Macbook Air M1 with 16GB Ram suitable for most photo editing software?

I am planning on replacing my 2011 MBP with 8gb Ram. It has a very old standalone version of PS6 installed on it. I am going to ditch that as well (don't have the licensing info anymore anyway).

I plan on getting new photo editing software, either subscription based Adobe or trying something totally different.

The main question I have is will a 16GB MB Air M1 be sufficient? Or do I need to upgrade to MBP? All still photography, raw CR2 files, no videos. At least not as of now.

Thanks
