Adobe has unveiled its next annual release of Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements. The new software promises faster and easier photo and video editing.
Adobe Photoshop Elements 2023 incorporates even more Adobe Sensei AI-powered features, including more streamlined editing tools and enhanced animation features. Between Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements, there are nearly 90 Guided Edits. These step-by-step interactive lessons teach users how to achieve a specific editing task or look for their photos and videos, ensuring that users of all skill levels can edit their content.
Ease of use and accessibility is a key component of the Elements software. While full-blown professional apps like Lightroom, Photoshop and Premiere Pro offer a wider range of powerful editing tools than the Elements apps, they can also be quite daunting for new users. To make Elements even more accessible, Adobe has added connected experiences with new web and mobile companion apps, allowing on-the-go photo and video access, viewing and sharing. As of now, the connected apps are available via an English-only beta.
‘We believe everyone should be able to create anything they imagine,’ said Ashley Still, senior vice president, digital media marketing, strategy and global partnerships 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.’

Among the new editing features this year, users can add Moving Elements to their still photos using AI. You could use this to make a waterfall move in a photo or make clouds move across the sky in a landscape photo. You can show your photos with new collage and slideshow templates as well. Adobe has added Peek-through Overlays to create the illusion of depth in your still photos. There are new Artistic Effects for video editing, plus more than 100 new audio tracks you can use to add music to your video content. Both apps promise improved performance, including faster installation, faster launch times and a nearly 50% reduction in app size. On M1-powered Macs, the apps launch 70% faster.
