Should I purchase Premier Elements 15? I had Photoshop Elements 11 where you could create slideshows with title page on photo, music, adjust time of each photo & burn to a DVD which could be played on computer or TV. I can't do this with my Photoshop Elements 14 so I got the trial version of Premiere 15. With 15, the title page is a separate slide (no photo), can't change font or adjust time of slides & can only burn to DVD to be played in computer - no TV. Am I missing something on Premiere 15 where I can do these other things? I don't make videos. Why did they change all those neat slideshow features in Elements 15 or did I miss something?

I really cannot advise you on the subject matter, but one thing I do find frustrating about Adobe Photoshop Elements (8-15) is that while Adobe makes more of full blown Photoshop availanle on each "New" PSE version, they keep moving the useful functions around.
I like the Photomerge that came out in PSE12 but in PSE 15 it is in a different location and while it works (not quite as well in my experience) It would be great if Adobe added functions rather that shift things around.
Sorry if my comments were not useful, but maybe the message may get back to Adobe.

I found in the Community Home re: Photoshop Elements 13 (even though I have 14) all kinds of comments from users who were also disappointed that we lost these slideshow functions that were available on earlier versions.  I'm going to find out how to contact Adobe and let them know.  This prevents me from buying another version until I can no longer use it with Windows 10.

I would ask in the dedicated Premiere Elements forum:
https://forums.adobe.com/community/premiere_elements/content
The changes in the recent versions of Elements were to allow:
- Mac support
- High resolution mv4 video export (considered a must today).

The bad side is that you have lost all customization you had before. The new way is good enough to provide a very quick way to produce a 'standard' video.

I assume that Premiere Elements has all the needed tools for elaborate output, but you should expect a learning curve; that's why the Premiere Elements forum is to be considered.
