          Select all clips on timeline and drag a transition between any two of the selected clips.

              What version of Premiere Elements do you have and on what computer operating system is it running?

               

              In the absence of that information, I will give you the generalized how to for

               

              How do I put transitions on all the pictures in a group at once?

               

              Select all the photos in the group, go to Timeline Menu/Apply Default Transition. In doing that you applying the same transition for each.  In Premiere Elements, there is no random assortment of transitions that you can apply all at one time to the Timeline content.

               

              Since the command you will be using is Apply Default Transition, then we might have to get into how to set the Default Transition if you do not know have to do that. Also, are you OK with how to select more than one photo at a time? If so, I will include that in the next post as well.

               

              I have NEVER in any version of Premiere Elements seen what SG has told you

              Select all clips on timeline and drag a transition between any two of the selected clips.

               

              Perhaps he could elaborate more on that. Until further word from him, I do not believe what he wrote is

              possible for what you said you want to do.

               

              Please review, consider, and let us know the outcome.

               

              Thank you.

                Thanks for your help. I have Adobe Premier 12 and Windows 7...and I'm brand new at putting still picture and videos together for a DVD. I need help in figuring out how to select a group of still pictures.

                  You can select a group of clips (all at one time)

                   

                  a. With the mouse cursor draw a rectangle around the clips to select/highlight them.

                  Please see white rectange drawn with mouse cursor selecting 2 of 3 jpegs (can be more, this is just a quick demo)

                   

                  Selection.jpg

                   

                  b. Hold down on the Shift key of the computer main keyboard as you click each of the photos that you want selected/highlighted all at one time.

                   

                  c. There is always Edit Menu/Select All, but that will do just that, and you probably want a select group and not all.

                   

                  Please let us know if you are OK with the above information. If not, please let me know me how it is not working for you.

                  Thank you.

                        Once you post the version of Premiere Elements that you are working with, we will be able to point you to resources specific to that version.

                         

                        The principles tend to remain the same from version to version. But, features and feature locations tend to move, be changed, or discontinued from version to version. It is very frustrating to be armed with principles when you cannot find a feature.

                         

                        If you are using Premiere Elements 11 and 12 and are focusing on transitions, the following information on Audio Transition Problem may be of interest.

                        Other Premiere Elements topics can be found at that site.

                         

                        Looking forward to learning of your progress.

                         

                        Thanks.
