      What features from previous versions are not available in Adobe Photoshop Elements 12?


      A handful of features from previous versions are not available in Photoshop Elements 12 due to new product support for 64-bit systems.

       

      Below, we list the features and the easy alternatives available to you in version 12:

      • The Magic Extractor Tool
        • Alternative: Use the Quick select tool together with the Refine Edge tool to quickly select and extract anything from your photos.
      • Texture Fill
      • Frame from video (imports a frame from video in PremiereElements)
        • Alternative: Use the freeze-frame feature in Premiere Elements to capture a frame in video and save it as a photo
      • Interactive layout mode in Photomerge Panorama
        • Alternative: None
      • Photoshop Showcase
        • Alternative: Try Adobe Revel. Elements 12 will let you view and share your Elements photos and videos across smartphones, tablets, and the web, via Adobe Revel.
      • Enhance>Adjust Color>Color Variations
        • Alternative: None specifically, but you can use Auto Smart Tone
