Hi to everyone, I'm Stefano. I'm going to buy a new Mac to replace my old iMac 2011 and I'm looking to buy a mac mini with M1 processor. 

I bought Photoshop and Premiere Essential 2018, could I use them on the Mini M1? Seems there will be issues attempting to do that. 

There's no way to contact Adobe for help, so I asked here because otherwise I really don't know where to start. And this only could be a good reason to doubt about Adobe support. 

Anyway, if 2018 version does not support M1 and/or Big Sur, is there the possibility to update to the last version, hoping that 2021 release is supporting M1 processor? 

I hope I don't have to buy again the two softwares, otherwise I will find another way for sure. 

Regards, 

Stefano

Elements 2018 cannot be used with Big Sur, so you will need to upgrade to Elements 2021.  As the owner of a prior version, you are entitled to a discount on the purchase (from Adobe).

 

As for Elements 2021 working with the M1 chip, take a look at this thread.  And also see this HelpX Article about Big Sur Compatibility.  (There is a link in the article to help you with contacting Adobe chat support.  You can also contact Adobe Support via telephone using the numbers listed here: https://helpx.adobe.com/contact/phone.html.  But note the limited hours of operation in Europe and other parts of the world.
