I think that you might be confusing the Toolbox in Photoshop with the ones in Premiere Elements.
There IS a Toolbox in Titler, but for, say Crop, that is done via an Effect in Premiere Elements.
Can you furnish a link to one of those tutorials?
Which version are you using?
you can select the clip on the timeline, then add crop effect and make changes to it by clicking clip properties icon below the program monitor.
or add crop effect to the clip, go to edit and select "edit effects" which will give you the same clip properties window to make changes to the attributes.
Hi Bill – Thanks so much for your help. I’m in the wrong place to get the URL, but will get it to you yet this morning. I started to look in Effect last night, but just about went blind by then.
When convenient, please do post the URL to the tutorial, as I suspect that it might be either for Photoshop Elements, or perhaps the terms used are a bit confused.

Your suggestion that it is probably a Photo Shop tutorial makes sense. I’m new to this and 78 years old. It isn’t coming easy! I have the Adobe Premier
Elements 9 and Adobe Design CS 5.5 which has Photo Shop. Might I be better off using the Photo Shop program? I’ll start looking at it in anticipation of your reply.

Thanks and Regards,
Hi Vipul – I’m Using version 9. Bill Hunt offered that I might be confusing Premier Elements with Photo Shop. I looked in my Photo Shop in CS 5 and can’t find where I can make a video. Below is the URL for the video that I was watching that got me to looking for the Toolbox.

Thanks for your help I’m going to try to follow your instructions. I should be able to find the way to crop. I’ll let you know
Yes, that Toolbox is in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, and is usually in the upper-left of the program's screen (the default location).
For Video, I feel that the best programs are Premiere (either Pro, or Elements), though Photoshop-Extended has added Video capabilities available. There can be some reasons for working on some aspects of Video in Photoshop, but for general Video editing, it pales compared to either Premiere program.
It is sort of like Premiere handling some aspects of Still Images, but either Photoshop program is by far the better choice there, and for almost ALL Image manipulation operations, nothing will be better, than Photoshop. I constantly use Photoshop (never have had Photoshop Elements) for ALL of my Still Image work, and though I have Photoshop-Extended CS 6, use Premiere (either Elements or Pro) for ALL of my Video work. I also use my Adobe After Effects (AE) program, where needed. Though Premiere Pro can do some of the same things, often AE is the best choice, with more power, control and functions. For me, it is choosing the "right tool for the job."
Now, if you have a Still Image, and wish to Crop it, here are three suggestions:
- Do the Crop (and any Scaling) in Photoshop/Photoshop Elements, then Import that altered Image into PrE.
- Place the Image onto the Timeline in Premiere, and let the Frame Size of the Project effectively "crop" the Image.
- One can also apply the Crop Effect to a Still Image on the Timeline, but I like the other two options better.
If you have Video, then the Crop Effect (to adjust that Effect, with the Clip Selected, go to Effects>Edit Effects, and change the parameters in the Crop Effect, as is required.
In Premiere, many Effects are similar to Tools, Filters and Adjustments, found in Photoshop, but are designed for Video.
Good luck, and hope that makes sense. If not, please just ask for clarification on anything.
