It's easier to see the full photos attached to the face tags.

You can now easily spot and tag photos without location information, and the map will display thumbnails of the photos.

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.

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.

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.

You can get a real-time preview of the effect.

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.

Adobe revised the interface for selecting a guided edit: when you scroll over the thumbnail, it shows a before and after.

The guided edit takes you through selecting an area, creating a duplicate blur and refining it.

Adobe now gives you several options for things to do after completing a guided edit.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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 14 introduces the Black and White with Color Pop and Slow/Fast Motion Guided Edits.

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).

The new Export/Share interface makes it easier to quickly encode and upload video to a few popular sites.

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.

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.

You can choose how the text animates onto the screen.
