PSE 2021 and 2022 Constantly Crashing

At one time, PSE used to be my goto program.  After suffering through constant crashes with first 2021 and now 2022, I give up.  I cannot even open a single image without the program locking up.  I am running macOS Big Sur, Version 11.6 on an iMac (5k, 2017) with 3.8 GHz quad-core and 40 GB of memory.  I have deleted and reinstalled multiple times, but the crashing remains.  Today I had to restart the program 7 times just to get on image processed. Am I missing something here?  Has Adobe just turned to pure crud on this program or is there some known issue where it no longer works with apple computers?  I give up and am hoping someone can recommend an alternative program.  I used to recommend this to my photography students, but I can no longer recommend such crud.

Jag köpte Phothshop Element i januari 2021. När jaf örsöker uppgradera det laddar den bara ner till 6 %.

Jag har försökt att följa de instructioner jag fått i meddelandet, men hjälper inte.

Jag har använt Photoshop i 15 år utan problem, vad är det de skickar på mig. Kan fortfarande i nov inte komma in i det efersom det kommer upp ett nytt fönster att jag har en gratis uppdatering. men den stoppar ju vid 6 %

Dessverre kan det hende du må installere Windows 10 på nytt. Det kan være et installasjonsproblem med 11.

Good morning all.  After suffering through several days of Monterey (and the constant crashes of both Photoshop Elements 2021 and 2022), I made the decision to completely wipe my system (iMac 5k Retina, 27-inch, 2017 3.8 Ghz Intel with 40 GB).  I initially downgraded to Catelina (iOS 10.15) but discovered that Final Cut Pro X will not install on that earlier system.  I then upped to Big Sur (iOS 11.6) and both FCPx and PSE 2022 seem to be running without issue.  Granted, a full clean install and wiping the hard drive is a pretty drastic move, but nothing else seemed to be working.  I would, as a result of this painful exercise, strongly caution anyone using PSE 2021 or 2022 on a Mac to NOT install Monterey.  Not only is that OS just about the worst, most buggy system I have ever encountered, but it will not work with PSE.  Technical support staff from Adobe have directly confirmed with me that they are not focusing on creating a fix to patch 2021 into Monterey, but instead are working to get PSE 2022 working with Monterey.  I hope that this helps others!  Cheers all!!
