Demands some video know-how Hardware hungry Premiere Elements has long been offered as a bundle option for PC users alongside Photoshop Elements, but it's only now that Adobe has created a Mac version. It's a low-cost video-editing tool aimed at the same users as iMovie, but goes much further, to provide a taste of professional video editing tools at an amateur-friendly price. It's sold on its own, or comes as part of a bundle with Elements 9, the latest version of Adobe's mid-range image editor.
