    Not sure where to ask this...

    Im getting a new Air in a few days. I have a 2011 Macbook Pro. I have some software with the disc that i don't believe will work on the new computer.

    Is it possible to sell that? Its Photoshop Elements and Microsoft Office 2008.

    Im not soliciting here, just asking if its possible and if these things are sellable?

    Yes, it's possible. However, Office 2008 should work on your new Air since it still works ok with El Capitan. I don't know about Photoshop Elements.

    Thats exciting!! I was trying to go though threads here and i read that it does not work on El Captain. I guess I'll try it out when I get my computer. I bought a superdrive as well.

    I was just going to be satisfied with Pages and Numbers.

    Im not to terribly worried about Elements, i don't use it much.

    I use Photoshop Elements 11 with El Capitan. No problems. Haven't upgraded PE to current version (13 or 14).

    PSE 6 might be a bit old since it runs on Rosetta?

    I probably won't even try to install Elements. It was a bit wonky when I was running Maverick.

    Up, up in my studio, studio
    I know of two PS Elements replacement products that work well, are available for Mac and are either inexpensive or free: Pixelmator (on the App Store) and GIMP (which is a free, open source application for Windows, OS X and Linux). I've used both, and both are great for touchups, adjusting color, resizing, layering/masking etc. Each has more advanced manipulation tools as well.

    Thank you! I just needed something simple. Elements even was a lot. I tried to install office 2008 and it stays there is not software on the disc.

    So thats 3 software disc that won't work. No regrets
