Adobe has released new versions of Photoshop Elements 2022 and Premiere Elements 2022, an affordable photo and video editor software designed for casual users who want to enhance their photos and videos with simple editing tools.
For Photoshop Elements 2022, Adobe is introducing Adobe Sensei AI technology, a feature that turns photography into a work of art. With a one-click filter, users can apply effects inspired by famous art or popular art styles to their photos and then adjust the result.
Adobe adds moving overlays like snowflakes or sparkles that you can add to your photos, along with animated frames. They can be saved in MP4 format and published as videos on social networks.
With the warp tool, photos can be automatically warped to fit inside or around an object. For example, A photo can be wrapped around a cup of coffee in an image, or framed by sunglasses for fun dual photo opportunities.
Guided Edits, a feature that introduces users to the various changes that can be made to their photos, is updated annually. In the 2022 update, Adobe is adding guided edits to enhance pet photos and expand the background image of photos.
Other features in Adobe Elements 2022 include animated slideshow templates, automatic software updates, a redesigned design for easier navigation, and support for GIF playback in the organizer.
For Premiere Elements 2022, Adobe has added a new feature that resizes videos for social media while keeping the most important video elements front and center. Adobe claims it’s perfect for motion clips such as a children’s birthday party or a sports event. Animated titles, underlays, and backgrounds for non-horizontal videos are also available.
Premiere Elements 2022 includes new guided edits features for adding animated overlays such as fluttering butterflies and adjusting shadows and highlights in videos.
Like Photoshop Elements 2022, Premiere Elements 2022 has a redesigned look, automatic software updates, new animated slideshow templates, and GIF playback in Organizer, and it’s easier to reduce file size with a slider that adds compression.
