I'd like to purchase Adobe Premier Elements, but I don't want to spend an extra $50 if I don't need to for the "Plus" version. These are the things that it includes (that the regular supposedly doesn't provide):

  • Get exclusive access to libraries of creative Plus extras
  • Get cinematic inspiration with movie themes, special effects, and more delivered regularly to your software
  • Get help with regular deliveries of easy-to-use how-tos

I don't care about their online storage, I don't care about the 'how-tos', or updates being regularly 'delivered' to the software. I DO care about the extra special effects, themes, and other content, my question is are these things I care about free and accessible somewhere? (It almost sounds like these stuff would be free, just not 'automatically' available in the software, just can't find it.

There are templates available elsewhere, but if you want the ones that they are delivering, then you need to be a Plus member.

See ProDesign Tools for direct download links of some templates. You need to open a free Adobe account, and login in another window to use the links. See directions on the linked page.
