Hi,

I downloaded Photoshop Elements 2021 to try it out (I am running Mac OS 10.14.6 Mojave), decided I'd like to buy it.

When I open the app it gives me the option to continue the free trial or 'Buy now'. This button takes me to a web page to purchase it, except it says I will be purchasing PSE 2022.

I can't find anywhere else on the Adobe website to buy PSE 2021, it only lets me buy the 2022 version.

Does anyone know why this happens or if I purchase it this way will I be able to actually run PSE 2021?

I don't want to accidentally buy software I can't actually use.

Thank you

Adobe no longer sells Elements 2021. Only Elements 2022.

 

Buying a license for 2022 will not allow you to run 2021. The serial numbers are completely separate.

 

You'll have to search reputable 3rd party reseller websites to try and find old stock of 2021 but that may be a difficult search. Most now only sell 2022.

 

Can you upgrade to Catalina so that your Mac can run 2022 or is your computer not compatible?

Thank you for your answer, I'm glad I didn't try to buy it without checking!

I will look into upgrading or finding another application to use instead of Elements.
