I just upgraded to Mac OS Monterey and Photoshop Elements 2021. I now have Adobe Creative Cloud installed. I don't remember if the install process required this. I don't use any other Adobe apps, and never will.

 

I thought Photoshop Elements for Mac isn't on Creative Cloud. I don't want Creative Cloud. If I have to have it to use Photoshop Elements 2021, I will find an alternative and abandon Adobe altogether. I'm not going to allow Adobe to infest my computer with apps and processes for things I'll never use.

 

Do I have to have Adobe Creative Cloud installed to use Photoshop Elements 2021?

 

When I tried to run "Uninstall Adobe Creative Cloud" I got a pop up that said I couldn't do so because I have Creative Cloud applications installed on my Mac that require it. I don't think I have anything other than Photoshop Elements 2021 on my Mac, though maybe the Photoshop Elements installer put installed something else.
