I’ve come to learn that having photo and video editing experience is invaluable. I’ve learned a lot about photo and video making along the way, but I got a head start as a computer animation minor in college. Adobe was the software we were required to use and learn, and it’s no wonder why- Adobe provides superior products for consumers of all experience levels. After not using photo editing software for a few years, quite a bit had changed, but just like riding a bike, I was able to build on skills I had retained and now I do all my own editing.
While photo editing is a cinch for me, there was a bit of a learning curve when it came to video editing. It wasn’t that I couldn’t grasp the program, it’s more of a “patience” issue I have. I feel like after staring at the screen for a while I need to take a break and come back to my project with fresh eyes, otherwise, I scrutinize every little detail imaginable.
Since my friend is surprising her mom with a new companion dog, she needed help making a montage video for Christmas to share with her mom while they awaited the dog’s arrival. Check out this fun project we made using Adobe Premiere Elements 2020:

There are so many things you can create with Adobe Premiere Elements 2020. My personal favorite is making highlight videos of special events, like Christmas morning, my kid’s plays, vacations, and parties. Premiere Elements makes it easy to create these videos with premium editing options like improving grainy low light clips with the Reduce Noice Effect.
My next project will be a time-lapse project with photos and videos of my 10-year-old. I feel like 10 is a milestone age and I would love to create a video highlighting the past 10 years of memories with her. After I make that time-lapse video, I can easily share it with family on Youtube or Vimeo. (there are other sharing options available as well, but these are the two that I mainly use.
