I have PSE 2021 installed on a M1 Mac. The PSE itself runs fine, but the Elements Organizer does not. It is super laggy, even with just a few entries in the catalog. It also frequently crashes. I know it is technically not supported, but neither is PSE 2022 really, so I don't want to upgrade until/if PSE is available in native M1. Any ideas?
I am waiting for Elements to be NATIVELY supported in Apple M1 or M2 BEFORE I spend any more on Photoshop. I have two licenses ( 2016 and 2019 ). The 2019 declines to even install in MONTEREY, (my iMac’s OS which is fully up to date) which has been superseded by APPLE but I have not installed it yet. With 2019 not even installable on my iMAC with 24 gigs of RAM, I don’t think it a good idea to allow any more spending with Adobe for photoshop elements if you have a Mac with Intel chip. ( Or any Apple Mac with M1 or M2 Chips )
I totally agree. I don't plan to upgrade until/if PSE is ever natively supported on M1. But... I would like to continue to use 2021 PSE as it works okay, but I would really like to find a solution for my 2021 Organizer issues. Thanks for posting.
