How do I add multi-image effects in Adobe Premier and After Effects?

I have recently taken the plunge to finally learn Adobe Premier Pro and After Effects.  For years I used Pinnacle Studio and had more good luck than frustration (not saying that I didn't have any frustration!).

I was used to using some of the hollywod type effects like using an effect to take 6 still photos and creating some pretting interesting 3D effects in one quick shot.

I totally understand that Adobe Premier Pro and After Effects CS6 give me way more flexibility and options than the Pinnacle products, but my workflow has ground to a halt because I can't see where to find effects such as theses.

I don't mind buying some add-ons if they do what I need, but I don't know where to start?

Right thanks, were you looking for a specific type of "slideshow" like Cell types? Where images float around in different methods?

Hi  lsolheim
which version?
you'll need some patience for sure the learning curb with Adobe is quite large followed along with the topics..
But basically with any good tool  first know what you want then look for the tutorials which are in plenty these days especially with the newer upgrades comes more difficulty.
