No use for Creative Cloud

I have very little use of the Adobe services on my Mac. I only use Illustrator once a month for work, and Lightroom twice a year to touch up some of my photos. I already manage my files using iCloud, so I have no use for the cloud syncing (constantly paused), and I am not interested in updates or other Adobe solutions.

 

Furthermore, I noticed the following applications constantly running in the background:

- Adobe Content Synchronizer

- CCXProcess (AdobeICPBroker (AdobeCRDaemon))

- Creative Cloud Libraries Synchronizer

- Adobe Content Synchronizer Helper

- Adobe Desktop Service (Creative Cloud Helper, Adobe Crash Handler, Creative Cloud Helper, Adobe Crash Handler, Adobe Crash Handler... yes 3 times)

- plus the CC app launching at every start-up.

 

I do not tolerate such a waste of energy and memory. Before I consider cancelling my plan for alternatives that better match my needs, I dare to ask:

 

Is there a way to only use Illustrator and Lightroom when I decide to launch them, and nothing else ? Can you explain the purpose of each background program and why they are indispensable for Ai and Lr to work ?

you can ask adobe support for direct links if tou don't want to install the cc desktop app.

 

there are 3 ways to contact adobe; chat, phone and twitter:

chat:
use a browser that allows popups and cookies, and click here, https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?rghtup=autoOpen

p.s. if you're contacted by anyone (via email or private message), it's much more likely to be a scammer than an adobe representative. ie, double check for an employee badge if contacted in the forums and look for an adobe.com domain in the email address if you click reply to an email. then check again and be very suspicious. any other method of contacting (or offering to contact you) is almost certainly a scam, https://community.adobe.com/t5/using-the-community-discussions/staying-safe-in-the-adobe-support-com...
