1) Adobe only sells the current version, PSE 2021 (version 19.0). Verify the system requirements:

2) Use the backup and restore process:

3) Backup and restore saves your media files and your catalog in a 'backup' folder which is NOT a simple copy of those files, it's all the resources you need to be able to restore the media files and the catalog where you want, keeping the links in the catalog valid on the new location (disk, partition, new master folde...)

Exporting means creating copies or new versions of your selected files into a single destination folder.

1. Purchase Photoshop Elements 21. If you registered the product, you may get a discount towards the new version from Adobe as a repeat customer. But check for price in the box stores and Amazon.

2. Review this tech note:
