To whom it concerns, due to motherboard issues, I have now lost the use of Photoshop CS, which was running on an older version of windows. Is there no way , without having to buy a new version, to get a copy of Photoshop CS to work with? I have an old version. I am 83 years old, I only use the program to work on a private few photos.
Photoshop CS was released on CD 20 years ago. You didn't say what version of Windows you have or what your computer specs are, but you've had a good run. You said you have the old version, and you can try to install it, but it is no longer available for sale.
I can't remember is CS needed activation, but the activation servers through CS4 were shut down years ago. If it does need activation, you won't be able to activate it.
