With the release of macOS 10.15 Catalina, you’re probably wondering if your Adobe software will work in this macOS upgrade.
Here’s the short version: Many companies are cautioning users to delay the upgrade to macOS 10.15 Catalina. If you decide to go ahead, you’ll want to run the most current version of Creative Cloud applications on the new system. Because of changes and tighter requirements by both Apple and Adobe, a much smaller number of old applications are going to run in macOS 10.15 Catalina than in past upgrades. If you can’t or don’t want to upgrade your applications to current versions, you should delay upgrading to Catalina.
Of particular concern: Even if you are running the latest version of Photoshop CC 2019 (version 20.0.6), the list of problems discovered with Photoshop has grown since Catalina was released (details later in this article).
With every macOS upgrade, full information about compatibility is typically not available on the day the new system is released or even shortly after. More information emerges over time, as Apple, Adobe, and other software developers test with the final public release and produce updates with fixes. I’ll update this article as new information comes out.

Are your prints too dark, or does your published work appear darker (or lighter) than expected? If so, you might benefit from making simple adjustments to your editing environment.
In my article on CreativePro.com, I explain how the way you perceive the brightness of your work depends on a combination of application settings, operating system settings, and display settings. To read the article click the link below:
Where do Adobe Creative Cloud desktop and mobile applications save your work? Does it surprise you to know that there are at least five possible answers to that question? This can cause a lot of confusion, especially for beginners.
In my article on CreativePro.com, I take a closer look at the different forms of Creative Cloud storage, and the different ways that desktop and mobile applications use them.
Only recently have I become aware of the range of wildlife that lives in and migrates through pockets of nature that exist just a short walk from many of our homes. Images of local wild birds are the subject of Wild in North Seattle, an exhibition of my photographs at Herkimer Coffee in Seattle, USA. See herons, eagles, and more. All of the photographs were taken within 5 miles of the venue. You can view this show until December 30, 2018.
