Hesitant it buying Photoshop Elements and Premier.

I am 70 years old and retired. I had a subscription with Photoshop Elements and Premier in 2016.  I thought it was a lifetime membership and now I think that I need to upgrade with the new cost.  Last time I used it was to make a video in 2016.  I enjoy fixing up old and new photos as a hobby for me and my family.  I just bought a new MacPro Tablet, and I still have not used it.  I need advice of what to buy, how to use it on my adroid galaxy S21 mobile phone, MacBook Air, and Ipad Pro Tablet. Would like some friendly direction for this U.S. Navy 100% disabled veteran who is 70 years old, retired and in need of photographic hobby.  Thank you. Felix

photoshop elements and premiere elements are pertual licenses, not subscriptions.

 

your new operating system is not compatible older elements programs so you need to buy current elements programs.

Thank you for enlighten me on this information. It's not a one time membership, it's perpetual yearly licenses.  Thank you, Felix

Just to be clear.  A perpetual license means that you can use it as long as your computer and OS will support it.  There will be no major updates to the program. 

Unfortunately, over the past couple of years, Apple has been changing the Mac OS regularly and each time it does so, it causes problems for Elements users, since Apple apparently does not care about legacy program compatibility - even for programs that it sells in the Apple Store.  So when a future change is made to the Mac OS, do not immediately upgrade it on your computer until you are satisfied that your existing programs will work with it.
