Adobe Premiere Elements 12 12.0 (20130921.m


When you start Premiere Elements 12 you will realize that there are two major tools in one program and the first thing that you will see is a small window that offers you a choice between these two tools. You can select the Organizer, which will find and organize your photos or the Video Editor that will create and edit videos, add special effects to them and more. Each tool has a different interface that serves its purpose in the best way possible. Thus the interface of the Organizer prompts you to add your pics and photos to the program while the Video Editor lets you do the same. We have to admit, though, that both interfaces do not feel and look that professional as the fully-featured Premiere Pro version but they still offer a ton of features and functions – it's just that they are not that cluttered.

Basic Operations

It is perhaps unnecessary to say that in order to work with Premiere Elements 12 you must have pictures and videos. As to the picture organizer just select the pics or drop them there and add various effects to them including the location where the photo was taken. The same is valid for the video editing version of the program. There's a downside here, though – no matter what you do with the video you always get a watermark on it showing it was created with the trial version of Premiere Elements 12. In addition once you switch to another active Windows program the video playback stops. Be aware that the program is somewhat prone to crashing so save often!


It's hard to rate Adobe Premiere Elements 12. It depends on whether you really need such a program and what your needs are. If you need a really professional tool then you may have to look at Adobe Premiere Pro. If you need a simpler tool then this one might do the job for you, not to mention it is cheaper. Adobe Premiere Elements 12 is not a bad program, apart from the occasional crashing, it just may not be useful to you. So weigh your needs and decide but if you need such a tool then go for it – you will likely be not disappointed as after all it comes from Adobe.
