Hi. For the past ten years I've been using Adobe CS5.5 on OSX, and unfortunately my old computer crashed a few days ago. I've since got a new laptop running:  

Mac OS Big Sur version 11.5.2

and when I tried to install CS5.5 via disc this morning I got told it wan't able to install on the newer operating system. Is there a way around this, or will I have to buy more recent version of the creative suite?

There is NO way to install that old program on Apple's BS operating system

 

There is also NO creative suite that will work, and CS6 is no longer sold

 

You may buy a subscription https://creative.adobe.com/plans

 

Or look at http://www.adobe.com/products/elements-family.html for a one time purchase

Legacy Creative Suite is gone.  It's discontinued & unsupported.  Besides, it wouldn't run much less install on Catalina, Big Sur or Monterey so that wouldn't help you.

 

Your best option is to buy a Creative Cloud Photography Plan starting at $10/month for 12 months.  It includes the following:

- Photoshop CC and Photoshop on iPad
- Lightroom on desktop, mobile and the web
- Lightroom Classic
- Portfolio website + hosting
- Spark with premium features
- Bridge
- 20 GB cloud storage (upgradable to 1 TB).
