Adobe Premiere Elements and Adobe Photoshop Elements are an affordable combo for both the Mac and PC that gives you the two software tools you need most when entering the video biz: a graphics / photo editor and a video editing platform. They are sold individually and as a package, and are often heavily discounted around Black Friday. The combo package is the one I typically buy to have around.
One of the best features coming with these updates is the one click object selection. Previously you had to drag the cursor around the object that you were trying to select which as an efficient but time consuming process, and in the world of graphic design and image editing it can be a little too time consuming when you have deadline that you need to meet without fail. One click object selection will be far more convenient and would enable you to more quickly get the results that you are looking for.
