I had bought a Photoshop Elements 2018 few years ago for Windows at that time;

 

I recently bought a iMac and it has Big Sur. I am new to Macs.

I downloaded the mac version of PS Elements 2018 from my orders page and tried installing and it says the developer needs to update the install. 

 

What are my options to use my previously paid for PS Elements 2018 on my new iMac?

Unfortunately, Elements 2018 cannot be installed on Big Sur. That's an Apple thing for technical reasons. You'll have to pay to upgrade to the current version Elements 2021 See https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop-elements/kb/macos-big-sur-compatibility.html

You can always download the 30-day free trial of Adobe Photoshop Elements 2021 and give it a good run out on your Mac before commiting yourself to purchasing it  Download Photoshop Elements free trial When you're ready to purchase, as an existing Photoshop Elements user you'll be eligible for the upgrade pricing. And as it's a dual-platform license you'll be able to install it on your old Windows machine too (as long as it meets the system requirements).
