Adobe has announced Photoshop Elements 2021 and Premiere Elements 2021, its latest updates to its beginner photo and video editing software.
Employing Adobe’s Sensei AI technology, both pieces of software build on automation and guided editing tools to help streamline users’ workflows.
New to Adobe Photoshop Elements 2021 include the following features:
Add motion to your static images with Moving Photos: This year we’re introducing the ability to transform your favourite shots into moving photos with just one click. Powered by Adobe Sensei, you can easily create fun, animated GIFs with 2D and 3D camera motion and then impress your family and friends as they marvel at your skills
Fine-tune portrait and group shots with Adjust Face Tilt: Adjust Face Tilt is this year’s addition to this category of edits. This Sensei powered feature helps you ensure that everyone in your photo is looking in the right direction by automatically adjusting the position of a person’s face.
Make precise video selections with Select Object: Select a specific object—or area—of your video and easily apply an effect that tracks throughout the video. This is one feature that will save anyone working with video content a lot of time.
More power with GPU Accelerated Performance: This enhancement will enable you to see high-quality playback of many awesome effects without rendering first. And you’ll be able to crop your videos faster!
Additional music tracks for your videos: We’re also adding 21 brand new music tracks so that you can select your perfect soundtrack and add it to your video creations.
And five new Guided Edits include:
Duotones – Create modern duotones by applying cool, custom effects to your photos for a beautiful two-colour creation. You can choose from custom preset social sizes, add a gradient, and more!
Perfect Landscapes – Powered by Adobe Sensei, this Guided Edit teaches you to easily replace skies, remove haze, and erase unwanted objects to create epic outdoor scenes.
Move, Scale, and Duplicate Objects – It’s now easier than ever to select an object and change its position, size, and more. Follow this step-by-step guide to make your creation look exactly how you want.
This brings the total number of Guided Edits to 83.
Premiere Elements 2021 also adds a new Double Exposure mode that lets you play a video within a photo, and new Animated Matte Overlays let you apply different shapes and animation styles to your videos.
The Photoshop Elements 2021 price tag is £86.56, and the cost is the same for Premiere Elements 2021. You can buy both Elements and Premiere Elements 2021 together for £130.36.
