I am running CS5 and LR6 on High Sierra and, except for a few minor glitches, they work as expected.

I need to update some other apps I have, but have to move to a more current OS to do so.

I fear that if I upgrade to Mojave, my Adobe legacy apps will no longer work. Anyone been through this?

I suggest you go for dual boot. Taking the system far beyond the one it was designed for is likely to make for more excitement with key apps than you want.

Thanks for your help. I've decided to go with partitioning and putting the newer OS on a smaller one for use with those few apps I want to update.

What a great idea! I have an old iMac with Snow Leopard and High Sierra on partitions.

I'll need some guidance to get that done, but this is the solution for me! Thank you.
