Export and share your videos


Direct Facebook sharing is no longer available, but you can save your creations on computer and share them separately. For more details about this issue and workaround, see Unable to upload photos and videos to Facebook.

Sharing your movies is now simpler and easier than before. The Export & Share panel contains everything you need, to save and share your finished project. You can save your project for viewing on the web, mobile phone, computer, DVD, and more.

The Export & Share option includes all the available export formats in a single panel. Individual tabs on the Export & Share panel represent the various media options that you can choose from.

Export and share

  • View settings for multiple formats from a single panel.

  • View recommended settings based on the format of your source clip and the desired output type.

  • Preview your video before exporting.

  • Scan through settings for each media type in an easy-to-view format.

Recommended settings

You can choose to change the settings to suit your need.

Based on your desired output, you can select a resolution of your choice, and then the formats for that resolution.

For some of the formats you can also specify Quality, and Frame Rate among other options.

Click Custom>Advanced Settings to create customized export settings, or select an already created custom preset from the Presets drop-down list. To learn more about customized settings see, Advanced Settings.


Changing the Advanced settings without an in‑depth understanding of video can produce undesirable results during playback.

Watch a preview of your movie to ensure that the output meets your requirements like audio, length of clip, etc.

Premiere Elements creates the output and saves it to the location you specified.

Quick Export

The Quick Export option is the easiest way to export your videos. The video format created with this option can be viewed across multiple devices. You can also share this format on several online platforms.

For HD projects (1280x720 resolution and above), the default Quick Export preset is as follows:

Codec: H264
Resolution: 1280x720
Frame rate: 30
Field order: None (Progressive)

For non-HD projects (below 1280x720 resolution), the default Quick Export preset is as follows:

Codec: H264
Resolution: 640x480
Frame rate: 30
Field order: None (Progressive)



From Premiere Element 2022, the Quick Export has non-landscape presets and Reduce File Size checkbox with a slider to reduce the size of your creation as per your requirement. The slider will reduce the size by changing its bitrate property.


For non-landscape projects, the default Quick Export preset is as follows:

Codec: H264

Resolutions: 720x1280 , 1080x1080 , 720x720  (depend on project and imported media)

Frame rate: 29.97 fps

Field order: None (Progressive) 


The video you edit in the Quick view timeline or the Expert view timeline is not available as an independent video file until you export, or share, it to a video format. After export, you can play it back on your computer, in other media player or editing programs, and move it to other computers. You can export movies for playback on your computer, TV, phone, or tablet, among others. All mobile files are compressed using the H.264 compression standard.

Select the specific media format from the Devices category. The options available to you are Computer, TV, Mobile, Custom.

Premiere Elements also lets you quickly export your movie in formats suitable for use in specific mobile devices by providing optimized settings for specific devices. All mobile files are compressed using the H.264 compression standard. Use the recommended settings for best results. If your project requires special settings, you can click Advanced Settings to make changes.



Premiere Elements converts all audio to the 16-bit depth and 48 kHz sample rate required by DVDs. For the best results, record your audio using these settings.

Before you begin burning to a DVD or a Blu-ray disc:

  • Ensure that the disc you’ve selected is compatible with both your burner and the player.
  • Check available disk space. You must have enough available hard disk space to accommodate the compressed files as well as any scratch disk files created during export.
  • If your DVD burner is not compatible with Adobe Premiere Elements, you can create an ISO image and then burn the image to a DVD using the software that came with your burner. Specify your option in the Type drop-down list.

If you don’t have enough free disk space on one drive partition, you can specify a different partition for the scratch disk files using the Edit > Preferences > Scratch Disks / Adobe Premiere Elements > Preferences > Scratch Disks command. (You can verify the space needed in the Burn dialog box.)


When a disc burn operation is unsuccessful due to a hardware failure, Premiere Elements creates and saves an ISO image. You can then burn the ISO image to a disc, at a convenient time.

See disc burning guidelines for tips on burning discs.


Social Media

Premiere Elements enables you to export your movie in formats suitable for delivery through the Internet. Using the Export & Share panel, you can upload your video directly to the web.

Select an online sharing platform from the Social Media category. The options available to you are YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, and Instagram.

Using the recommended settings is the quickest way to export your movie. You can also customize the settings to match a specific situation. Remember, however, to make sure that the data rate of your movie is appropriate for the intended playback medium.

For sharing to YouTube and Vimeo, click Begin Share to initiate the authorization process after which you can continue with the sharing workflow of the selected platform.

For sharing to Facebook and Instagram, save the video to a local folder and then upload it to the selected platform.


You can choose to export only audio from your movie using the Export & Share > Audio command.

When you choose this option, Adobe Premiere Elements facilitates saving it as Windows Waveform file (.wav), MP3 file (.mp3), AAC file (.aac) or AIFF file (.aiff). Adjust the quality to suit your requirements.



You can export any frame or still‑image clip as a still‑image file. The frame is exported from the current time position in the Expert view timeline or the Monitor panel. Following the export, the frame appears in the Project Assets panel.

You can create animated GIFs from small video segments as well. Select GIF and choose a resolution to create an animated GIF. The duration of GIF should not be more than 10 seconds.

You can also export a clip or movie as a sequence of still images, with each frame as a separate still‑image file. Navigate to Advanced Setting and select the Export As Sequence option. Exporting as a sequence can be useful in the following scenarios:

  • When you want to use a clip in an animation that does not support video formats or requires still image sequence.
  • When you want to use a clip in a 3D application that does not support video formats or requires still image sequence.
    When you export a clip, Premiere Elements numbers the files automatically.
