I had PSE 2020 trial which worked fine. I went ahead and purchased 2021. Downloaded but seemed to be stuck on verifying organizer. So editor and organizer won't launch but says they're open in task. I restarted the computer and this little window verifying organizer pops up again but doesn't load all the way and seems stuck. I just spent 140 for this program. I had read that elements was basically the only photoshop that works with Catalina 10.15 . It does say in system requirements that it's compatible as well so what could be the issue?

No that's quite wrong. The latest Photoshop Elements works; Photoshop Elements is the limited "consumer" product. But Photoshop also works. That is the regular "professional" Photoshop, from $10 per month.

Well that's good to know but it didn't help with the issue I was having. Anyways I had to uninstall everything including elements 2020 and reinstall elements 2021. Now it installed fine and is working fine.. I would love to have photoshop so I might get it if it's not going to cause performance issues on my mac. Creative cloud was slowing me down quite a bit actually, once I got rid of it my computer started running more smooth and it was a pain to get rid of too.

One year later, Photoshop Elements 2022 about 24 hours and many attempts, usually it times out on 0% occassionally it just stays on 1%, the previous attempt was 1% sor about 16 hours. I have been paying and regularily using Photoshop for years, Since I stopped that subscription due to incomparable cst with a different developer I decided to used my purchased Elements. Adobe told me if I wanted my FULLY paid for Elements to work on Catalina I´d have to buy agaig for ANOTHER ONE TIME payment... Really they are like snake oil salesmen. SO anyway, bought it, mailed the snakeoil salesman and asked for assistance or a file that works, now I´m on their forum as he made the sale and done his job...

They wont let me upload a screenshot of the install here, the screenshot upload has been stuck at about 1/3....
