Adobe has just stepped up its Mac App Store showing with the release of Adobe Photoshop Elements as well as Adobe Premier Elements. Both titles are branded as editors and do not include Elements Organizer.
Basically they are slightly slimmed down versions that also sport a $20 price reduction. Available immediately from the Mac App Store for $79.99, the release of both titles shows Adobe’s slow adoption process of Apple’s software distribution platform.
The App Store saw a slow start with large software manufacturers, but the inclusion of popular titles from Adobe and Autodesk prove that the platform is gaining steam. One of the hurdles though will always be the price cap of $999. Full versions of Adobe’s Creative Suite are not likely to make their way to the App Store as the retail price can easily exceed this cap.
Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements offer a slew of editor effects to spruce up your family photos and videos, without having to break the bank to pay for full copies. One thing to note: Adobe points out that Case Sensitive HFS Volumes (HFSX) are not supported under either of the App Store releases, so keep that in mind.
