Audio and Video Formats Supported in Photoshop Elements 10

By Barbara Obermeier, Ted Padova

In addition to the various image formats, Elements supports audio and video files. The support is limited to adding and viewing audio and video files in the Organizer and printing the first frame in a video file. Other kinds of edits made to audio and video files require special software for audio and video editing.

Audio files can be imported in slide shows. The acceptable file formats for audio files are MP3, WAV, QuickTime, and WMA. If you have audio files in another format, you need to convert the file format. For these kinds of conversions, you can search the Internet for a shareware audio-conversion program.

Video files can also be imported in slide shows. Elements supports the WMV (Windows) and Apple QuickTime (Macintosh) video formats. As with audio files, if videos are saved in other formats (too numerous to mention), you need to convert the video format to a format acceptable to Elements. For video-conversion utilities, you can also find shareware programs to do the job. Search the Internet for a video converter.
