I have always had issues with Elements. I keep upgrading to the latest version hoping that Adobe finally cared enough to produce a decent upgrade. The 2022 version is awful. It either freezes, crashes, or uses all of my system's 32GB of RAM. It now freezes every time I try to rotate an Apple HEIC photo. Even when I just do one at a time.
Adobe support, can you please stop making me pay for new "yearly" versions while you refuse to release patches to the product I already own? How do I get Adobe suppoert's attention devoted to fixing these issues?
