Creating Your Own Project
We will begin by opening existing images in Photoshop Elements. We'll learn how to use a variety of tools within PSE to crop, straighten, heal blemishes or scratches, and remove red-eye from our images, before exporting them for use in our video. We'll use Premiere Elements to combine our images with music to create a video slideshow. We'll learn how to change the duration of our clips, how to add a title to our movie, and how to export it in a format that can be shared with others.
