Hi,

I have been using Photoshop Elements 11 on a 2015 Macbook with OS 10 Yosemite (I didn't update the OS system because I was afraid this would slow it down). However I've now finally got an all new Macbook Pro with OS Big Sur.

When I set up the new Mac with Migration Assistant it transferred the PSE 11 to the Applications folder in the new one. However I'm fully aware that I should also update the PSE to PSE 2021 and am quite happy to do this.

My question is, what is the best way to do this? Should I delete the PSE 11, and do a clean install of PSE 2021? Or can I upgrade from within PSE 11? If I do a complete clean install, how do I guarantee that all my catalog etc will transfer into the new program?

Many thanks for any orientation,

Best

Nick Rider

Hi Nick, 

 

Thanks for getting in touch.

 

We'd recommend that you install Photoshop Elements 2021 on your MacBook Pro and then restore the older catalog from Photoshop Elements 11.

 

To do so, please take a backup of your Photoshop Elements 11 catalog and then import that backup into Photoshop Elements 2021. The process of backing up and restoring the catalog is explained in detail in this article https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop-elements/kb/backup-restore-move-catalog-photoshop.html

Let us know how it goes. 

 

Thanks,

Akash
