Photoshop elements editor not working in Monterey 12.0.1
I'm having this problem too and haven't found a solution.
please let me know if you find solutions
What version of Elements are you using? Adobe is aware of the problem and I believe is working on a fix for Elements 2022. I doubt whether a fix will be provided for any earlier version.
2019 elements wont open after monterey 12.0.1 update.
I was getting ready to buy 22 but I won't if it will not be supported in a year!
why wouldn't they just fix earlier versions... i belielve they just need to verify themselves as an identified developer?!
mine won't open either.... i beleive adobe just need to make patch verifying the are an identifed developer...this stinks as I'm overseas on holiday and can't open any pics!
My experience is even stranger. I had my computer in the shop for reasons that ultimately resulted in my copied and pasted post from yesterday, 11/21/21. When they checked it initially, there were no issues with hardware. They reinstalled after removing everything. Unbeknownst to me until I got it home, they had upgraded the OS to Monterey. PSE21 with the Editor worked just fine. And did so for over a week. But then other continuing issues returned and the post explains the rest.
Post from yesterday
"After 6 very long months of cascading issues, Apple finally replaced the logic board in the Mac I bought in April. So when starting up the computer home from the local shop, PSE Editor will not open, Organizer is working fine. Should I delete the ENTIRE PhotoShop Elements21 suite including the Organizer, then download a new copy of PS Elements to have everything work together? Or is there something else I should do instead?"
I now see this is part of a larger issue. Why it worked before with Monterey and why it doesn't now, makes zero sense. Hope Adobe gets on this ASAP...without us having to pay out for PSE22.
Adobe is actively working with Apple to resolve the issues with OS 12.0 Monterey.
As we have more information, we will update the forums.
Thank you for your patience.
I would appreciate some confirmation from Adobe on this. If this is true, it is a shameful abandonment by Adobe of faithful users of PSE.
How about it ADOBE SUPPORT? ADOBE Insiders? ADOBE PSE volunteers? Are you going to require us, even those who had just purchased PSE 21 to shell out another $79? How about offering a credit or a discount?
That would at least be a tad bit fair.
My reply from Adobe ... then they said buy newest version is only fix
Elements 21 editor will not open
I have purchased Premier Elements and Photoshop Elements in September 2020. I used it twice. Now it does not work. Why are there so many problems with Adobe products. Under NZ consumer law I am entitled to a refund. Please advise what you are doing to fix this problem if anything, or I think I should look for a refund.
Which operating system are you using on which Elements 2020 does not work?
Can you provide more details on exactly what does not work?
Get your refund - this is my reply from Adobe -
@Kesata13, from what I understand, Elements 2021 works if you update to Monterey version 12.1.
If it is not working for you, why are you complaining to Adobe about your legacy software not working on your new OS? Why aren't you asking Apple why its new OS doesn't support legacy programs?
If you have a specific problem with your software, ask a specific question and maybe someone here will have an anwer for you.
That is why they get ADVANCE copies of those updated operating systems to test out their products in ADVANCE of the OS being released.
I agree that it would be nice if it worked like that but it does not. Software development is too frenetic, fast-paced and shrouded in secrecy.
Apple is notorious for last minute, deep changes to their code and, lately, bug-ridden major releases with several dot releases to make major versions stable.
Adobe does not expend engineering hours to do deep dive testing until they've got the gold code (could be the day of public release) since they would be testing their apps on a moving target. A "broken" feature in an app could be either an Apple OS bug or an intended Apple design change in the OS.
Hence there are frequently lags between operating system releases and software compatibility testing.
This is pretty simple... it doesn't work... Adobe doesn't care... Apple says it's Adobe's problem...can you explain this picture??? So, who on this forum can tell the difference between works and doesn't... ? App Store says the developer says it works??? It doesn't ! Developer say "it doesn't- buy new one???" I say " "why? -help" the developer Adobe says " case closed"
class action...false advertising.. or just bad customer service... ? All of the above?
get your refund!
Funny Adobe won't let me post there reply... here's a screen shot...
Thier reply ...
Please try the steps mentioned in this article to mitigate the launch issues encountered with PSE 2021 and PSE 2022 on Mac OS Monterey.
Let us know if this resolves the launch issues for you.
Nope, still $99.00 of worthless software in my applications folder.
I purchased from Apple App Store. See errors as attached images. So disappointed by all this runaround! Adobe should offer free or prorated upgrades! I've already posted all my other info... please feel free to review before any more questions.....
