Hi Adobe Teams,

 

I see you just recently released Photoshop & Premiere Elements version 2021.

 

Can you please confirm if this version will be supported on Apple Silicon / M1 based Mac computers ?

 

Or should we wait next year and edition 2022 if we plan to soon upgrade to these Macs ?

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

Nice to see that two months later and no one from Adobe has bothered to comment here.  There is a trial version which runs through Rosetta 2.  I suggest you download and try it.

 

I can tell you that the organizer part of Elements 2021 is awful.  Even with only 400 photos (jpgs mind you, not RAW), the scrolling is extremely laggy on a MacBook Air M1.  To the point of making it almost unusable. Scrolling from the top to the bottom of my grid of images causes stuttering and delays of anywhere from 5-30 seconds depending on how fast you try to scroll.  The editor (for photos, haven't tried video) seems to be ok but if you have tried the Lightroom version designed for Apple silicon there is no comparison in terms of speed, smoothness and overall polish. Without knowing for sure that there will be update to Elements 2021 for M1, it's a waste of money right now.  

 

Either wait for an annoucment of an update and purchase it then, live with the frustrating performance, get Lightroom or step away from the Adobe ecosystem all together.  There are many good choices out there.  Many have thrived thanks to Adobe's forced subscription service for 99% of their products.

 

Good Luck!
