Photoshop Elements 2021 includes a new one-click GIF option for sharing animated images on social media. Fine-tune face tilt will automatically adjust the position of a subject’s face. Adobe has also designed templates for adding quote graphics to your images.

58 new Guided Edits offer step-by-step instructions for creating the look you want:

Create modern duotones
Apply cool, custom duotone effects to your photos for a beautiful two-color creation. Choose from custom preset social sizes, add a gradient, and more!

Perfect your landscapes
Easily replace skies, remove haze, and erase unwanted objects to create epic outdoor scenes. You’re sure to create the perfect adventure photo every time.

Move, scale, and duplicate objects
With step-by-step help, it’s easier than ever to select an object and change its position, size, and more—meaning you can make your creation look exactly how you want.

Premiere Elements 2021 is making effects more powerful with precise object and area selection within a video. Many effects can now play without rendering first thanks to GPU acceleration. Adobe has added 21 new music tracks you can use in your videos.

25 new Guided Edits make complex effects easy to achieve:

Create cool double exposure videos
Make a little movie magic with double exposures. Just follow the simple steps to play a video within a photo and get the best of both worlds.

Add animated matte overlays
Get artistic by revealing your video with animated matte overlays. Apply different shapes and animation styles to full videos, select scenes, or as transitions.
