Adobe today debuted new versions of Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements, the company's affordable photo and video editing software aimed at casual users who want to enhance their photos and videos with easy to use editing tools.

There are new AI-powered features that are available across both Premiere and Photoshop. A new Moving Elements option, for example, is designed to let users add a moving element into a still photo in Photoshop Elements that can be saved as an MP4 or a GIF.

Peek-through Overlays have been added to create a depth illusion by framing the subject with vignettes of flowers, leaves, grass, and more, and there are new backgrounds, patterns, and skies that can be inserted into photos.

Guided edits, which walk users through different photo effects, can be searched using keyword tags, and there are new collage and slideshow templates for both Photoshop and Premiere Elements.

Premiere Elements includes a new Artistic effects feature that allows video clips to be transformed with styles that are inspired by famous works of art, plus there are more than 100 new audio tracks.

Adobe says that performance and stability improvements allow for a 35 percent faster installation, and 50 percent faster launch times. With full Apple silicon support for M1 Macs, the apps are able to launch up to 70 percent faster. App sizes have also been reduced by 48 percent.

Finally, Adobe is testing a new Photoshop and Premiere Elements web companion app, which is available in a beta capacity. The app allows content created in Photoshop and Premiere Elements to be accessed from anywhere, with options to create slideshows and collages. There's also an Android app, but Adobe has made no mention of an iOS app.

For more on the new features in Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements, make sure to check out Adobe's website. The updates are available for purchase from Adobe for $99 each starting today, with bundle and upgrade pricing available.

This becomes a subscription every year as “mysteriously” the software stops working with every new fall’s OS or slows down after a month or so after release, along with automatic updating (can’t turn it off).

Plus..all of the background running product pirating protections and cloud syncs that cannot be uninstalled (it says it can, but you keep getting a message to reinstall the program if you delete it).

I really like this minimal photoshop app and have been using it for over ten years. I may go with alternatives going forward as I am tired of subscriptions and too much background and cloud sync activity and always having to be “log-in” to Adobe to use it.

One time buy of Affinity products can replace it and you don’t have to continually purchase every year. May say goodbye to Adobe for good this year..

ADVICE: Don‘t give Wall Street run, greedy, Adobe a dime… find other products to do the same thing their software does… Start with looking at the Affinity products: < https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/ >
