Adobe Photoshop Elements is a raster graphics editor for entry-level photographers, image editors and hobbyists. It hosts some essential metadata manipulation capabilities, including automatic categorizing and face recognition. For small and medium sized archives and limited projects, Adobe Elements might be an option.

User Experiences[edit]

  • Photoshop Elements can write the metadata acquired during arrangement back into images files, probably XMP style. One should be able to use these metadata in ingest processes of other tools. [1]
  • Writing results of face recognition back into image file tags seems to be outside of its capabilities [2]. Adobe Lightroom can do it but is a much costlier option.

Development Activity[edit]
