Hello! I have an iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2011) 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5, Memory 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6750M 512 MB, running macOS High sierra 10.13.6. When I download the Photoshop installer or the Lightroom installer from my Adobe Creative Cloud account I get this message "Sorry, you'll need to upgrade your OS to run the newest version of Lightroom." When I check the minimum system requirements, the only thing that my iMac lacks is the 1GB GPU with Metal support. Does that mean I can't run Lightroom or Photoshop on my machine? Is there any solution?

Thanks!

The minimum requirements are now 10.14 and above as Adobe no longer support anything below this: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-cc/system-requirements.html

Is there a way to install an older version of Photoshop or Lightrrom? And how to know which version supports my Mac?

You can do this via the Creative Cloud App but selecting Other Versions via the (I think) three dot menu.

 

Photoshop 21 and Lightroom 3.4 should still work I believe.
