    How to create a photo slideshow in my movie


      Hello all,


      Im woking on my first movie with Premier Elements 12 and I can not figure out how to include a slideshow of pictures at the end of my movie.


      Of course I can drag the photos on the timeline and use trancients in between but there is nothing I can do with the picture like editting/cut parts off, make them black/white and use movement effects for example.


      Isnt this an option/included in Premiere lements 12 ?

      I just bought the software but also played around with the trial of Cyberlink Powerdirector which has this handy magic function to select all pictures at once and create different/random trancirents and effects and pictures could be editted also.

      This is what Im after but I can not find how to do this stuff in Premiere lements 12.


      Hope someone can help me out.


      Thatnks in advance

          Any video effects that can be added to video can also be added to photos -- and that includes the ability to make the pictures black & white or add other special effects. There is also a tool for adding Pan & Zoom effects over the photos under the Tools button.


          Premiere Elements also includes an InstantMovie feature which can be used to gather a bunch of clips and automatically add titles, music, effects, etc., just like PowerDirector.


          To help ease the transition from PowerDirector, you may want to check out my free 8 part Basic Training tutorials at Premiere Elements support site Muvipix.com.

            Do you have Photoshop Elements 12 as well as Premiere Elements 12?


            What is this "movie" that the photo slideshow is going to be at the end of? A video? If so, what are the

            properties of that video...video and audio compressions, frame size, frame rate, interlaced or progressive, file extension, pixel aspect ratio?


            What is your intended final product...DVD-VIDEO standard or widescreen on DVD disc, AVCHD on DVD disc, or Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc?


            With the above information, I will suggest some approaches that you might want to look into.
