Continued Automation Powered by Adobe Sensei
Photoshop Elements continues to simplify editing and creating with four new features that leverage artificial intelligence to get you started.
Automatically colorize your photos — Automatically colorize a B&W photo or give new life to an existing color photo.
New one-click subject selection automatically selects the subject of your photo with a single click and gives you the option to then easily apply an effect or cut out your subject and add it to another photo.
Smooth skin automatically — Photoshop Elements 2020 enables you to make the people in your photos look their best with Sensei powered skin smoothing functionality. Once applied, just use the slider to adjust the amount of smoothing to your preference.

Make unwanted photo objects vanish – This Guided Edit walks you through the steps that help you put the focus on your subject by easily removing distractions from your photos – from powerlines to pedestrians or selfie crashers.
Our second new Guild Edit enables you to add creative sparkle with photo patterns. Learn how to give a little something extra by adding a fun pattern. Brush on hearts, stars, and more to create a photo that looks amazing on printed cards, wall art, or social media.

New Guided Edits
Premiere Elements 2020 is introducing three new Guided Edits, bringing the total to 23 step-by-step video editing guides that help you get started.
Create dynamic time-lapse videos —This Guided Edit helps you turn a series of photos or videos into a time-lapse that speeds up the action.

Finally, learn how to fill the frame to match your video. This Guided Edit teaches you how to transform a vertical clip or photo into a horizontal video (or vice versa) in a seamless way that eliminates black bars on the sides or top and bottom of your videos.
Find videos faster with Smart Tags
Premiere Elements 2020 features two new Adobe Sensei powered organization features that help you work with and find your video files faster.
Just like your photos, your videos are now auto-tagged with Smart Tags based on subjects like sunsets, birthdays, dogs, cats, and more. In addition, faces in your videos are automatically identified during import and stacked by person so that it’s easy to tag and find them later.
Enjoy faster performance and expanded HEIF and HEVC support
Last year, the team worked hard to improve performance with Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements, and this year you’ll experience even speedier performance for everyday tasks. With the 2020 release, you can also import, and edit HEIF photo files and HEVC video files on Windows as well as macOS.
