Do older Adobe apps Photoshop CS6 & Illustrator CS6 work in Catalina?

Hi so on Mojave currently on my mac the two apps by Adobe (older versions) Photoshop CS6 & Illustrator CS6 work fine.

I wanted to know if they work in Catalina too (for those who have the beta version installed). I checked both are 64 bit apps but I'd like to know if they work OK on Catalina. Thanks!

Yes it is.

Go to System Report, look under Software for Applications.
There'll you'll see Adobe Photoshop CS6 where it does support 64bit.

AFAIK, the problem with CS6 Photoshop is the installer. The app is 64-bit but the installer is 32-bit.

If you are able to upgrade the os instead of doing a clean install. Photoshop will probably work fine, but if you have to install from scratch, you’re out of luck. I’m not going to install CS6 on my system anymore. I’ve moved to AffinityPhoto.
