I have purchased in the past Version 18 and now 23. I recently reinstalled Catalina on my Mac and neither of those versions are compatible. Surely I don't have to purchase an older compatible version...Help Please!
I have purchased in the past Version 18 and now 23.
Can you clarify those version numbers?
Recent versions include:
Photoshop Elements 2023 (version 21.0) - compatible with Big Sur, Monterey, Ventura
Photoshop Elements 2022 (version 20.0) - compatible with Catalina, Big Sur, Monterey
Photoshop Elements 2021 (version 19.0) - compatible with Mojave, Catalina, Big Sur
Photoshop Elements 2020 (version 18.0) - compatible with High Sierra, Mojave, Catalina
Based on your post, Elements 2020 (version 18.0) should run on Catalina.
Have you tried installing 2020? If so, what issues or error messages have you encountered?
I have 18 and I have 23. I just purchased a refurbished 2014 mac mini and installed Catalina. 23 won't work with it and I tried to download a version of 18 only to be messaged on install that it was not compatible???
Thanks for your assistence!
Perhaps I should add that I'm running Catalina 10.15.7. I believe that was the issue. I've chosen this configuration because I do a lot of Audio Recording and it's a very stable OS. I do not was to upgrade the OS for this reason.
a version of 18 only to be messaged on install that it was not compatible???
Is that Elements 2018? or Elements 2020 (version 18)?
Should be no issues with Elements 2020 on Catalina.
It's 2018 and 2023 that I have previously purchased. Surly I can get an older version that will work
OK. Unfortunately both are unsupported on Catalina.
You'd probably have to downgrade your Mac to High Sierra to get Elements 2018 installed.
So Adobe won't give me an older version that is compatible with my OS?
The only version they now sell is 2023. Version 2024 is imminent. When that is released, they'll stop selling 2023 pretty much the same day.
Someone really need to offer some competition for Adobe so we aren't shackled to this kind of BS!
Is that photoshop elements 2018 and photoshop elements 2023?
