I can't find the way to edit filters in Elements 13. I used to be able to change colors, brush stroke length, contrast etc. Am I missing something obvious, or is my version just too cheap to include editing tools?
Has anybody seen this question yet? Should I ask in a different forum?
Sorry, you posted in the wrong forum, this is a subspace of the Captivate forum. I will move your question to the Photoshop Elelments forum.
To change filter properties, please navigate to Filter > Filter Gallery
In the Filter Gallery, you have the option to customize the filter properties.
Should there be any more queries, feel free to reach out to me.
How about if I want to adjust cutout or neon glow etc.?

Both of these filters are available within the 'Artistic' subcategory in the Filter Gallery.
You can adjust the filter properties as per your requirements inside the filter gallery.
My view doesn't look anything like yours. I'm attaching my view.

Oops, here's my screen shot. I hope it helps firgure out why I can't find editing options.
You are on Artistic Filter
Yes, can I edit this?
There are a variety of filters which you can apply.
Since you have the library of artistic filters as shown on the drop-down, try it by all means!
Open a picture file
Activate the filters, and select one. Try "Film Grain". You can fine-tune with the grain, highlight, and intensity sliders.
We look forward to your progress.
This is what my screen looks like after selecting "Film Grain." Please notice that there are no sliders anywhere that I can use to adjust the film grain. This is what I need help in locating. Is there a button to push that I'm not seeing?
When you left click on the film grain icon, it should activate the filter. Apparently this does not work. Suggest that you delete preferences via Edit menu>General>Preferences. If that does not fix it, you may have to uninstall and reinstall the software. Prior to uninstalling it may be prudent to deactivate via the Help menu.

From the fly-out menu of the Filters panel, click on Automatically Show Filter Gallery.
Then when you double click a filter the Filter Gallery will open to the adjustments.
No fly-out menu appears.

Click where the arrow below is pointing to see the fly-out menu.
No "Automatically Show Filter Gallery" here.
Click on the words Automatically Show Filter Gallery and you'll see a check mark beside the words to tell you that option is active.
Sorry, my bad. When I did that, nothing changed. Now check this out - on
the upper right under "Styles" and to the right of "Artistic," is a blue
asterisk-looking icon. When I scroll over it, the "Show style settings" box
appears, but then a black circle with a slash also appears over the blue
icon so I can't click it. I'm betting that this is the root of the problem.
Why can't I click on "Show style settings"?
Hey, I think restarting the computer may have done the trick. I'll reply
for sure later.
