Adobe's latest Elements 2023 photo and video editing software lean on AI to provide faster, simpler, and more streamlined options.

With 2022 beginning to draw to a close, it’s time for Adobe to roll out 2023 versions of Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements. But beyond the updated date, the company says that these iterations will be offering more AI-powered editing tools that will make projects easier for both advanced and novice users.

These AI tools include new Artistic Effects that can be applied to your full video with one click, as well as Moving Elements for photos. What Moving Elements do is let you single out specific sections of your static images (waterfalls, clouds, etc.) to make them animate, then you can save them as a GIF to share online.

Creative content also has more photo patterns and backgrounds, new slideshow and collage templates have been added, and Premiere Elements has 100 new audio tracks. There's a Peek Through Overlays option that will add more of an illusion of depth to your photos, too. And you can connect the new Elements 2023 software to a new companion app (for mobile or computer) for remote cloud access to view or share your work.

Despite all the additions, Adobe claims the new Elements 2023 software will also provide better performance than previous versions. Installation is said to be 35% faster, but perhaps more importantly, it supposedly launches 50% faster (70% on M1 Macs) and uses up 48% less storage space.

Photoshop Elements 2023 and Premiere Elements 2023 are available now (without a subscription) for $99.99 each or as an upgrade from their 2022 versions for $79.99 each. Or if you want both of them, you can get the bundle for $149.99—or $119.99 if you’re upgrading.
