Old versions of Photoshop Elements

I just updated to Photoshop Elements 2023. I have accumulated several old versions of Photoshop Elemets on my computer (2019 Mac Pro desktop, 3.5 GHz, 96 GB RAM, Mac OS 12). I don't recall ever seeing an option to remove old versions during the installation process.   Can I delete the old versions without messing with the newest version?   D. Robinson, Ithaca NY

Yes you can uninstall the older versions, however, if you find file associations and such have been messed up you may have to reinstall pse 2023.

 

Use the uninstaller for each version located in Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements (version)/Support Files

Hi,

 

Yes, you can remove the older versions of Elements. Please check that before removing, do you need a backup of your Elements organizer catalog so that you can use it in Elements 2023.

 

Use the uninstaller for each version located in Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements (version)/Support Files.

 

Regards,

Vipin

Unless you are really short of space on your hard drive, you may want to keep them installed, as some features in the newest versions may have been removed.

Which versions do you have installed?
