Hi I am very much the new 'Old' kid on the block here....I have been considering investing initially in Photoshop but have seen a few ads on the Mac site for their own version Adobe. However my query is still more or less the same.....I note that there are numerous pieces of software available for the Adobe as there is with Photoshop, so does all the software work on a stand lone basis, or does one have to have a basic set up before add on's can be attached and operated....
Trust this makes sense... any info would be helpful I am sure
I think I understand your question, but I'm not sure. Photoshop, and other Adobe applications, are installed from the Adobe cloud. But they are installed as "standalone" programs on your computer. After those Adobe applications are installed on your computer then it is possible to install add-ons that are offered from third-party vendors. My experience in the past is that "sometimes" when updates or upgrades are installed it can be a little tricky to move some of these third-party add-ons because "sometimes" they are installed in folders that don't get moved when the update or upgrade is installed, and it's necessary to move the folder manually. That has been my experience in a couple of instances, but I don't use a lot of third-party add-ons.
For Photography-That would be the PHOTOGRAPHY PLAN (20GB) Annual subscription- my (recommended) opinion. It has the best selection of software for Photography, for the smallest cost. ! Including ALL the Mobile apps for iPhones, iPads, Android devices! Only limitation is the 20GB storage (pay to increase)
