Can someone explain the step-by-step for inserting photos into a Premiere Elements 3.0 Project?
I’ve been out of the editing loop for 3+ yrs having worked in the past on a Matrox RT2500/Premiere 6.0 system. Back then, I would first open the picture in Photoshop, change the size (often requiring adding a layered background as a ‘template’ for the correct size), then import into project.
Just curious what the best technique is for this.
Since my old Matrox system has died, I will be using Elements 3.0 and Photoshop 5.0. Need to get a ‘Life Video’ project done for my son in 1 month.
First off, don’t use JPEG. Premiere doesn’t like ANY compressed format, I use targa but any uncompressed format will work.
I don’t know the workings of Premiere Elements but I can import pics just like any video clip with V6.5. Drag and drop to the timeline I would image. I’m sure someone will come along and correct me.
