  • Read the reviews and was somewhat hesitant to load Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018. But went ahead with it anyway. Wouldn't install. So after a lot of looking around the web, I finally downloaded an updated OS for my Macbook Air, High Sierra. Took about an hour, but finally finished. Then I was able to finish the install of Adobe Photoshop.
  • Adobe recommends that customers using older versions of Photoshop Elements or Premiere Elements (versions 2019 or earlier) DO NOT upgrade to macOS 10.15 Catalina. If you have installed the Elements products and have not upgraded to macOS 10.15 Catalina, the Elements products will function normally.

Adobe strongly recommends that customers update to the Photoshop CC 2017 release prior to updating to macOS 10.13 (High Sierra). Older versions of Photoshop were not designed, nor extensively tested to run on macOS High Sierra. Additionally, we strongly recommend that customers do their own testing on a non-production partition to ensure that new operating systems work with their current hardware and drivers (printing, etc). You may wish to remain on an older version of the OS that is compatible with prior versions of our software.
