2011 IMac help on OS upgrade ++

  FP 17:10 26 Jun 2020

Since 2012 I've enjoyed my 27" iMac but now I want to run the latest photoshop and Adobe Camera Raw. It also drops the mail servers requiring new/refreshing log-ins to the mail providers regularly. Still running Sierra 10.12.6 8Gb Ram 1Tb hard drive

Any ideas please? Do I upgrade OS? will it run newer software? I'd be sad to change this machine, my newer iMac is slow and troublesome in comparison.

I no longer get offers to upgrade the OS from Apple.

Many thanks FP Corner

It sounds like we have the same iMac, I am running 10.15 Catalina with no problems. You may need to do an upgrade from Sierra to El Capitan before going to Catalina click here

If you do upgrade be aware that Catalina does not run 32bit programmes.
