Premiere Elements 13 – First Look at Adobe Premiere Elements

Share this article

In last week’s post, we had a little talk about GoPro Studio and just one of its limitations. For editing family videos and home movies, you will probably want a piece of software that is a little more robust, without going full pro. Take a look at Adobe Premiere Elements 13 with me, as I figure it out for the first time!

First impression: I like it a lot. It’s sort of two editing programs in one because there is “Quick” edit mode (which is not that much different than something like GoPro Studio or Windows Movie Maker) and there is “Expert” mode which is more advanced.

I downloaded Premiere Elements for $70, and the full price is stated at $99–but it seems like it’s always on sale.

If you’re thinking about upgrading from GoPro Studio, Windows Movie Maker, or iMovie, walk through Premiere Elements with me and see if you think it’s for you.
