Is I wonderful photo editing and is cost effective
2 August 2014
Summary: I purchase Premiere Elements, because I wanted a basic photoshop program and I needed to be able to put text on photos something I could not do with iphoto. I originally was using PhotoShop. Once my computer crashed I was never able to recover it, so This is working for now and the price was perfect. I liked the price point and is very easy to use, my only dislike was it was tricky to installed due to security issues.
Excerpt: Use for presentations, integrating stills and videos. I have found that video mpgs it generates do not play well with Powerpoint. Audio does not port between the two. And there is other weirdness that happens.I will use it but in a more limited fashion, only for those presentations that do not require interaction by the presenter.
Excerpt: I got Photoshop Elements 11 as a reaction to Adobe's short sighted move to this creative cloud. I wanted to see if I could use it in the future instead of Photoshop. First off, PSE won't do HDR. It can do a sort of HDR toning, but it works in 8 bit, not 16 bit. THERE ARE WORK AROUNDS. Photomatrix Pro is a darn good HDR product you can use with Lightroom. Now, lets cross our fingers Adobe doesn't cloud-up Lightroom.
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Navigate, Fast, Great Value
Excerpt: This version is great to use compared to PE 8. I mainly use it for events, family events and vacations. Synching multicamera tracks was difficult with PE 8. With PE 11 the audio wave form is very easy to see and allows synching cameras readily.
Pros: Accurate Colors and Controls, Easy To Collaborate Across Programs, Easy To Customize, Easy To Navigate, Highly Visible Audio Wave, No Crashes As With Pe 8, Renders Immediatley, Versatile
Summary: I've been using Elements for years to edit photographs. Though I now use Lightroom to organize photos and to do initial edits, I still use Elements for its layers and masks capabilities, and certain other tasks. Fortunately, one can easily pop into Elements from Lightroom, and then back again.
