Will Photoshop Elements 12 work with Mac OS.15?
PSE 2020 is the only version optimized to work with Catalina. Some users report that older versions have some functionality if already installed at the time of making the Mac OS Upgrade. However older versions can never be un-installed and re-installed as they use 32 bit installers.
Thank-you. I have misplaced the serial # for PSE 12. I have my serial # for PSE 9 and I must have upgraded from 9 to 12 but I didn't register 12 - dumb me!
Can I upgrade to PSE 2020? Is it a one time cost without a monthly or yearly fee?
Full new versions of Photoshop Elements are sometimes cheaper than so-called upgrades. Adobe and Amazon frequently offer limited-time discounts for full new versions.
The added advantage of a full new version is that, when you need to reinstall, you do not need the prior version's serial number (which people often lose) in order to reinstall. You just need the 2020 serial number.
Any sugestions where to shop?
"Adobe and Amazon frequently offer limited-time discounts for full new versions."
You can get the upgrade price from any previous version. That includes PSE9 if you have the serial number.
... and if you haven't heard enough already 😊 I would recommend you buy the box set (from a reseller like Amazon) vs the download version when it goes on sale. The box set comes with a dual platform license and includes both installers (Mac & PC).
Thanks to all who have responded.
