My new Mac Catalina has just been uploaded. Now my photoshop elements 8 won't work. Can somebody please help me. I need to upload photoshop elements again. I'm not very savvy at all. Marji
Sorry to tell you that version of Ps Elements will not install or run on OS X Catalina.
As stated above you will need a new version of PS Elements. To be clear you need Ps Elements 2020.
But won't that mean I have a monthly charge? Mine has been free.
Creative Cloud is by subscription (month-to-month or annual). Among other things, your subscription entitles you to free upgrades for as long as you remain a paid member.
Photoshop Elements is a stand-alone, light version aimed at amateurs and hobbyists. PSE doesn't have all the bells & whistles of pro-level PS CC or the steep learning curve. And it's a one-time purchase which means you'll need to buy an upgrade in a few years.
For some reason, In Error, someone moved a reply to you and placed it in a separate forum.
I moved and Merged it back into your original conversation.
Not sure how Windows version 8 came into the conversation as you clearly stated you have a Mac with Catalina as the OS X version.
No need to subscribe to any plan. Just buy Ps Elements 2020 and install that on your mnew Mac.
Also this whole topic should be in the Ps Elements forum. I am moving it over there.
