I am very confused. I just purchased PSE 19 in April. Am I correct that upgrading to Catalina will make my program obsolete?  That doesn't seem reasonable to only get 6 months use and then having a useless program. There won't be any update for newer purchasers?

PSE 2019 will not work in Catlina.

Don't upgrade to Catalina or upgrade to PSE 2020.

I can not believe they would sell me a program and then six months later expect me to pay that much again to keep it with no warning...just sorry...doesn’t work, pay us more to upgrade your almost new program. I had the prior version for YEARS before i updated this April and for what? A few months of use and now it’s useless. Not cool adobe!!!

I too only recently updated to PSE 19 - disappointing to say the least. There should be a cheaper upgrade price if being forced to move from such a recent version. Otherwise we have to choose between missing out the improvements to our Mac or keeping our PSE operational!

For that, you can look at Apple, not Adobe. Apple has dropped support for all 32 bit apps in Catalina. 

If you don't  upgrade to Catalina, you can keep using PSE 2019.

 

If you upgrade to Catalina, you'll have to pay to upgrade to PSE 2020.

Still no excuse. Apple has been saying for years this was coming. Where were the warnings when I bought this. Where were the emails or notifications from adobe. It’s just as business to sell technology that you know isn’t going to work in a few months. The one other program that was affected on my computer simply offered an update. Didn’t charge me again.

 

and fwiw...this is a screenshot for buying 2019 for Mac from adobe as of tonight...

Got a link? I cannot find that screenshot from 2019 anywhere on the Adobe website. I'm sure you're right and it's there (and poorly worded) but I cannot locate it right now.

Edit: Found it. Poorly worded and misleading, I agree.

 

The System Requirements on Adobe's website for 2019 say 10.12, 10.13, 10.14 only

But Adobe doesn't sell PSE 2019 any longer.  When Adobe was selling PSE 2019, existing Mac OS versions were supported.

You can still purchase it from adobe as the seller on amazon. And either way...it still says all versions and 64 bit.

Adobe is not the seller.  Read the description closely:

That's because when it was at the time it was released.

Is it on Amazon's site or the Adobe site where you read that?  Can you please post a link to that?

See. Requires 64 bit. And adobe like everyone else knew that this update was coming. They have made no secret that they were dropping 32 bit. But adobe made no effort to adapt the program that people just bought to allow a newly purchased program to continue working or offer a substitute. They also continued until just recently selling this product with no warning to users. No where on the system requirements Or product description did it say it wouldn’t work in a few months. I shouldn't  have to not update my computer to continue to use a product I bought just a few months ago. I have used older versions for years. This Isn’t some fringe operating system I’m choosing to use. I will always prioritize keeping my Mac up to date over giving another cent to a company that allowed me to spend money knowing my product would become obsolete in a few months with no warning.

My mistake was believing that this huge company would update this program as opposed to expecting me to spend $80 to keep my program or just not update my computer.

The screen capture you posted says that PSE 2019 is not compatible with Catalina.

I get that! But it didn’t say it wouldn’t be compatible when I purchased it! Do you not get that that is frustrating? You buy a program in May made for Mac and they *know* it won’t work in October but don’t tell you that. Just lost it as requiring 64 bit. I’m not arguing that it won’t work. I’m arguing that they sold it anyway without warning users that they may want to wait until the 2020 version came out and give the purchase that choice instead of taking my money For this version and expecting me to lay agin in five months.

If you knew that it was coming, why didn't you wait to purchase the version of PSE that was compatible with Catalina?

If the website says 64 bit it should be safe to assume it wouldn’t be affected by the discontinuation of 32 bit support.
