Can I use my Adobe apps in macOS Catalina 10.15?
We've updated most current apps to 64-bit architecture. The following versions work in Catalina, but have these known issues.
|Adobe app||Version(s) compatible with Catalina|
|Adobe Creative Cloud apps||2020|
|Acrobat Pro & Standard DC||2019 (subscription or non-subscription)|
|Adobe Acrobat Pro & Standard 2017||2017|
|Adobe Digital Editions||4.5|
|Adobe Photoshop Elements||2020|
|Adobe Premiere Elements||2020|
Most older Adobe apps were created using 32-bit architecture and do not work in Catalina. We have no plans to update apps that we no longer support or develop. The following table lists some common 32-bit Adobe apps that are not compatible with Catalina. (It is not a comprehensive list of all older 32-bit Adobe apps.)
|Adobe Product||Status and alternatives|
|Creative Cloud apps – 2018 release and earlier||No updates planned. We recommend that you upgrade to the latest release of Creative Cloud apps.|
|Captivate||Update scheduled end of 2019|
|Creative Suite apps||No updates planned. We recommend that you upgrade to Creative Cloud.|
|Fuse||No updates planned. Find free characters on Mixamo.|
|Presenter Video Express||No updates planned. We recommend moving to Adobe Captivate.|
|SpeedGrade||No updates planned. Certain features have been integrated into Premiere Pro, which is 64-bit compliant.|
Uninstall 32-bit apps before upgrading to Catalina
Before you upgrade to Catalina, we recommend that you uninstall your 32-bit Adobe apps. Older uninstallers are also 32-bit apps and don't work in Catalina.
If you already upgraded to Catalina, you can use the Creative Cloud Cleaner tool to uninstall older versions of Creative Cloud apps.
If you've kept Acrobat DC or Creative Cloud apps up to date, they are already 64-bit compliant.
You can update your apps using the Creative Cloud desktop app. See how to update your apps to the latest versions.

There are some considerations before you get and load more into the drive of your Mac.
How large are those programs? What is their load on the CPU and GPU? How full is the
capacity of the storage drive now? Before you add stuff, these are potential issues.
Could be you may put too much at stake; I suggest you research possible use of these
additional applications on an external drive, where they won't load internal hard drive?
This idea may require due consideration and an upgrade to enable use of external as
repository for additional applications should the internal storage be too small.
External storage with fast data connection (external should have power supply) may

be an answer. For some tasks, a more sturdy macbook/pro or desktop mac is best.
Much has been unsaid, but the storage/SSD seems small for those plus macOS apps.
And there should also be some free work-space for virtual memory on even an SSD.
Hardware consideration before new or additional software, & means to use it are first.
