Hi, I want to install and run Photoshop Elements. I have a 2012 imac running Catalina macOS v10.15.7. Can you please advise on which version of Photoshop elements I need and where I can source it from?

I've tried to install the Elements 2023 version but its not compatable (requires macOS 11). 

I believe 2020 is compatible, but I'm not sure and I don't know where to source it from. Please help.

Just to note, Adobe release a new version and completely stop selling it. There are no online ways to buy an old version, no approved clearance sellers, nothing. You take a big risk trying to buy old versions. Yes, once a system is out of Apple's support it is abandoned and sourcing software becomes a big issue.

Out of curiosity, do bricks and mortar stores selling software still exist elsewhere in the world?
They're long gone in Australia.

Interesting. Wonder how they make money. Can't be many people still buying software that way.
