I don't need the Creative Cloud nonsense, I simply need a copy of Photoshop and Illustrator. As I am out of work right now due to Covid and can no longer afford the monthly subscription (i've paid more in the subscriptions than I should ever have had). I don't need all the useless features that the Creative Cloud says it provides. i don't care about updates or new "features" (all those tend to do is ruin my workspace and move things around uneccesarily). I need to know where/how to just get a one-time buy copy of photoshop and illustrator since I don't know how long i'll be out of work (but i still need to work on my portfolio). I don't care if its old or outdated. I just need access to the software without having to pay out the wazoo for it on a monthly basis. If not, is there a way I can bundle Illustrator and Photoshop? Any help or advice is much appreciated.
Sorry but that option is not possible. Adobe does not sell perpetual licences any more. For Photoshop however you can look at Photoshop Elements which comes with a one time license, but it is not fully featured like Photoshop
There are no legal supplies of old versions. Warning, scammers may contact you privately pretending to be Adobe staff pretending to have legal product. These scammers want your Adobe info, credit cards, your money and control of your computer, please take care.
You can't buy Photoshop CC or Illustrator. That ship sailed long ago when Adobe stopped making & selling Creative Suite. Creative Suite is not legally sold by any vendor, retailer or country. Be very skeptical of so-called used software offered from auction sites & private parties. The majority are bogus and/or infected with malware. Don't put yourself & your computer at risk.
