Today, Adobe announced the release of Photoshop Elements 2022 and Premiere Elements 2022. This year’s releases offer new Adobe Sensei AI-powered features to take your photos and videos to the next level.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 2022

New features and benefits

Now you can instantly turn photos into art In one click, transform your photos with effects inspired by famous works of art or popular art styles. Choose from amazing artistic effects that you can apply to all or part of your photo, and easily adjust the results for exactly the look you want. Powered by Adobe Sensei.

Create not-so-still photos easily by adding moving overlays like snowflakes and sparkles, and create fun animated frames. Then save your photos as MP4s to share on social and more. And save moving photos and quote graphics as MP4’s as well. I recently photographed my friend’s daughter with a few bubbles.

In Adobe Photoshop Elements 2022 I was able to add in the animation of more bubbles for a bit of fun.

You are now able to warp photos to fit any shape. Place one photo inside another by wrapping it around an object like a coffee mug or fitting it inside shapes like the lenses of your subject’s sunglasses. There’s no limit to what you can create!
