          Are you in PSE Organizer?  If so then select any jpg file and then do this:

           

          File >> Export as new files

           

          The file dialog window opens and just follow the online screen instructions.

           

          If you are in Editor then all you need to do is to open any file and then:

           

          File >> Save as

           

          Select the file type and follow the online screen instructions.  The Export function in Editor is not functioning because Save as is used by most experts.  I am not a PSE expert so rule me out from this.

           

          You can read this dummies article:

          Good luck.

            Do you mean Premiere Elements, the video editing program? If so Export is used only for the export of Titles. for all other activities, such as saving video files, you use Publish+Share.

             

            If you do mean Photoshop Elements, the image editing program, Export is not used by Adobe - it is there for third party plug-in manufacturers to 'hook' into if they want.

              Yes, it is Premiere Elements.... sorry I didn't clarify. It is kind of a

              bummer after editing a video that the file cannot be converted from a .prel

              to a .mov file to view in other applications other than Elements.  Is there

              some sort of work around to do so?

              Thanks for your response.

              Peace

                Good stuff, thanks. It is Premiere Elements video editing that I was

                inquiring about. Sorry I didn't specify.

                Peace.

                  All of what you are thinking of as 'export' functions are in Publish+Share> Computer.

                      Video Hound,

                       

                      The .PREL is the Project file. It is just an XML database with instructions and links to the Imported media Assets - nothing more.

                       

                      As Neale points out, in PrE 11, one would "export" via the Publish+Share, to create an AV file from the Timeline. No conversion is needed, as that is what PrE does - takes that .PREL file, and creates an AV file per its instructions, through the links to the media Assets. Just follow Neale's instructions.

                       

                      When you do a Save (or Save_As, etc.), it is ONLY the .PREL file, which is Saved. When you do the Publish+Share, you are "saving" that Timeline, as a discrete AV file, with the specs. of your choice. For more info on the Project file (PREL), see this Tips & Tricks article: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3392837#3392837

                       

                      Good luck, and if you need any clarification, or have additional questions (now that you are in the right forum), just ask.

                              video hound

                               

                              Did you have an earlier version of Premiere Elements, like Premiere Elements 7 where there was an export route via File Menu/Export/Movie as well as an export route Share/Personal Computer/ with many choices under that such as MPEG, AVI, Windows Media, QuickTime and others? If so, the Premiere Elements workspaces have changed a lot since then. But the principles remain the same. Just need to find where Adobe put the features as the versions moved on.

                               

                              Have you said what Windows operating system your Premiere Elements 11 is running on?

                              Lots of basic details of setting up the project, editing your imports, and editing choices are needed to assure that you get a high quality end product.

                               

                              So information on what you want to edit and how you want it viewed after export are important.

                               

                              Hoping to contribute to your thread.

                                ATR, I am running win 8. I started with Elements 11 no previous versions. I

                                see and know how to "share" (facebook, youtube, etc.) as a link. But after

                                editing some of my videos I need to send the clips to a TV studio for a

                                show they are doing for us (prisongreyhounds.org) but they couldn't edit

                                the .prel file that I sent. So I was looking for an avenue to get them a

                                file that they could edit for the show. And certainly I want it to be the

                                highest quailty when I get it to them.  Hope this makes sense.

                                Peace

                                  Please see

                                  Publish+Share

                                  Computer

                                  AVCHD

                                  with Presets = MP4 - H.264 1920 x 1080p30

                                   

                                  set the Save In: to the hard drive save location of choice and hit the Save button in that export area.

                                   

                                  But all that assumes that you have set the project up correctly for a 1920 x 1080 source.

                                   

                                  1. You or the program set the project preset (project settings) to match the properties of what you are putting on the Expert workspace Timeline. That action will direct the program to set up the right space in the Edit Mode monitor for editing purposes (no black borders et al).

                                   

                                  2. After editing, then Publish+Share/Computer/ where you make sure decisions of export choices.

                                   

                                  If you let us know your project settings and source media properties, we will fine tune the details for import as well as export settings.

                                   

                                  Thanks.
