Hello,

I've recently purchased a license, but never really had interest in using the cloud, so I installed PS and Lightroom with CC and used the uninstaller online to get rid of CC. (Along with throwing the remaining Adobe Creative Cloud Experience in the bin.)
Now my question is: Will I be able to keep using PS and Lightroom without issues? I know it probably won't be able to update, but will it be able to verify the license etc. without issues?

Thanks in advance!

I think you have purchased the photographer plan with Lightroom and PhotoShop. The usage of the Creative Cloud is not mandatory, but you must have access to the internet to verify the validity of the license.

Yes.
I've installed the software with CC and then uninstalled CC.
I do have internet access, so if it will keep validating withing CC installed, great!

When you say CC, do you mean the Cloud Desktop app?

I‘ve seen no issues with running the software when the desktop app is uninstalled but I also do not see the point in uninstalling it. It’s how the frequent software updates and upgrades are delivered which is one of the main benefits of running Cloud software.

I also don't see any upside in removing CC Desktop App.  That's how I access older versions of Photoshop, etc, my Adobe fonts, my specialty brushes and other add-ons as well as my 20 GB of Creative Cloud Space.

It just create a ton of incredibly annoying background processes. Telling the program to stop running on startup doesn't stop it from doing just that, and there are some weird activity monitoring programs that go with it (IPC Broker). Bloatware imho.

Does it work? So why asking a question?

”The cloud” just provides additional services. If you do not want that, get rid of that. Or simply ignore that. Well at least Adobe fonts are usefull. Cloud space also, when you want exchanging data with other people.

Leave it, take it. it’s yours, it’s free...

For me who only want to have Photoshop it is very annoying to be forced to use Creative Cloud. It takes a lot of computer resouces and is a very cumbersome way to get the updates to Photoshop.

Same...Creative Cloud have a lot of issues and bugs... Every time a dialogue pops up that says "Adobe Creative Cloud, needed to resolve the problem, is missing or damaged. You can try to repair to fix the issue. If the problem persists, download and install the new copy from www.adobe.com/go/adobecreativecloudapp" and gives two options, 'quit' or 'repair'.  Before the installation i take all the time to cleand files and everything with Adobe Cleaner and nothing happens... same problem. So...if i can keep only Photoshop and pay my suscription, WHY i need to keep CC??
