This course is created for Photoshop CC users and was created using Photoshop CC 2022. If you have an older version of Photoshop, you will still benefit from much of this course. Things such as layers, adjustments, and general photo editing will be identical or similar. However, there will be some features that do not exist in your version, so those techniques will not apply to your software. If you have a specific question about software compatibility, please contact support for more information.
If you use Photoshop Elements (PSE), there will be parts of this course that will apply to that software. However, PSE is missing several key masking features, such as the automatic masking tools (Color Range, Select sky, Select subject, etc.), as well as Channels, full use of Smart Object functionality, and many more. If you are interested in moving towards an intermediate or advanced level of enhancing and editing your photos, I recommend upgrading to the full version of Photoshop CC. (For only $9.99/month you can get Lightroom, Lightroom Classic, and Photoshop).
