Thank you, Britt. I may not know what works until I try it.

I know PSD 6 still works on El Capitan Mac OS, but I don't know about the latest Sierra.

I have not been fond of my Adobe CC experience. Thia may be because of the need to go through a government purchase to a third party. not dealing directly with Adobe,Plus they keep changing th APIs fo my third party plugin are always breaking, so I need to keep older versions of the Suite on hand. So my small SSD main drive is filling up fast.

I DID get the latest Office to install (have been using it for years on my Macs) - but PAY ATTENTION when you buy it. There are multiple versions out there. One is a year-long subscription and seemed to be the lowest price. I don't want an annual fee. There's also the "key" version that you download and install; this is the one I have. Sometime between now and the end of the year I'll get the system up and running, deadlines permitting.

The part I'm not so sure about is whether I can use my Photoshop CS3 on the new iMac. A friend told me that older versions of PS work on newer Macs if you upgrade something. . . Flash, maybe? I'll check. I do have Photoshop CS5 in a box that I never opened. Might be time to try that one.

As for storage, I understand you get some free cloud storage with Apple when you buy a new computer - and the prices for adding more storage didn't seem that bad. Thought I might put copies of image files there are extra safekeeping. Anybody doing that?
