Adobe tells me my mac operating system is too old to download photoshop, even though I am paying for it through the Creative Cloud programme, has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know if there´s an older version of hotoshop available to download? Thanks

Since you have not indicated what your system specs are it has to be assumed that your machine is not meeting the requirements for the software.  If that is the case then there is not much you can do except try before you buy the next time.

Thanks for taking time to answer Ned, I was actually very rushed when I wrote this so of course didn't have time to mention my system, I am running snow leopard on an older mac, which actually means that my current system software cannot run the latest Photoshop CC, (yes it would have been advisable to check if my software was compatible first, thankyou for making this clear, but, as a fine artist rather than computer savvy graphic designer, I didn't check) this was something I just assumed would be made clearer by Adobe, when first ordering the available package. I'm sure I'm not the first person this has happened to.

Luckily I found another thread (similar to the one you've highlighted above, but not yours) which explained how after downloading the CREATIVE CLOUD APP, that you can actually search for OLDER versions of the software which are available to download, so all was solved in the end.
