Photoshop Elements Organizer and Editor will not open on my Macbook Pro 2013 (Cataline 10.15.7). The video shows me clicking on the application and it starts to open, but then never does.

Elements 2018 will not work on Catalina (or Big Sur). You require Elements 2020 or 2021.
Weird. I was able to use Elements for the past few days and did not update my computer. Any thoughts on how to find my photos that were store in the organizer? Since everything was stored on my external, I can't seem to find the folders. If if I install Elements 2020, will I have access to them?
I know nothing about Macs, but your computer may not meet the system requirements for Elements 2021. However, I believe it should work, even if some features may not. You can download a free trial of Elements 2021 to confirm for yourself. (Elements 2020 is no long available for purchase from Adobe.) If you install a new version of Elements you should be able to open your old catalog which will be updated when you install the program.
THANK YOU!! The trial version worked!
On a side note, I emailed Adobe directly and while they were very quick to respond, they did not mention the free trial and told me my ONLY option was to purchase the new PSE to recover my photos. 😞
