    How to change presets for Photos 1024 X 768 Premiere 11

    jrodriguez6

      How can I change the presets on Premiere 11 to work with Photos 1024 X 768 or 2592 x 1944 or 3648 x 2736. I want to use Premiere but I take more photos than video.

          What are you going to do with the photos... write a DVD or BluRay, or write a computer file?

            Thanks for the reply John.

            I was planing to make a movie and put it on DVD Wide Screen 16:9. The Pictures are all 4:3. Like I posted. I tried using them before with the presets set to DSLR 720p 1280 x 720 but inputing the pictures there was a lot of dead space all around the Picture. I did a sample and the out put still looked funny because of the empty space on a wide screen.

              Well by definition you're going to have dead space left & right of the image because you are displaying a 4:3 image on a 16:9 screen. You might want to consider cropping the stills to a 16:9 format for a more aesthetically pleasing result.

                For your consideration....

                 

                If you have Premiere Elements 11 in Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit (and depending on overall system resources)....assuming a NTSC setup....

                 

                a. Set the Premiere Elements 11 project preset manually

                File Menu/New/Project

                NTSC

                DSLR

                1080p

                DSLR 1080p30 @ 29.97

                before you close out of that area, make sure that you have a check mark next to "Force Selected Project Setting on This Project".

                 

                b. In the Premiere Elements 11 Expert workspace/ Edit Menu/Preferences/General remove any check mark next to "Default Scale To Frame Size". Import the photos into the project via Add Media/Files and Folders/Project Assets from where you drag the photos to the Timeline.

                 

                c. From the Timeline, scale each (Constrain Proportions checked in Applied Effects Tab/Applied Effects Palette/Motion Panel expanded and its Scale property) so that the images fill the space in the monitor provided by the project preset.

                 

                d. Publish+Share/Disc/DVD disc with preset = NTSC_Widescreen_Dolby DVD.

                 

                What does that look like?

                 

                Further details on the above to come along with any clarification requested.

                 

                Thank you.

                  This works but I have to do it 125 jpgs. It will take tons of time. I have 2 dvds that I have to do.

                  Thanks

                    If not individual photo adjustments...

                     

                    Since you are going from 4:3 images to a 16:9 project, best results with those photos would be expected  by batch cropping/resizing rather than just resizing. Please look at the free IrfanView program for the batch cropping and resizing and see if that works for you.
