Adobe Premiere Elements 11 is the latest release of the consumer-based video editing program from Adobe. It is a scaled-down version of their professional level package Premiere Pro, without all of the learning curve of its bigger brother, but yet it still provides a lot of power. It can also be purchased as a bundle with both Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements 11 for a significant savings.
Like Photoshop Elements, Premiere Elements is a lot easier to work with and a lot more manageable than Premier Pro and while it has fewer features than pro, the features it does have are more geared toward, and better serve the general consumer and even the low-end prosumer as well.

So what is new with this version of Adobe Premiere Elements 11?
• Manage your videos – more easily in the media Organizer. This completely redesigned Organizer presents information in a much easier and more approachable way. Now you can simply move video clips from your memory card or any other device to your computer using preset preferences. Premiere Elements organizes them by date. With full-screen preview, you can get the full effect of your video clips.
• Map your memories – and relive your journeys. Through the use of the map view, you can zoom in to a particular area of the world and see what videos you took there. In addition to helping you retrace your steps, the mapping feature also assists with remembering exactly where the videos were taken after visiting multiple destinations. The Places view in Premiere Elements integrates with Google maps, enabling you to organize and search videos by location.
• Adjust color – with new sliders give you the ability to adjust video footage color much in the same way you now do with photographs. Color is an important part of any video and now you can adjust it quickly and easily. Instant previews give you a quick look at how these adjustments will change the look of your video so that you can play with the sliders to get the color just right.
