How do I stop photoshop from saving my photos in the cloud? 

 

Also, when i choose "file>open i get a dialog box that wants to open up files in the cloud, and i have to click another button that says "on your computer" in order to access files. How do i stop that?  I just want to be able to open files on my computer. I do NOT want to use the cloud.  

I am setting up a brand new computer now and have to get through this before i can start using the computer! Help!!

You first click the "on my computer" button for the standard open dialog. Then select a directory and open a file. When the file opens in Photoshop, you can close it and you should get the standard open dialog every time, unless you decide to click on the "Open Cloud Documents" button.

 

Now what are Cloud Documents for? You'll notice they are saved with the .psdc extention usually for working across different platforms and especially Photoshop for the iPad. "Cloud" in this case refers to Adobe's Servers. In fact whenever you hear the "Cloud" or "Cloud-based" buzzwords, it's short for "storing your stuff on someone else's computers." You'll know you are working with a Cloud document because it has a cloud icon in the document tab before the file name. You can only use psdc for the Cloud, not any other file format.

 

If you ever get Photoshop's iPad edition, that's where you will transfer work between your Desktop Photoshop and iPad Photoshop.

 

Only Photoshop CC 2020 has this Cloud feature so it's a safe guess that's the version you are using.

Also when you save a document for the first time, you will see this dialog:

 

If you want your computer to be the default, checkmark "Don't Show Again" and click the "Save on your Computer" button, so you don't keep getting that screen.

Look for the "On your computer" button in the Cloud dialog box. Click on it.

Then when you save a file, the regular Save dialog will come up and stay there until you click the "Cloud Document" button.
