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 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.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars No AVCHD output, no sale 28 Sep 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars PE 9 - Nice kIt! 21 Dec 2010
By Roy
Verified Purchase
I previously owned Photoshop Elements 7 and had put off updating until Vers.9 came out. Some good new features on 9 and the same basic ingredients that in my opinion make this the best value for money editing software going today.
I also purchased Premier Elements 9 as a bundle but due my lack of video editing experience I am still on a learning curve with this package - so far it has possibilities but I find it rather complex and can be heavy on memory use.

1.0 out of 5 stars Adobe Premiere Elements 9 1 Oct 2010
I have recently upgraded from Adobe Premiere Elements 8 (along with Photoshop Elements 8) to Adobe Premiere Elements 9. I have used Premiere Elements since version 4 and I guess that I have struggled with the stability issue of these programmes ( particularly versions 7 and 8) and have overcome them somehow. My machine currently uses Windows 7 as the Operating System (32-bit), has a Intel Pentium D CPU 3.00GHz and 4.00 GB RAM (3.5 GB usable).

In the low price range, Adobe Premiere Elements is in my experience the best editing programme around for Standard and High Definition when it works.

The fact is that even with various tricks to reduce the memory bleed within Premiere Elements 9, I have found it unusable, giving me perhaps 5 - 10 mins before it crashes. Sometimes I could not get started at all.

In addition Adobe do not seem to have bothered to correct some well-known faults that were inherent in Premiere Elements 8 such as in BluRay burning, at the end of a video, the disc drops out rather than return to the main menu (works fine in DVD mode). I had hoped that this might have been put right in 9, but this is not the case.

The addition of useful editing facilities for sound in 9 is a good reason for buying it, but not good enough, and my recommendation would be not to waste your money on Premiere Elements 9 and stick to 8, which is what I have had to revert to. I await some sort of fix from Adobe for the problems associated with Premiere Elements 9 which is still installed on my machine alongside 8, but now unused. If I need sound editing, I have other programmes which can do this for me just as well.

Fortunately, unlike between 8 and 7, if you have loaded a project in 9, it is still possible to load it and edit in 8.

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.

Haven't found it that wasy to use, even to organise my photos yet, printing is tricky too dependant on managing the printer driver. Looks very comprehensive though.
