Is it true that Magic Extractor is not available on Photoshop Elements 12? I have 11 at home and convinced my boss to buy 12 at work specifically for this feature. What's going on?

The Magic Extractor was replaced with the modern, non-destructuve "Refine Edge" technology developed in the pro version of Photoshop.
