Hi,

Is your Photoshop up to date with the 21.0.2 update that came out last night?

ok so I just updated my photoshop on my mac to 18.0.1 which is the only available version when I go to acrobat reader to update my PS.  Sadly even after the update it is still giving me the program error.

Hi Bianca,
Version 18.0.1 should not be an option and sounds like a downgrade.  Do you have the Creative Cloud Desktop application installed?  If not, you can download the application from here: https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/creative-cloud-desktop-app-download.html

Once you have the Creative Cloud Desktop applicaiton installed, select the "Photography" tab in the left pane.  Then click on the "Photoshop" box.  Afterward you should see a "..." button on the top right corner of the window where you can install the latest or previous versions of Photoshop.  Here's our article with more details of updating your Photoshop.
