My husband has asked for Photoshop Elements 2023 for his Christmas present. I have found where it can be downloaded, but what I need is to buy it on CD to be able to give it to him as his present. I cannot wrap up a code! Is there any way in which I can buy this software on a proper CD, ideally also with a manual? Or will it work if I download it and burn it to CD myself - will it then run happily on his machine? He uses Windows 10, but I am using Windows 7. I would be very grateful for information and advice!
I'm afraid you can't buy a CD copy any more. But you should be able to a buy a boxed copy with a redemption code inside from a retailer. Nor do the boxes come with a printed manual. Everything is online.
Has your husband owned a prior version of the program? If so, you could purchase from Adobe at a discount but only for a download version.
Here is something that you might consider trying.
You can download Photoshop Elements 2023 from ProDesignTools. It is a genuine Adobe download and it's a free download. You could copy it to a USB stick or burn it to a DVD and wrap it up for Christmas.
You'll still need to purchase Elements 2023 from Adobe online in order to get the Serial #. The only problem might be that if you buy it under your Adobe account, your husband will need to use your account login to register the software. Maybe you could include a gift card for the purchase in the Christmas package. That way, he could buy it under his account and do the online installation and use the USB or DVD as a backup.
Thank you, Greg and Walter, for your quick responses. I also had a PM from a David Wilson, who I assume is one of the moderators, directing me to ask AdobeHelp.Care@outlook.com and I have sent them an e-mail. Fingers crossed!
OK, thanks. I had assumed that this forum would have been moderated, but obviously not!
The forum is moderated but not PMs.
Thanks, I'm learning. Presumably a moderator will, when they become aware that someone is scamming via PM, delete that person's account.
Yes, I've sent the name to the Admins who take care of this. David Wilson II has also been reported.
