I can't see any recent posts about this. Just wondered if anyone had updated to Mac OS Big Sur and could confirm whether PSE 2020 still works?
I can see from the publicity blurb that PSE 2021 is compatible (but then they would want people to upgrade - again!), but no reference on their site to the 2020 version compatability.
Hi Thanks. Yes, I didnt find that page particularly helpful... they clearly want us to upgrade to the 2021 version so they don't actually say that 2020 is not compatible. It's annoying that something that was until very recently the most up to date version, is not supported. Beginning to question whether to keep shelling out money on upgrades for this product when they seem to be supported for so little time
Well, in an other Elements forum, I ran a poll about which platform was used by Elements users: as reported in external surveys, it appeared that 80% did use Windows vs 20% Macs (worldwide, probably not true in your region and Adobe will never confirm). Not everything is bright in the Windows world either, for instance there was yesterday a discussion here about "which older PSE version can work on Win 10" which showed that unfortunately PSE2 (August 2002) will no longer work, whereas PSE6 (2008) is still working.
So, please forgive me to smile a little when Mac users are eager to "shell out money" (which most Win users can't afford) on Apple hardware and don't want to do that on software that Apple makes obsolete after one year.
I am all for keeping the updating and innovation for both platforms, but it seems that today the cost of maintenance and development is not "équitable" as we say here.
The problem, Michel, is that shelling out for Apple hardware is a one-off capital expense for most of us whereas shelling out to software companies for patches to keep up with Apple's free upgrades is a steady, revenue expense. Having funds for a capital expense does not mean one can afford to budget for continued re-purchase of more up to date product licemnces/applications.
That's your problem. Not mine with Windows.
