Adobe PhotoDeluxe Home Edition is an application that enables users to edit their image files. This application contains various features used to enhance the quality of images, perform basic editing tasks, and add effects to the user’s digital images. Adobe PhotoDeluxe Home Edition was marketed by Adobe Systems as its main image-editing software until July 2002 when it released Adobe Photoshop as its flagship image-editing program. Adobe PhotoDeluxe Home Edition’s main feature is its ease of use. Compared to Adobe Photoshop, Adobe PhotoDeluxe Home Edition can be used by beginners who have no background in image editing software. This application contains image-editing tools such as remove red eye, adjust brightness, sharpness, and contrast, crop, and adjust color saturation. In addition to these, Adobe PhotoDeluxe Home Edition can be used to prepare images for printing. Users may use the application to resize photos to fit their printing paper, extract photos from a scanner, and print multiple photos of different sizes in a single page.
Adobe PhotoDeluxe Home Edition features a stylized user interface that has three main parts. The first part contains the image editing tools and basic controls such as open photo, rotate and size, adjust quality, repair photo, add special effect, save and load, and print. The next section is the image workspace where the edited photos displayed. The last part displays the thumbnails of photos to be edited using Adobe PhotoDeluxe Home Edition.
