Also there is an update available for Elements 2022, which has this fix in case if you do not want to update your macOS to 12.1.

 

To Update Elements, Request you to please Launch and Close Elements Organizer and leave your system idle, depending on your interent connection speed - the update will be applied automatically and should fix the launch issue for PSE.

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop Elements 2022 on macOS Monterey. Our product team is working on this. Please check: https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-elements-discussions/does-photoshop-elements-2022-work-with...

 

Meanwhile, you can try the steps mentioned below & they might help.

1. Please go to the System Preferences for your Mac, then Security and Privacy, then select the Privacy tab.

2. Then select Accessibility from the list to the left & check if Photoshop Elements is added to the list with a check mark in front of it.

3. If Photoshop Elements is not a part of the list, please add it by unlocking the window first using the lock at the bottom left, then clicking the + icon & navigating to the Applications folder.

4. Also, grant permissions to Photoshop Elements under Full disk access located in the same list as Accessibility.

5. Once done, restart the Mac & check if it helps.

 

Regards,

Nikunj

That link you posted is pretty much useless-   It doesn't even answer the question asked in the post "Does Photoshop Elements 2022 work with macOS Monterey"?  

No, it does not work with macOS Monterey. It really is that simple.

Oh please. Other standalone editors update themselves for new OSes. I don't mind spending $100 every 5-6 years for a new PSE program, but two years? My 2020 is 64-bit and could easily be tweaked to run on Monterey. It's just about money for you guys now. You ruined a geat company.
