how can i download photoshop without creative cloud?
Basically- you cannot!
Even if you can obtain a download file to install Ps, you will still need the CC Desktop App to Validate your subscription and Activate Photoshop.
Without the Desktop App - Ps will cease to work.
Photoshop is installed in your computer 'locally' it can operate (while Activated) without internet access.
You do not have to use the 'Cloud' for anything other than- Install and Activate Ps.
Why do you pose the question - is there some issue or misunderstanding?
To get Photoshop (the latest version inc Lightroom) you take out a subscription to the Photography Plan - it costs around $10 a month. You download the application to your computer and use it in the normal way (i.e. apart from downloading Photoshop you don't need to be online to use it). Adobe checks periodically that you're up-to-date with your subscription.
Cloud has slowed my computer to a crawl -- it seems to be launching multiple variants of igfxext that are using all my memory. Will Photoshop Elements run without it once installed?
Do you have Photoshop, if so which version and OS and how much RAM and spare disk capacity do you have?
I have 4 GB ram my G
I'm done for then LOL
5.3 GB free of 57.4 GB...
Your system is inadequate, even for Photoshop-ELEMENTS.
One site suggests this for Ps-Elements:
