Adobe has released Photoshop Elements 2020 and Premiere Elements 2020.

Photoshop Elements 2020 adds several features over previous versions of the software. It can automatically create photo effects, including black and white selection, depth of field effects, and painterly effects. It can also automatically colorize photos and smooth skin. A new one-click subject selection feature makes it easy to pick out a subject, and users can also make unwanted objects vanish. You can read the full list of new features at Adobe's website (opens in new tab).

Premiere Elements 2020 also has several new features that make editing simple. If a video was taken in an environment with low light, Premiere Elements can clean it up with a Reduce Noise effect. It can also swap out skies in the background and create time-lapse videos from a series of photos. Premiere Elements can fill the video frame when a video is filmed in either portrait or landscape mode and needs to fit into the other orientation. The full details of the latest version of Premiere Elements can be found at Adobe's website (opens in new tab).

Both pieces of software support Smart Tags, making it easier to find content. They both also have expanded HEIF and HEVC support.
