I live in an area without high speed Internet. I have been using cs5 for years and would like to upgrade. I was recently told that if I downloaded photoshop it could be used without internet. So I purchased CC. I just cancelled it because it would not work without internet. Why is this not doable?
Photoshop CC requires Internet access to download, update/upgrade and verify your subscription for a few seconds every 30 days. However, you do not need continuous Internet to use the desktop software. But without Internet you also have no access to the related online services -- Adobe Fonts, Libraries, Creative Cloud storage, etc...
Photoshop Elements might be all you need. It's a light version of PS without all the bells & whistles. It's a single purchase. No subscription required.
I want the latest photoshop program. Do you have a link for instructions for how to install for off line? I see that a lot of people have had trouble with that. One person said he had someone from Adobe Lightroom into his PC to set it up. I don't understand why it has to be a hassle!
Beware of fake Adobe reps who may contact you privately offering to sell you software or take control of your computer. It's a scam, run away! Real Adobe staff will never reach out via Outlook, Yahoo, Gmail or Skype. ============= 3 Easy Ways to Identify Genuine Adobe Staff https://tinyurl.com/10791730
