Some of my favorite features:

Easily correct and enhance color : The two new effects in Adobe Premiere Elements -  Auto Tone and Vibrance, and three way color corrector- help you quickly correct less than perfect areas in your movie clips. For more information see

Turn photos into entertaining movies: Using the pan and zoom tool in Adobe Premiere Elements, you can create video-like effects from images or movie clips. For movie clips, the effect works best when there is minimal movement of objects within the clip. For more information, see

Share a movie on YouTube with minimum fuss: You can add all the details that YouTube requires in Adobe Premiere Elements, and quickly upload your video to YouTube. For more information, see

Burn Blu ray quality movies on to DVDs (no Blu Ray burner required!):

Use AVCHD if you want to export your video to a high definition format that can be burnt on a DVD. The generated files are Blu Ray compatible and can be played using an AVCHD compatible Blu Ray player. Alternatively, you can export the generated files to a folder on your computer.

FTPS support in Dreamweaver CS5.5

FTPS (FTP over SSL) provides both encryption and authentication support as compared to SFTP that offers only encryption support.

When using FTPS for data transfer, you can choose to encrypt your credentials, and also the data being transmitted to the server. In addition, you can choose to authenticate the server’s credentials and connections. The credentials of a server are validated against the current set of trusted CA server certificates in the Dreamweaver database. Certificate Authorities (CAs), which include companies like VeriSign, Thawte, and so on, issue digitally signed server certificates.

Dreamweaver’s integration with jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap

Dreamweaver’s integration with jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap helps you create and package web applications for deployment on Android™ and iOS-based devices.

To create a mobile application for Android or iPhone™ mobile stores, do the following:

  • You can use any of the starter pages to create your Web application. However, if your web application, when deployed as a mobile application, accesses features native to mobile devices, use the jQuery Mobile (PhoneGap) page.The jQuery Mobile (PhoneGap) starter page contains the phonegap.js file in addition to the other jQuery Mobile files. The phonegap.js file contains the APIs required to work with the native mobile features such as GPS, accelerometer, camera, and so on.
  • Create a package of the application. Dreamweaver uses PhoneGap SDKs to create the package (.apk file for Android/.xcodeproj for iPhone/iPad).
  • Use the APK or XCODEPROJ file to deploy your web application to multiple platforms.
