Does anyone know if it will be possible to download and use CS6 (which I own) to work on OS 12 Monterey?

Hi

Simple answer is no, CS6 won't run on the last few versions of MAC OS

LATEST

CS1, CS2, CS3 and CS4 are dead & gone. The aging activation servers failed and were taken offline. Even if you find an installer, it's impossible to activate the software.

CS5 and CS6 are on life support. But they can still be activated providing you have the following:
1. your original media (disks or downloads) you received at purchase and a way to read them,
2. a legitimate serial number for that version, language and platform (Win/Mac) and if it was an upgrade, a qualifying serial number from an older product,
3. an older operating system that can support legacy 32-bit apps.

 

Legacy Creative Suite will never run on Catalina, Big Sur or Monterey. Nor will it be tested on Win11.  Only the latest Creative Cloud products are compatible with new operating systems.

Creative Suite is discontinued, unsupported and no longer sold legally by any vendor, retailer or in any country.

MODERN OPTIONS:
Photoshop Elements (approx $100, no subscription needed).

- 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).

Beware of fake Adobe reps who may contact you privately offering to sell you software or take control of your computer. It's a scam, run away! Real Adobe employees will never reach out via Outlook, Yahoo, Gmail or Skype.
