I currently have Elements Organiser 2018 (version 188.8.131.52) on an obsolete Macbook Pro which runs on Big Sur. I have just purchased a new Macbook Pro with an M1 chip that runs on Monterey.
I tried installing Elements 2018 on my new Macbook Pro, but it won’t take it. Therefore I need to upgrade to Elements 2022. I’m unsure of the best way to deal with the combination of new computer and upgraded software. What is the best order of approach to tackle this?
Am I better to install Elements 2022 onto the old Macbook and then export the program and data to the new Macbook or is it better to install Elements 2022 straight onto the new Macbook and then restore a backup of the Elements 2018 data?
You could upload the trail version of Elements 2022 & see if that works on your Macbook Pro (it might be different from the Mac-mini though I doubt it). It's a lot easier than trying to get a refund from Adobe! Let me know how you get on!
Hi, we did look at Affinity but it won't work for us. Haven't added Metadata to any of our photos, all of which have multiple keyword and event tags. Will need to stick with Elements for the time being and hope for the best!
In desperation I uninstalled Elements 2022 (PSE 22) & installed the 2020 version as there are lots of compatibility issues with PSE 21. To my surprise, it's proving a stable environment. I'm loading & testing Onone plugins, one by one. Nothing has crashed yet. It might work for you?
