Nowadays, a lot of footage is either in 4k or with a high framerate. I personally like to have more than enough space onboard before I consider external options and I would recommend to packing as much storage as possible given you can afford it.
That being said, there are two types of internal hard drives on the market. Solid-state drives are a fast but an expensive solution for storage. These drives are coming down in price and they will eventually achieve parity with mechanical drives, but for now, they are a harder to get due to their price.
IPS — in-plane switching is a technology that adds a lot of clarity to a modern monitor. It has more vivid colors, a better contrast, and excellent viewing angles.
IPS displays are a must for any video editor. Anti-Glare — This is an option that you should consider if you find yourself working with a lot of ambient light. Anti-glare coatings will reduce the glare but in some cases they can be less bright than glossy displays. Best Laptops for Adobe Premiere.
New Features in Premiere Elements Elements has auto-tagged photos for a while now, but with the release of Premiere, videos can now also be auto-tagged, including using facial recognition to tag individuals. There are also three new Guided Edits: An automatic time-lapse video creation tool, a sky animation tool, and a tool to fill in the background areas that are normally black when you rotate a video between portrait and landscape.
A new Object Removal Guided Edit allows you to select what you want to remove using a brush, or automatically in several different ways. If the object is in front of an otherwise consistent background, Elements then uses some AI magic to paint an appropriate replacement for the deleted object.
Here is an example image that shows how powerful the tool is and its limitations. I loved the site, but had a hard time getting a shot without a lot of tourists in it: The first, and most important, step in the Object Removal Guided Edit is selecting the area of the image you want removed.
I used the Quick Selection tool to pick out a few of the tourists I found most distracting. I created selections in both of the lower corners. Here is a screenshot of the selection I made in the lower left: Quick selection of tourists to remove from the original image Once you are satisfied with your selection, you tell Elements to replace it with an in-painted region based on other portions of the image.
You can further tune the results with a Healing Brush or Clone Stamp. In my case, I just let Elements do the work. Of course, corners are the hardest for it, as there is only background on two sides to work with: Elements provides a pretty sweet tool for doing just that.
Once you find it it is under the Enhance menu, not a Guided Edit you simply invoke it and then choose from one of the looks it comes up with. First I used a couple of Guided Edits to clean up the dust and scratches, fix the tones a bit, and sharpen the image. Then I used colorize. One of the looks resembles what an old color photo might have faded to, one is quite saturated like a slide, one is very subtle, and the one I chose seemed the closest to reality.
Here is the original image: Scan of black and white snapshot from the s. And here is the final result: The same image retouched in Photoshop Elements and cropped slightly. The difference in color between the foreground and background grass seems extreme, but looking at the original, the lighting is so different that it might well have looked this way if the image had originally been shot in color.
With a little more work I could certainly have done more to clean up some of the grain and made the sky more attractive, but this keeps the flavor of the original image while giving it some new life. If you need video editing, then the price benefits are substantial compared with a Premiere Pro or full Creative Cloud subscription.
