<p>Adobe Systems today announced two new products for digital photo and video hobbyists.

<p>Photoshop Elements 3.0 adds new ways to organise photos and share photos, to the award-winning photo editing functionality that has long been a hallmark of the product. Customers can now share photos with friends and family that include framed photos within an e-mail; dynamic slideshows that include music and special effect transitions; and access to high quality photo prints via easy-to-use online print services. Photoshop Elements 3.0 also adds new editing solutions, including one-click fixes that quickly enhance photos, as well as more sophisticated editing tools that allow people to remove imperfections, transform photos with effects and filters and correct colour and lighting (see separate release for details).</p>
