How do you revert to a version of Photoshop lower than 21.2.4 now?

Hi! Photoshop has been lagging a lot for me since I updated. When I'm drawing with the brush tool I'm fine, but as soon as I change the color, and moreso when I switch to a different window, I have to pause for 1-2 minutes for the beachball to finish loading before I can continue.

I wanted to ask if it's possible to update to an even older version, because so far when I click on 'Other versions,' these 2 are my only choices. I indicated 'now' because on past posts about this topic, I saw much longer lists of previous versions for them.

Hey Tim,

 

Try here for additional access to CC 2019, 2018, 2017, etc:

 

Adobe Creative Cloud Direct Download Links

 

(However keep in mind what Conrad said that Adobe will only officially support the current and previous major release, which roll forward over time.)

You’re right, it used to be possible to install any CC version. However, in 2019 the policy changed. The current policy is that you can install the current and previous major versions using the Creative Cloud desktop app, but no further back. You might be able to locate an older installer using the Direct Download Links section in the right sidebar when you click the first link above.
