“We believe everyone should be able to create anything they imagine,” said Ashley Still, SVP at Adobe. “With Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements, anyone can bring their creative visions to life in new ways with AI-powered editing, hands-on learning content and the flexibility to enjoy their creative content from any location.”
A highlight of the updated Photoshop Elements is the ability to add Moving Elements to photos – waterfalls, clouds and backgrounds in still images can be made to move. The image is then saved in MP4 or GIF.
Premiere Elements now includes Artistic Effects. Users can transform entire video clips into a popular art style.
Adobe added new backgrounds, patterns and skies for images and 100 new audio tracks for videos. There are also new collage and slideshow templates.
The company promises better performance: up to 35% faster installation, 50% faster launch times, a 48% reduction in app size and up to 70% faster launch times on Apple M1-powered Macs.
Adobe also introduced web and mobile companion apps (English-only beta) for on-the-go photo and video access, viewing and sharing.
