In this post, I am going to demonstrate how to use the Slide Show Editor in Photoshop Elements 2018 (PSE 2018). PSE has pretty much always included a slide show editor. The editor that was used in PSE 10, and earlier versions was full featured and easy to use. One of my favorite features was the ability to apply custom panning and zooming effects. Also, older versions had the ability to add highly customizable captions and titles.
Adobe found its legacy code too expensive to maintain, and long about PSE 11, they totally redesigned the Slide Show Editor. Unfortunately, to increase its user friendliness, they removed most of the customization options. Frankly for some time, I kept PSE 10 installed, just so I could make better slide shows. Premiere Elements 2018 (PRE 2018), can be used to make advanced features slide shows, but it significantly harder in my opinion.
Since the new Slide Show Editor was introduced, its capabilities have evolved. I find it useful to make quick slide shows when I do not need the customization provided by PRE 2018. Its biggest shortcoming, in my opinion, is that it can only accept video clips less than 10-15 seconds. This is too short.
