Why can ́t Elements products be included in Creative Cloud? In particular, Premiere Pro feels really heavy to work with. With Premiere Elements we could do alot. As a Creative Cloud member I thought that I had acsess to all Adobe products???

The creative cloud includes all of the professional programs, but not the consumer programs such as Revel, Elements, and Premiere Elements. If you wish to save your files from Elements to the cloud, you can save them to Revel. Currently you an just save jpg files to Revel, but in the coming months, we will expand to other file formats.

I get the PRO vs Consumer idea but I use Photoshop everyday at work, I use Lightroom at home to organize photos but I like Revel for sharing with family and the portability and speed of the app for iPads/iPhones. Some of the features of Photoshop Elements is great for my wife that doesn't know Photoshop. I have a subscription to Creative Cloud and it would be a major plus to have PS Elements added and a bonus if Revel was added too...

Currently, I use lightroom and have CS5 on my windows and CS6 on my Mac. I want to begin using Creative Cloud. My son and my husband just want to have fun and get a little creative so it would be great to have one of the Elements level photoshop available to them. Thank You for having this community page.

I use both Lightoom and Photoshop CC. However, I often recommend Photoshop Elements to less sophisticated individuals who are looking for a photo editor and don't want the large learning curve and intimidation of full Photoshop. I need to be able to help them and to do so I must have Photoshop Elements. If I must buy Elements when it updates, I will probably switch to recommending Picasa.

Stanley, I agree and relate to your post. I am the go to person in my community because they know I am a photographer amd Graphic Artist. I guide others through all their questions and inquiries and show them how it's done without getting them discouraged. But my dilema is that of yours that Photoshop 6 or CC has some great new tools. But it's a fact it will be overwhelming to them even if they take a photoshop class. I want to share and inspire my passion for photography and not put a road block up for those adults and or youngsters with an idea of having fun and becoming a photographer.

The one tool that photo elements has that is invaluable to me is the ability to quickly batch a watermark on all open photos. This seemingly simple process is lacking in the professional versions. An "action" or script is way more complicated/ Also, in iPhoto, the photo name on a slideshow could be done in the classic view, but now in "photos" that has been eliminated.

When I show friends or customers a series of prints, it is very beneficial to have the name of the pic, or my watermark on the photo, This functionality is not very easy to use in the professional packages. Please help. Thanks.

Similar to what Vinny said, Elements also has the ability to very quickly create Calendars whereas this is *extremely* tedious in CC.

I totally agree. We should have Premiere Elements as part of our Creative Cloud subscription.. The fact that people have been asking for it for 5 years!!! and it still isn't in CC is sad and shows how much Adobe listens to their customers.

Obviously, you want Premiere Elements for free because you already have subscribed to the Cloud.
There is no doubt about the position from Adobe explained by Pattie F.
What you seem to miss is that Photoshop and Premiere Elements are NOT a subscription software, which is what most users want.

I am on the fence now whether to buy the "Creative Cloud" service or not. They advertise that it comes with ALL of their apps, but it clearly doesn't come with Elements. I've heard several professionals say they still like to use Elements for quick jobs that take MUCH longer to do with the Pro versions, so I feel like it's a bit of a ripoff to not include them in their premium Creative Cloud service.

I looked into this last year and found the same answer, but looked again just now in hopes that Adobe had come to their senses and finally decided to include it, but I guess not.

A shame for both me and Adobe.
