Adobe Photoshop Elements 4 box

Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 is the fourth major version of the Photoshop Elements application for consumers, released for Microsoft Windows and Macintosh. It was the first version to support Mac OS X. It was also available in a bundle with Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0 in 2005.

End of supportEdit

On December 15, 2012, activation servers for Adobe Creative Suite 2 applications were shut down, which also affected Photoshop Elements 4.0 and 5.0. Registered users who wished to continue using Photoshop Elements 4.0 after that date could download a new installer from Adobe with a new serial number that could be activated without contacting a server.[1] Some users and websites had interpreted that Adobe was giving CS2 applications away for free, but Adobe clarified that these were only for registered users and began requiring a valid existing serial number to access downloads.[2][3] In May 2019, Adobe stopped providing the downloads entirely.[4]
