Making it part of the Mac - I realize some people are complaining because this version of Photoshop is the MAC App store version. There are some variations from Adobe's version which is not part of the Mac App store. I can live without those few features. The benefit of getting this from the App store is that I don't have to do any upgrading myself. I set it on automatic update and never think about it again. I also have had no bugs of any sort. I used to use first Photoshop and then Photoshop Elements straight from Adobe. But I get wooed away by the thirty buck pixelmator program. I only came back to this when I saw it in the app store. It is a great program and I use it every single day. I am so glad it is not fighting my Mac and that the app store takes care of everything. I also needn't concern myself with serial numbers, activation and all that other nonsense. I have gotten to the point that I much prefer buying apps from the app store and let my Mac handle the rest of it.

Review by ameritrash

so many bugs! so disappointed! - i am so disappointed that the app has some huge bugs! use the organizer while timemachine kicks off (which it does regularly) and the organizer app might get confused and start referencing the timemachine backup. the solution per the support forums? turn off timemachine. yet literally no other app has this problem, so why is this necessary? why is not prioritized to be fixed? its apparently been this way for over a year. and now i'm getting prompted to do my first backup, but every time it starts the application crashes. unbelievable! this time the support forums have no recommendations that work. also, you want to try running this in a virtual machine via VMWare Fuzion? you can only do that in safe mode since the software that integrates with the virtual OS from the host interferes with the app. one day i might use the photoshop part of this app, but i really wanted the library. also, this is a new Mac Mini that i just got a couple of weeks ago. how is such a large application get out into the wild in such a state? baffling.

Review by tommylinsley

Severely downgraded - I recently "upgraded" to Photoshop Elements 2020. I had previously used Photoshop Elements 11. The old version looked and operated a lot like Photoshop. This new Elements version is dumbed down to the point that I would be better off using an iPhone app instead. I don't know if Apple is to blame, or if Adobe is to blame. Just a sign of the times, I suppose.

Review by MrWes

Simple and East To Use - It doesn't have all the whistles and bells of the full version, but that's exactly why I bought this app instead of paying the Adobe subscription for the full version (also why it's called "Elements"). My needs are simple as I'm not a professional graphic artist. Just doing minor edits for work and my personal use. If your needs are similar then this app is perfect for you. It's silly to complain about it not having the same functionality of the full version. If that's what you need then buy the full version, othewise enjoy this very useful and easy to use app.

Review by Dmvara

OK, but has its quirks - It is a powerful tool, but why is it so hard to edit photos on the fly! Seriouly. Come on people. I mean, we live in a day and age of convenience and I cannot even drag and drop photos from my photos program into adobe. This should be a basic feature and it's not. Booohoo

Review by Matt is angry

Clunky and Featureless - This version of photoshop is frustrating to use. It wants to be the product with bright and fun menus but comes off as tacky and childish. Basic functions of photoshop are missing or you have to have a roundabout way of accomplishing something they solved in the mainline version. It works but you have to work twice as hard to accomplish anything. The developers need to stop thinking their client base needs to pay for an annual subscription or settle for a poorly designed clunky mess.

Review by Trash1001ee

horrible. - im just getting into photography, and was extremely happy to order this. after i paid i could not install the app, i went to customer service and they said they couldn’t refund me because i dont have an account… how can you make an account when the app will not install. So im at a complete loss, would not recommend this for anyone.
