Premiere Elements: Blurry pictures in Premiere Elements

I used my daughter's wedding pictures, which by the way are very high-quality...not at all blurry, to make a video in Premiere Elements, and I am highly disappointed....the pictures are very grainy, fuzzy, and blurry in the finished video. I used Windows Live Movie Maker with the same photos, and they look fine....I feel pretty darn stupid that I spent the money for Premiere Elements because I thought it would be a much better product than the free software that came built in to windows. I feel I've been ripped off by Adobe.

Hi Wanda,

The dimensions of pictures gets resized to whatever the dimensions are for the project that you choose when you first start out. The solution might be to choose a different project that better matches the screen size you will be playing the final movie on when you're finished. On the screen when you first start a project and give it a name there is a button for Change Project, there you could choose a HD one that has 1920x1080 dimensions for example.

If you are planning on playing it from the computer you might also try creating a slideshow from within the Organizer rather than from the Premiere Elements Editor.

Hope these ideas help,

-Dave
