MacOS Sierra

  • Question
  • Updated 1 year ago

Now that Apple has announced MacOS Sierra it's not too early to ask the obvious question: what, if any, versions of PSE work with MacOS Sierra?  It's an important question because I still haven't seen an answer to whether PSE 13 or 14 work correctly on the previous Mac operating system, OS X El Capitan (though there are reports that parts of the product don't work correctly).  The Adobe website continues to underwhelm with it's information on new releases of Apple software and it's products working or not.  Plus we know there were problems when OS X Yosemite (precursor to El Capitan) came out.

I would appreciate anyone who has a preview of MacOS Sierra posting what version of PSE they have and whether it works or not.

In addition, I have a 5K iMac.  That model is known to have particular problems with PSE that Adobe hasn't addressed, at least publicly, for almost 2 years.  So if you have information on PSE on that platform I would also appreciate that.  Right now I'm on PSE 13 and OS X Yosemite because I can't find out if it runs on later versions of the OS or if the major bugs on the 5K iMac have been fixed.

Anyone have an update on whether PSE 13 or 14 or 15 works correctly on MacOS Sierra, especially on the 5K iMac?

There is an issue with printing. I would suggest waiting for an update prior to updating to macOS Sierra at this time.

Thanks.  BTW, there is already a problem with printing on Macs, even on Yosemite.  First of all, you can't print from the Organizer; you have to do it from the Editor.  That's pretty bizarre considering that the Windows version does print from the Organizer.  Then when you do print from the Editor it puts each photo on a separate page (and right in the middle), no matter what size you print at.  No way to group as many photos as possible on one page (which is what the Windows version does).  That's obviously very wasteful and unnecessary.  It's another poor implementation on Mac that Adobe hasn't acknowledged or fixed.  Maybe it's fixed in PSE 14 or 15 but I'm not going to pay Adobe to find out.

Excellent point: I'm not going to pay Adobe to find out. So, Adobe, when will you voluntarily communicate with your present customers that the problems with Mac Sierra are fixed? Or that you don't intend to try?

I'm working with PSE 13 and Mac OS Sierra. It was all going swimmingly well until I wanted to check the names of my layers in a psd file in Finder. (I'm a scrapbooking geek and need the layers to give credit to the products I use!) Now, when I go into 'Get Info'... no layers are listed.... arrrrrgh! Apple say it's an Adobe issue and that they don't support PSE 13 anymore and Adobe say it's a Sierra issue... happy days... not!

Separate issue.

Please reference the new conversation here: Elements: Get Info doesn't show layer information in the finder
