  1. macOS 10.14 Mojave
MacOS Catalina is available for download as of today. Problem is, there are no less than 11 (eleven) 32bit Adobe Apps lurking on my system. Any thoughts? Has anyone braver than I discovered if LR and PS still works?

AAM is the old Adobe Application Manager. It's been replaced in current shipping products by the Creative Cloud app, but you might have old programs (Elements?) knocking around still. Setup and Uninstall are again for older products, maybe earlier versions of Lightroom. You probably want to uninstall those older apps before upgrading, as the uninstaller won't work.

Thanks Victoria. I've never had Elements. Only ever had the Photography Subscription. Uninstalling these "hidden" 32bit apps isn't that simple, although I do agree they shouldn't be there. What a pity Adobe hasn't bothered to find a way to do this during previous updates - instead of littering up everyone's system with crud.
 
Could have been Adobe Reader, earlier LR versions, all sorts.

When I checked my system earlier, it was not only reporting installed versions, but also archive copies stored on an external drive. After you've uninstalled the programs, you should be fine to delete any leftover files.

Frankly, I'm scared of deleting them because I've no idea what other system files might also exist. Who knows what side effects this could cause? Do Adobe have a script to clean up old unused hangovers?
 
Updated OS is a good opportunity to take stock. If you have as slow internet connection the download of Catalina will be a bigger issue.
 
Has anyone any insight to what the situation is with Epson printer drivers?

Just updated my MacbookPro to Catalina to do some testing. My main system is an iMac. No new printer drivers yet for Catalina, but they have just updated Epson Scan which was 32 bit. A note on their support website says they are working on various updates. As soon as I try some printing to my R3000, I will post an update.

Thanks, that's very helpful. I use a R3000 too, its a great printer and it would be good if we could use with Catalina.
 
I have upgraded my iMac to Catalina and it seems there are no problem with LR classic or PS CC

Tom

That’s good news...

I plan on doing my testing tomorrow from my Mac laptop, import NEF and RAF files, edit, round tripping to PS, and then printing from LR to my R3000.

I installed Catalina and with the exception of a ‘sign in to iCloud again’ issue, which I understand is quite common and was resolved with a call to Apple support, I have no problems - yet.

I don’t have any 32 bit applications as we’ve been told they wouldn’t continue to run on OSX for two (?) years. I was concerned about by Epson Scan with was 32bit, but that has been replaced by Epson Scan 2 which is 64bit. I tried it last night and it works fine, as does the Epson Perfection Photo V600.

I’ve played with the Sidecar feature which allows use of an iPad as a second monitor. I’m still working out how to easily get Lightroom to send an image to the iPad but I did manage to get a photo onto the iPad Pro and in develop mode was able to use the Apple Pencil to make edits and act like a Wacom Tablet (I’ve never used one, but the pencil and iPad seems to do the job I want it to). It appears pretty faultless, but it’s early days and any problems I’m having are probably user error.
