Upcoming Changes to Photoshop and Lightroom OS Support for Windows and macOS

As we prepare for our next major releases of Photoshop, Lightroom Classic CC, Bridge, and Camera Raw, we wanted to give you a heads up on upcoming changes to our System Requirements.

To take advantage of the latest operating system features and technologies, the next major releases of Photoshop, Lightroom Classic CC, Bridge, and Camera Raw will not support Windows 8.1, Windows 10 v1511 and v1607, and macOS 10.11 (El Capitan).

Note: Windows 7 SP1 64-bit will continue to be supported, the exception being Lightroom CC which currently requires Windows 10 Version 1511 or later.

If you’re running Windows 8.1, Windows 10 v1511 and v1607 or macOS 10.11 (El Capitan), you can continue to run and install current and previous versions of Photoshop, Lightroom Classic CC, Bridge, and Camera Raw.

Our team hopes that by providing this information early that it will allow you to make migration plans now so you can take full advantage of future Photoshop & Lightroom innovations as soon as they are available.

The Creative Cloud Desktop, which manages application installation and activation, will continue to be supported on Windows 7 or later and macOS X v10.9 or later.
