There are no direct equivalents to those PSP commands
Your best bets are to try
But to do what you really want to do in either Photoshop or Elements, you're
going to have to learn how to do edge masking before you run USM.
(actually, it's a good skill set to have no matter what tool you use)
Here's an excellent tutorial on the process.

manual supplied with Elements and I find it very difficult to navigate the
web help system. I am used to Paint Shop Pro 8. Is there a technique or
command in Elements that does the same job as 'Edge preserve smooth' or
'JPEG artifact remove' in PSP8? Sometimes I need to smooth the edges after a
USM. Thanks for any help. I hope I am in the right forum with this request!
I run Windows 98 (rather old!)
