Can my subscription be used on a tablet while traveling?

Thanks to COVID, all my travel plans for 2020 and 2021 were canceled. I have rebooked my trips into 2022 but that means I will be traveling around the world for more than 100 days during 2022.

 

Can I use my subscription to install and use Lightroom and Photoshop on the tablet while I am not home? I will never use two copies concurrently. I will be at sea with Holland America and will visit Nova Scotian, Newfoundland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Hungary, England, Scotland, Ireland, Hawaii, several South Pacific Islands, and Australia during my travels. I will take tens of thousands of photos using my Canon equipment and with many days at sea, using the time to develop images and delete bad ones will be a huge benefit.

 

I have been a PS user for over 26 years and am now retired (age 70 next year).

 

Thanks for your help.

By tablet, do you mean iPad? The iPad version does not count as one of the two activations. It's in addition.

Whether you are using an iPad tablet or a Windows-based tablet PC, this should be no problem.

 

That sounds like an amazing trip.

Thank you for your kind replies. I would be using PS and LR on a Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16. It is good to know I can use it when I travel.

I would not count on being able to use it with no or poor internet though. Being at sea may be an issue.

OUCH. It should run without internet if the software is on the machine, shouldn't it? I didn't know internet was required to run PS, just to keep it running with occasional check-ins, I thought. I know the subscription needs to be verified but is that continuously verified?

It would do me no good to drop $4K on a pen tablet from Wacom if I couldn't use PS and LR while at sea, away from WiFi.

THANK YOU! That definitely settles it for me. I will be in port periodically throughout my trips and can "check in" with Adobe every time we have WiFi. That won't be a 30 day problem at all. THANK YOU!

Don't they have reliable internet on those ships now? (I mean, they're like moving cities nowadays. I watched an amazing video once of a newer ship being constructed and commissioned. It was like watching a Death Star being made without the honking planet-killing weapon.)  xD

 

I hope you have a fun trip, @FatherJohnNC!

Yes, but they charge an arm and a legt for connectivity - like $1 a minute or more. I can get WiFi in most ports. (Maybe not Tango Tango but I had it in Chile and Argentina and even parts of rural Africa during prior trips.)
