In this course you'll learn how to use Adobe Premiere Elements to create, edit, customize, and share movies. The contents of this course include:
Introducing Adobe Premiere Elements 10
This chapter introduces all of the tools you will be working with to create complete movies from your tapes, video files, photos, and music.
Getting to Know the Workspace
The first step in understanding any new software is building familiarity. This lesson introduces the main panels, menus, and buttons of Premiere Elements so you can find your way around.
From Start to Finish
Making movies is a journey from recording your original videos through the process of selecting the best bits, putting them together in the right order, adding some special effects, and showing it to people. This chapter gives you an overview of the complete lifecycle of a movie.
Capturing Tapes and Importing Media Files
The first step in using Premiere Elements is giving it some media to work with. This chapter shows you how to get the videos you have recorded from your camera to your computer and how to import other kinds of files into Premiere Pro.
Creating a New Project and Understanding the Options
The settings you choose for your project, such as the number of frames per second and the size of the image, are pretty important. Premiere Elements conforms all your video clips, photos, titles, graphics, and sound to match the settings you choose. This chapter explains the options available.
Arranging Clips to Make a Movie
It might seem crazy, but the more organized you are, the more fun you will have making your movie. This chapter shows you how to use the Elements Organizer to bring order to the chaos of making movies and introduces some core skills for building your first cut.
Making Changes to Your Edit
Once you have built your movie and watched it through, it’s very likely you will want to make some changes to bring it to perfection. This chapter is all about tweaking and tuning your movie.
Adding Transitions and Special Effects
Once you get the timing of your cuts right, you have lots of options for adding transitions and special effects. This chapter looks at some of the magical things you can do.
Adding Titles and Using Graphics
Once you have created the perfect cut, you’ll want to add some titles, graphics, and/or photos. These usually appear in front of your video to give information or perhaps just extra color. This chapter shows you how to add layering and “sparkle” to your movie.
Most of the time you’ll be happy using the default preferences for everything, but there are some useful options you may want to know about for future reference. This chapter shows you the important preferences that can change the way you create movies with Premiere Elements.
Working with Music and Audio
Music can make all the difference in creating a compelling movie. This chapter shows you how to bring life and drama to your video work.
Previewing and Sharing Your Movie
When your movie is complete, all that remains is to share it with the world. This chapter shows you the various ways you can get your masterpiece out of your computer and into the limelight.
The lessons are wrapped in a feature-rich interface that lets you jump to any topic and bookmark individual sections for later review. Full-Screen mode provides a hi-def, immersive experience, and Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window so you can play the videos alongside your application. Also included are exercise files that give you an easy way to try out the techniques you learn and a 48-page guide containing supplemental material.
It's easy to watch this course from your Android device, iPad, or iPhone (4 or later). Access videos straight from your browser, or, for Android devices or iPads, use this course in one of our free apps.

Available in the downloadable version of our courses, this feature makes it easy to create a custom bookmark in any lesson to mark where you left off or to make note of something you want to refer back to later. You can even add a name or short note to remind yourself what the bookmark is for.
