Join Steve Grisetti for an in-depth discussion in this video What is eLive?, part of Learning Premiere Elements 14.
- Along the top of the program is a link to eLive, or Elements Live, a site that Adobe has created just for Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements users, and it's linked directly here into the program. In fact, I think the first time you open the program, it defaults to eLive, but you can go to it even if you happen to be in the Expert or Quick workspace, you can go to eLive simply by clicking on this tab. Now eLive is a great place to go to learn, or to find inspiration. These are updated regularly, a number of great little tutorials in here, and articles.
If Everything is selected you see everything. You can simply look at learning, or you can find tutorials on the basic functions of the program, the latest news from Adobe, or inspiration. These are a high-level effects, these are high-level projects that professionals and skilled users of Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements have come up with; great place to find inspiration for your own work. Let's set this back to Everything. Over here on the right, you can find links to the Facebook page for Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements, and the Twitter feed.
And if you click on Help, it will bring you to the Adobe website where you will find interactive help. In other words, it'll work you through what is your issue, how are you dealing with this issue, click on, click on, click on, and as you follow the links, it will guide you either to a solution or it will take you to the technical support area where you can start up a technical support chat or it will send you to the Adobe forums where you can find help from fellow users. Elements Live is a great resource for learning the program, or for figuring out some of your technical issues, or just finding some inspiration.
Adobe hopes to build this community out as more people become involved, and you'll find direct links to Elements Live, or eLive, along the top bar of Photoshop Elements, and the Elements Organizer, as well as Premiere Elements.
