Photoshop: I have updates for 2 versions. Should I update both?

Adobe wants me to update PS 19 and 20. Why would I want to update 19?

You wouldn’t. Uninstall it.

I get it that it's a security update, but why do I even have two versions of PS?

Because if you update newest one and the update goes badly, you can still use the old version until new one gets fixed. Rare, but stuff happens.

I like what you said, really. My problem is I have been using the application since the days of floppy disks, then smaller ones, then CDs now the cloud. I could do use a previous version, but I must be missing something. You mean a user can 'go back'? Since I mentioned 'floppy' that gives one a clue as to my age and I don't think the same way I did in the old 'daze'. I'm just totally bummed out, PS is broken, just look at all the issues that pop up, there is too much going on, but when  [copy] [paste] doesn't work. . . . come on. Good Luck!

It could be a coin toss. I did not know anything about a 'security' update, but as I read through this forum I see lots of things that people are having issues with. Personally speaking, I am not happy about these latest versions. I have had my Windows laptop checked out twice now and things in PS like [copy [paste] doesn't work. When I move one layer around, the ones below 'highlight' and I have to hide then unhide them to see how the image really looks. I have also worked with Adobe Tech Support and they have made changes three times and it is still  B R O K E N ! 


I have discovered a lot by reading what people are saying in this forum, but it sure looks like Adobe is not paying attention, so be careful.

Good Luck!

Howdy Mike,

There's no problem having multiple versions of Photoshop installed.  Several years ago we made a change to the installers so that it didn't erase older installations on update, since some users want to maintain multiple versions for a number of different reasons.  If you're not such a user or if the setup doesn't work for you, just update the latest version and uninstall the old one.

Hope that helps,
David
