I just purchased PS Elements 2023 after using PSE 11 for many years, and I was hoping to find new useful tools additional to the ones I already knew. But instead , PSE 2023 seems to have rather less than more. Especially one tool is missing: In the past I loved the photomerge function "style match" and used it quite often. Now it seems to be removed from PSE. Really? Why should adobe discontinue a working functionality? Maybe I am wrong, and someone can help me find the tool (maybe renamed?) or show me a workaround to achieve the same effect? Style match was a rather complex function, transferring not only color schemes from one Image to another but also, contrast/clarity and other style characteristics - something you cannot do easily by hand. I wonder whether it was removed because too few people used it or because adobe wants to force its customers to move to another adobe product, preferably a subscription, like they did with Lightroom...
After all a very disappointing experience!
The style match tool hasn't been included is quite some time. You have than enough tools to match styles, with a little bit of work I think you make the new abilites / guided edits a bit more useful. Within the new version (pse 2023) there is a guided edit-- photomerge exposure- which would be a good place to start with. Then use (under the basic guided edit tab choose LEVELS and go with that. I think using those two produces just aboutthe same effect you had in your earlier version.
The screenshot below is from PSE version 10.
I'm not sure that the Photomerge Exposure Guided Edit does what you want to do. However, you may want to look at the Artistic Effects which have a large selection of style transfer presets. These are found under the Effects tab.
There are many options to create an effect but AFAIK, you cannot use your own image as a style template. That ability only exists in a subscription version of Photoshop.
I've tried to use my own images as style templates and couldn't do it.
