Adobe Premiere Elements 2
Premiere Elements' arsenal of video and audio effects has been beefed up with this release, and we greatly prefer how the streamlined interface makes it easy to find them. You still won't find the fun filters of other tools, but it has professional blur and color effects that the others can't touch.

Many windows, no overlap
Premiere Elements 2's interface is basically unchanged since the first version--it still uses a standard Adobe many-windowed layout that might make novices cry--but the few changes it has make it far easier to work with. The windows are now docked (although resizable), instead of free-floating as before. That eliminates the overlap problem of Elements 1; now when you drag a window to expand it, the others automatically contract.
