It sort of works.  There are a few commands in the Action that are not available in Elements 2020 and you have to click through them many times to continue with the action.  I didn't fully read the instructions for the Action before trying it and it took me a few attempts to get it going.  Also, be aware that the action takes several minutes to complete.    Here is a screenshot showing the result within the original image.  Had I read the instructions properly, I may have ended up with something better.

It's always been my understanding that "some" Ps actions (created in Photoshop) can be imported and used in PSE.  Other Ps actions simply won't work.  You probably knew that much.  After giving your link a look over (and the video) I'm inclined to think those actions might be a little above PSE's paygrade but who knows.  Pretty cool if it could be used.

I may give it a try! Greg, Phinny, thanks for your feedback. Do you have any info or advice on install differences between PS & PSE? I don't want to muck up my smoothly running PSE 2020.

I just tried it in PS Big Brother and ran into the same problems as I had with PSE.  So, I think it's a problem with the Action itself.  Or maybe I should RTFM.   😁

 

Running the same photo in PS CC:

I wish I could offer some useful advice, wchettel.  There was some chit chat in the comments section about problems even some Photoshop users were having but no mention of PSE.  Darn it.
