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?
"I had read that elements was basically the only photoshop that works with Catalina 10.15"
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.
