Disappointed with Adobe Premier Elements 2022

I upgraded from the old version 15 after reading the sales pitch for Adobe Photoshop and Elements 2022. What a disappointing experience.

 

First I hate when programs install JUNK that I have no use for and then I am not able to delete or disable it. I have no need for Adobe Creative Cloud.

 

I find that my obsolete Camtasia Studio Version 7 more user friendly that Adobe. It easier to insert transitions and manage the video segments - easy two step to delete a segment of video. Futhermore, I created a mp4 file with Adobe and then opened it with Camtasia. To my surprise the file that I then saved from Camtasia was more than half the size of the Adove original. And I did nothing to reduce the file size. Why is that?

 

Adobe creates a slew of folder that are left behind clutering my computer. WHY? If you need scratch pad space, use the TEMP folder that is available in all computrers. And once you finish, delete the folders. Its called "simple house keeping". I see it as sloppy programming code.

I manually deleted these folders after I finished my session.

 

The Adobe Photoshop bundled with purchase does not impress me either. I find no big difference from my old version 15. I'm glad I kept my version 15. Only wish I could get my money back.

Your simple house keeping also deletes the auto save folder which are not temp files but back up files of your project.

On opening your project, all folders are generated again.

They are part of the project.

 

If bought from Adobe you can get your money back within 30 days of purchase.
