a different aspect ratio, Photoshop lets you select what gets cropped.

Smart Looks

The new Smart Looks algorithm analyzes your photo and suggests the five "best" adjustments to make.

Smart Looks

Most of the suggested adjustments seem to be variations on contrast, saturation and white balance.

Smart Looks are a nice way to quickly adjust the colors and contrast of a photo.

Here's the audio

Though Adobe didn't add or update any of the audio-editing features in Premiere Elements, it did make them more findable, and added an audio-centric timeline view.

Premiere Elements' Color Pop Guided Edit

Unlike Photoshop Elements, Premiere's Guided Edits actually show you how to create the effects yourself by walking through them with explanations. This edit takes you through converting the video to grayscale and popping a single hue (by reducing the saturation of all the colors but the one you want).

Encode by device

To simplify your encoding, Premiere Elements now lets you target by the output device you plan to play the video on and then provides just a few simple choices about quality and size.

Motion Titles

There are just a few options for the graphics in a Motion Title, and I don't think you can delete any of the objects.
