Has anyone upgraded their Mac to the new OS Monterey? If so how are Photoshop and Lightroom working? Any problems?

No problems installing on my M1 Mac Mini. I did have issues installing the driver for my Canon Pro 300 Printer. I had to turn over the computer to Canon techs who were able to install it.

I upgraded both my M1 MacBook Pro and my Intel MacBook Pro, and both are working without issue. Big Sur broke one of my favorite utility programs, but that doesn't affect my photo editing.

I have and the only issue I had was in photoshop I had to disable “Use Graphics Card” under performance in Photoshop Preferences. I suppose that Adobe will address that bug in an update. Everything else seems to work faster under Monterey.

All is well with this upgrade.

I use an iMac under Big Sur OS. Decided to download Monterey a couple of nights ago (it was a 5 hour download). Came in the next morning to discover that it hadn’t worked, there was no file in Downloads, and no sign of what had gone wrong. Need to check if I had sufficient space on my HDD? Puzzled!

Did you go through the About My Mac software update button?

I've updated both a 2017 27" iMac desktop and a 2020 MacBook Pro with no issues on either machine - using LR & PS regularly.

I'll probably upgrade to Monterey at around version 12.3 or so. Big Sur 11.6.1 is very stable, so I will wait until a few weeks after the first new year point release.

I have had issues installing plugins to Photoshop and to a lessor degree Lightroom. However, I have not had any problems with Photoshop or Lightroom.

Yes. Further to my reply I started a chat session with Apple and the guy was most helpful. He was a star! I have now updated my iMac to Monterey!

One thing to try is to run the Intel version of Photoshop or Lightroom by choosing it in the Get Info box. Go to Applications, highlight the App, right-click or Control-click on it, choose Get Info, then press Command-I, and look for the check box that says, "Open using Rosetta."

A site you might want to check for compatibility of apps and plug-ins: https://isapplesiliconready.com

No problem with software. Some people are having problems with their WD hard drives not showing up. Apparently WD is working on this. My hard drives did not show up and eventually I discovered that my editing pad software was not updated and that stopped my hard drives from showing up. When I unplugged the editing pad the hard drives popped up.
