Hey, I am planning to buy Adobe Photoshop. As I mentioned in the subject, will I be able to use my drawings that I will make in this program for commercial purposes (in my mobile game)? On the other hand, what happens after the date expiration? Can I still use the drawings for commercial purposes?
Hi, This is not legal advice, of course, but I think we can all safely say that all the original work you create, draw, capture from your own imagery belongs to you, even after the end of your subscription.
Otherwise there would be no artwork anywhere, as most of everything you see from advertizements, to magazine images, still images on TV, videogame assets go through Photoshop at one point or the other...
Perhaps the stress should be on the word 'original'. You need to look at the license conditions of stock images you incorperate for instance. Ideas can be coprighted if they happen to be too similar to an exisiting graphic. I just created this from scratch to make a point, but someone else owns the idea.

Hey thanks for the reply, what about using a trial version? Am I allowed to use the trial version for commercial purposes too?
I am not a lawyer, but the terms probably apply equally to trial and paid. It would just be weird if they said “your stuff isn’t yours” just because it was done in a trial version, when under normal use your stuff is always yours.
If you want to remove all doubt you would want to contact Adobe directly since this is just a user-to-user forum.
Be aware that the trial versions do not last a long time, and learning Photoshop to use it efficiently, and establish workflows, beter techniques takes time.
