If you're just trying to create a video slideshow, it's as simple as importing the still photos into a Premiere Elements project and then adding them to your timeline.
Although in my books I always recommend you first reduce the size of your photos to 2000x1500 pixels (72 ppi). Large photos can cause problems with the program and very large photos won't even load into a project. But 2000x1500 pixel photos should load in very easily.
The program also includes a variety of tools for adding pans and zooms around your photos as well as transitions between them, if you're interested.
but my problem is that in the timeline the "video" slideshow doesn't work as video and doesen't support picture in picture with another video.
so if i have in video 1: iphone.mov and in video 2: slideshow the video 2 is always above video 1. I can only change the size of the slide but is pretty orrible.
I am not clear what you are trying to do, piziog.
Are you trying to create a video slideshow? Or are you trying to create a picture-in-picture effect?
i need t owork in the timeline with two video.
1. a clip of myself that i speak about a topic
2. a video of the slideshow. i try to put the slideshow in .jpeg and after upload in premiere in the timeline. The slide in the timeline stay always above the first video. i can only resize the frame of the slide to show the first video.
I hope i'm clear, non only my english but also my premiere skill are less :-(
It sounds like you're on the right track.
You have a video on Video 1 of you talking and then, on Video 2, you're overlaying photos of the things you're talking about. It also sounds like you're trying to do picture-in-picture effects with the photos.
If that's the case, try dragging the photos from Project Assets onto the Monitor window rather than to the timeline. This will add the photos as picture-in-pictures over your main video.
If that's not accomplishing what you're wanting to do, you will have to place and size the photos one at a time.
