– Enhancements to search tools that make it quicker and easier to find photos by the people in them, a map of where you took them or photos based what you were doing.
Premiere Elements adds the following new features:
– Guided Edits for isolating one or more colours in a scene while push everything else to black-and-white and creating slow-motion and fast-motion effects;
– Built-in pre-sets for adding animating text and graphics to produce motion titles;
