Opening PDD files and converting to TIFF on a Mac

Question:  I have a bunch of old PDD files that I can't open.  Must I buy Photoshop Elements for Mac (is there such a thing?) and install it in order to open and convert these files to TIFF or JPEG files?

I used to have PhotoDeluxe, back when I had a PC.  I got a Mac in 2009 and haven't had Adobe photo programs since then.  I'm running Sierra 10.12.6.

I'd be grateful for any help you can give me.

Elements for Mac should read the PDD files.

Just download and install the trial version (30 days).

Download Photoshop Elements | 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10

I just tried PSE2021: it opens my 20 year old .pdds ok. I am on Windows 10 (1909).

 

Edit:

I can even batch export to tiff or psd format from the organizer.
