I suppose you could soften the video a bit with a gentle blur -- but, no, you can't remove wrinkles without doing a frame-by-frame touch-up of the filmstrip in Photoshop Elements, which would take days and days.
More effective would be the FilmLooks in version 11, which can give your video the look of a different era with a single click.
Thanks Steve! So is the effect you are referring actually called a "blur" ? \
The Filmlooks feature sounds really interesting as well . How do i upgarde from 10 to 11 and do you know how much money it costs to do that? Also, is there a way to learn more about the filmlooks functionality before I upgrade?

You can see a preview of FilmLooks on the product page.
It also includes information on upgrading. Although check with Amazon.com first. Sometimes they have deals there that are cheaper than a direct-from-Adobe upgrade.
And, of course, if you want to master version 11 (or version 10), I hope you'll check out my books!
Thanks Steve. One last question, Is there a list where I can view tall the possible themes and theme/descriptions for this feature. They show a few of them for a couple seconds on your video link above but it would be great to see the full comprehensive list to know if any could apply to my current project.

Here's an excerpt from my book:
Brand new to Premiere Elements are FilmLooks, a collection of 12 very cool color presets that automatically give your video the moody look of an artsy Hollywood production (or of a cheap home movie).
Included in this set are effects for shifting colors, tinting your videos, brightening them or making your videos look dark and creepy.
- Crushed Color washes out the color in your video. Great for doing Cold Case-style flashbacks.
- Deep Copper makes your video black & white with a cold, coppery tone.
- Dreamy applies a Gaussian Blur effect.
- Hollywood Movie increases the blue levels of your video to give it a more filmic look. Horror desaturates the color to give your video a dull, deadly look.
- Old Film and Newsreel lower or remove your color levels and “damage” the video to make it look older.
- Pandora turns everyone’s skin blue (like the Na’vi characters in Avatar).
- Red Noir desaturates all of the colors except for a few spots of red.
- Sparta gives your video a surreal, golden look.
- Summer Day washes out your video’s color with yellow “sunshine”.
- Vintage makes your video look like an old home movie.
Okay now you sold me on version 11! That's a really cool list. Any particualr preset/effect you would recommend to help make my 70's basement scene look more dark and dingy, even bordering on creating a horror mood?
Yes. The Horror FilmLook.
Okay I will check it out. Is there any change in the new blue audio effects in version 11 as I already started making audio edits to remove background noise in my current version. Woud it be worthwhile to start thewhole audio-editing process from scratch with Version 11 or is the audio filtering pretty much the same on both 10 and 11?
