You can use the drawing tools in the Monitor panel to create a variety of shapes, such as rectangles, ellipses, and lines. After you draw a shape, you can apply a style to it, and change the fill and stroke attributes.
A. Rectangle B. Ellipse C. Rounded Rectangle D. Line
Shift-drag to constrain the shape’s aspect ratio.
Alt-drag to draw from the center of the shape.
Shift+Alt-drag to constrain the aspect ratio and draw from the center.
Drag diagonally across the corner points to flip the shape diagonally as you draw.
Drag across, up, or down to flip the shape horizontally or vertically as you draw.
When adding an image to a title, you can add it as a graphic element or place it in a box to become part of the text. Premiere Elements accepts both bitmapped images and vector‑based artwork. Vector-based art is rasterized to a bitmapped version in the Monitor panel. By default, an inserted image appears at its original size. Once inserted into a title, you can modify the image’s properties (such as scale) as you would other objects.
note: Unlike text and graphic objects, images you add to titles aren’t embedded as part of the title. Instead, the image references the source image file in the same way that items listed in the Project Assets panel refer to source audio and video files.
Right-click/ctrl-click in the Monitor panel and choose Image > Add Image.
Choose Text > Image > Add Image.
Premiere Elements imports the image at the size at which it was created.
Images acquired with a digital still camera tend to be much larger than a video project’s screen size. To resize an image without distorting it, Shift‑drag the image’s corner handle or use the Text > Transform > Scale command.
When you place an image in a text box, the image flows with the text as though it were a text character. It can have the same attributes as other characters, such as strokes.
Right-click/ctrl-click the Monitor panel and choose Image > Insert Image Into Text.
Choose Text > Image > Insert Image Into Text.
Choose Text > Image > Restore Image Size.
Choose Text > Image > Restore Image Aspect Ratio.
If you want to use an image or moving video as a background only, superimpose the title on a clip of the image or video.
