Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 Comes to Mac App Store

Adobe has dished out the Photoshop Elements 9 photo editing software on Apple’s Mac App Store.

The company said that the software ‘compliments’ Apple’s iPhoto app by offering additional photo editing tools.

Photoshop Elements 9 is available on the app store without the Adobe Elements Organizer therefore it is priced lower than the version available on its website. The Mac App Store version is available for $79.99 while the boxed version can be purchased for $99.

This is the first ever software offered by Adobe on Apple’s relatively new Mac App Store. It offers a wide range of easy-to-use but advanced photo editing tools like Group Shot, Panorama and Style Match Photomerge.

Adobe, which has had a fall out with Apple over Flash, recently launched the iOS versions of some of its most popular software on Apple’s iTunes App Store for iOS devices. The company offers Photoshop Express, Eazel, Color, Lava and Nav apps for the iPad.

Adobe has been coming up with ways to increase its presence on Apple devices since Apple CEO Steve Jobs banned Flash from iOS devices, claiming that it was too buggy.

According to Apple Insider (opens in new tab), Adobe recently launched a campaign to offer unsatisfied Apple Final Cut Pro X users heavy discounts for moving to its own Premiere Pro.
