[UPDATE – Also see our new Spring Creative Cloud 2021 Giveaway!]
September’s here! Labor Day, back to school, fall begins… September also usually means the next release of Photoshop Elements – now version 10 – should be coming out soon…
Now, we can’t say yet what new features will be in PSE 10, but – true to form – we can start giving it away…
So as soon as it’s available, we’ll be shipping out five shiny new boxes for free – and one could easily be yours through the three ways to enter below.
Photoshop Elements is already the #1-selling consumer photo-editing software* out there, and this 10th edition is likely to inherit even more functionality from its big brother, Photoshop CS5 – which itself is slated to get a major upgrade to Photoshop CS6 next year.
If Adobe follows the same model of Elements 9, then PSE 10 would be available on both Windows and Mac (multi-platform) with the same capabilities – and work alongside any older release(s) of Elements you may have, with the ability to automatically import and convert your existing catalog.
This new giveaway is open to residents of North America, Europe, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa – and all you need to do for a chance to win is the following three steps:
- Follow us on Twitter and/or Like our new Facebook page – this will allow us to contact you if you win… (move to the next step if you already do)
- Retweet this post by clicking on the green “retweet” button just above, and/or Share this post on Facebook by clicking the blue “Share” button next to that.
There’s a third way to enter too – just leave your email for our free occasional Adobe Special Offers newsletter in the sidebar to the right… and you’ll add another chance, plus receive future notification of new Adobe deals and coupon codes (once in a while, never spam).
Each of these actions counts as a single entry into the sweepstakes – so if you do all three, you’ll receive a total of 3 chances to win one of 5 copies of Photoshop Elements 10. Please, one entry per reader for each method, but feel free to tell your friends and colleagues who’d like to win as well.
Submissions are open until 11:59pm EDT on Friday, September 30th, 2011. The prizewinners will be drawn at random from all Facebook fans and Twitter followers who have shared or retweeted this post, plus new newsletter subscribers – and we’ll announce this lucky recipients right here within one week from the closing date.
If you’re the one, we’ll ship you the shiny new shrinkwrapped Photoshop Elements 10 for free! The box will be the full, upgrade, or education version of PSE 10 as appropriate. (Or if you’ve already purchased your copy by that time, just send us the receipt and we’ll reimburse 100% of your cost via PayPal.) We’ll contact you via Twitter or Facebook or email simply to get your address for shipping, and then announce here with just your first name and hometown. That’s all there is to it!

Or, let us – or Adobe – know what you hope will be in Photoshop Elements 10, and how you would use it… What new features are you looking for or wishing to see? More content-aware fill, addition of puppet warp, 16-bit picture workflow, native 64-bit support, more effects, more artwork/templates, more sharing options, performance or interface improvements, or others? Of course, we’ll have the full scoop on PSE 10 right here the moment it’s out…
