I am thinking of upgrading to the Photoshop and Premier Elements 2020 bundle. How many themes are availble to create slideshows and can more be downloaded?
Can you please let us know which application you'll be using to create slideshows(PRE/EO) and from what version are you upgrading to 2020?
I was planning to use Photoshop Elements 2020. I currently have both Photoshop Elements 2013 and Premier Elements 2013
There are five themes in PSE 2020 including “Classic” but you can add your own music in the form of mp3 files. This is all automatic and you can export the results as an mp4 file to upload to YouTube, social media or view on your own computer.
You can drag and drop photos & video clips on to the timeline in PRE 2020 and then choose from a larger variety of transitions and effects. This means you can customize your slideshow but id does involve more manual work.
Why not download the applications and try them free for 30 days.
Thanks! I have only downloaded PSE 2020 so far and I havent yet downloaded a trial of PE 2020. From what I have seen the themes and customisation is fairly limited but that may because I am used to a very extensive set of themes and transitions available in a dedicated slideshow maker like Photodex Proshow Gold which Ive been using for years and really happpy with . Unfortunately Photodex have closed so I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and upgrade my 2 Adobe products to the 2020 version and hope they would also enable me to continue to create great slideshows! I will look at what PE 2020 can do but I suspect from what you say there will be a lot more manual effort to get something similar to what I have been used to!
Looked at Photopia But I really object to subscription based services. I want to pay once for the full version. I only use the software rarely so paying a monthly subscription is ridiculous
I understand but it suggests subscriptions can be paused during periods when the software is not being used.
Many thanks will give that a go!
Have bought Ashampoo Slideshow Creator. Only £8.33 and does what I need particularly with regard to generating random transitions between slides! Excellent. Only surprised that, given the no. of years Photoshop Elemememts has been avaialble it doesnt havde this feature. With slideshows of 60 or so photos I really dont want to have to select every single transition to change it from the default. Many thanks for the suggestion
