Hello.  I'm new to elements.  I've used Photoshop regularly in the past.  Is there any way in PE 2020 to fade the effect of a filter or ajustment as there used to be in Photoshop?  There used to be a fade command under the edit menu in PS.

Are you trying to create a vignette?

There are many options via a Gradient adjustment layer.

One can reduce the layer opacity to "fade" something. 

Please be more specific as to what you wish to do. It would help if you post a representative sample for us to look at.

The "fade" option in Photoshop is not natively available in Elements.

As indicated by hatstead, PSE users generally achieve the same effect by creating a 'merged' layer (shift + Ctl + Alt E) over the stack and playing with the opacity.

For old PS users migrating to Elements, I recommend the very affordable add-on Elements+ which has many scripts to recover 'hidden' features of the full Photoshop, including the script 'fade'

With Photoshop, when you used an effect or an artistic filter such as paint daubs or neon glow, there was a fade action in the edit menu that let you toggle the intensity of the effect  between 100% and  0% so that you could quickly preview different levels of the affect or action .  I had read that using layers might be the most similar way to do the same thing with this program.  I'm still new to Elements, so I thought I'd inquire in case I was missing something.  Thanks.

The layer can be adjusted as to opacity and blending mode.

Invariably, I duplicate the background layer and make the changes to the background copy layer. Then, I can toggle off/on between the two layers to visualize "before and after."
