What's new in Photoshop Elements 14
Ensure that your blurry photos appear shake-free with the new Auto Shake Reduction feature (Expert mode > Enhance menu > Auto Shake Reduction) in Photoshop Elements 14. Fix selfies, pictures shot while you were on the move, and more, and ensure that each element of your photo is sharply in focus.
Need additional shake reduction improvements on the photo? Go manual (Expert mode > Enhance menu > Shake Reduction)! Select more areas on the photo to correct, and adjust the sensitivity slider to get the best picture possible.
For more information, see the section on Shake Reduction.
Clearer backgrounds in your landscape pictures!
Cut through the haze and fog in your pictures with the Haze Removal feature in Photoshop Elements 14. Take landscape pictures without having to worry about the haze on even a clear day - just select the photo and process it with the Auto Haze Removal feature (Expert mode > Enhance menu > Auto Haze Removal).
For additional enhancements, including varying levels of sensitivity to haze, try it manually (Expert mode > Enhance menu > Haze Removal).
For more information on the feature, see the topic Automatically remove haze.
Auto smart looks
Five new suggestions for an even cooler-looking picture!
Let Photoshop Elements analyze your photograph and automatically suggest five awesome new effects that can be applied. Photoshop Elements inspects the color and lighting and then recommends five variations.
For more information on the feature, see the topic on Effects.
In Quick mode, straighten any photo by drawing a line along an edge that should be horizontal or vertical. The Straighten tool (P) in Photoshop Elements 14 enables you to quickly align photos along the right axis.
For more information, see the topic on Straightening images.
Refine selection brush
Need to make an ultra-fine selection? The existing tools in Photoshop Elements help make fine selections, but some situations require further precise and accurate selections. For example, you might be trying to select fine strands of hair in a portrait or grass in landscaped scenery.
The enhanced Refine Selection Brush tool now has additional controls to enable you to make very fine selections. With options to vary the sensitivity of the brush, you can make extremely detailed selections.
For more information on how to make extremely minute selections, see the topic Editing and refining selections.
Visually re-imagined for you!
Selecting which Guided edit to use is now easier with the new interface.

Each category of Guided mode is now available on a separate page:
Zoom in or out in style!
Does your photo capture just one moment of an action sequence? Now add a sense of motion to your photograph with the Speed Effect Guided Edit.
