4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the alternatives 5 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase
I had not used Premiere since version 6 and had been using Photoshop 7 until I decided to pick up this bundle. A recent need for a video editor made me look around to see what was available, and having tried a number of products through online trial downloads I can say without reservation that Premiere Elements 9 is the best non-professional editor around, and by some margin.

Generally speaking I've found it to be quite stable and have had no hardware issues what-so-ever. I'm using it on a Phenom II X3 3.2 GhZ with only 2 GB RAM, and an ATI HD5750 graphics card. I have however experienced instability while using the audio editing tools, which at times leads to the program unexpectedly quiting. So get used to saving frequently.

Photoshop Elements 9 seems to be an evolution of previous versions with some new added capabilities. All in all an impressive upgrade from version 7.

I'd recommend this bundle to anyone but I would advise you to download the trial first to make sure that you will not have hardware issues like one of the previous reviewers here.

It's well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars New version 30 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase
The previous versions of these programmes that I had used was Photoshop Elements 5 and Premier Elements 3. But these would not work on my new PC that came with Windows 7, so I was forced to update. I had no problems during the instalation of the programmes and when adding my photos to the Organiser. It is early days but I found that Premier E 9 would not allow me to edit old recordings, so I will try Nero to complete this one project.
No such problem with Photoshop Elements 9, I find the choices that it shows me a great improvement and easier to use when adding photos to emails as it shows the size of your attachment. I am still exploring its other assets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous software 1 Oct. 2010
I've always appreciated Adobe software, and as a Mac user i eagerly anticipated the release of the latest version of Photoshop Elements and, more importantly Premiere Elements. Both are geared towards the enthusiastic home user who doesn't have the cash or inclination to use the full-fat variants. I was finding iMovie and iPhoto too limiting.

Despite the sophisticated feature set, the learning curve on this software is not too steep, which is lucky because the online help is pretty basic.

I've read the other two reviews. Maybe the reviewers have valid arguments. Personally I'm unlikely to use the features they complain about so I'm uninfluenced.

The products are great, power rich, sophisticated but easy to get to grips with.

Oh...and power hungry. Check the min spec out carefully before purchasing.

1.0 out of 5 stars No AVCHD output, no sale 28 Sept. 2010
This is a review of Adobe Premiere Elements 9 only. I couldn't find a link on the page for that product alone and wanted to share my experiences while fresh in my mind. Anyway Photoshop Elements is usually pretty good.

My requirements for video editing software are modest. I just want to run through the 3 step cycle of Import the clips, Basic Edit (throw out the 66% rubbish, add a few titles, perhaps a menu) and Export to DVD efficiently and reliably. I have been doing this for years with Adobe Premiere Elements 3 which is perfect for SD editing.

I have been using HD video for a year and have struggled to find any editor with similar characteristics on HD clips. Premiere Elements 8 has a dreadful reputation so I have been using Pinnacle 12. But it has a poor editing interface and often fails when starting to create a disc. But it can be got to work and it will create the AVCHD disc format that writes 20 or 30 minutes to a DVD blank which will then play on most Blu-Ray players. This allows you to do without a Blu-Ray Burner and expensive Blu-Ray blank discs (well over £1 each).

But I had great hopes that Premiere Elements 9 would have solved 8's problems and take me back to an editing environment I like. So when it was announced, I downloaded the trial version from the Adobe web site. It downloaded and installed without problem and seemed very stable.

I decided the best way to start to test it was to run it through the simplest possible version of the 3 step cycle. This is what happened :-

IMPORT: the software loaded mp4 clips from a Samsung R10 camcorder via a USB cable with only the usual 2 irritations typical of the Adobe import approach i.e.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's awful but I like it! 26 Nov. 2010
By Old Den
Verified Purchase
I finally did take the plunge and bought this bundle. Photoshop Elements installed with no problem but I had great problems with installing Premiere Elements. This was probably partly my fault because I put in Disc 2 before installing both programs (no such warning in the small Getting Started booklets). I then got lots of error messages and had to call on Adobe Help to sort me out. After taking control of my desktop (I have an iMac) and working on it for about half an hour with some co-operation from me, Premiere Elements finally installed. I haven't tried Phot El yet because I had Version 8 and 9 seems similar. I have spent all afternoon getting to know Prem El again after having used it for some years before I converted to a Mac. So the layout and the tools were all fairly familiar to me and I started a Trial project. That's when I was reminded of the pitfalls, such as making sure to choose the correct video format and aspect ratio etc before starting the project (can't be changed later). I have a Panasonic DV (tape) camcorder NV-GS500 set to record in PAL format in widescreen and this was detected by the Get Media capture and the clips on the tape were copied over OK (or so I thought). When I came to do some trial editing I discovered that the video on some (only some) of the clips had been compressed vertically although I had specified 16:9 aspect at the outset. Other clips which had been in the same batch were perfectly OK. Also I found that the choice of dividing clips by Content caused some clips to be joined as one instead of separated. Much safer to choose the divide by time option. I played about with the editing for a while using various features and, like some of the other reviewers, I suffered from occasional crashes for no apparent reason. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Confusing
Lots of choice for editing photos. Menu system can be a bit confusing but the guided editing is useful. Not sure its worth the money for serious editing I prefer The gImp.
