I am an autodidact student studying graphic design and want to install and use Photoshop Creative Cloud on my current device. Will Photoshop run on a MacBook Air with the following specifications? I don't need to do very advanced projects since I'm a beginner and learning the program. I can't afford to buy a new laptop and creative cloud at the same time. Also wondering about InDesign and Illustrator. I read the minimun system requirements but found those articles unclear. I have the most recent version of Big Sur OS. Thanks.
If you have a creative cloud subscription some Creative cloud version of Photoshop may run, The latest version PS 2021 most likely will not run. Your Process 1.6GHz does not meet the 2Ghz requirement for windows. Adobe up the GPU requirement for PS 2021 the 6 year old Intel HD Graphics GPU is likely not supported.
For Older version like CC 2017 Adobe did not specify CPU clock speed for mac.
Thank you for your help! Do you know if there is a way to download the older 2017 version of Photoshop until I can save up for a new laptop? I haven't signed up for Creative Cloud yet, and I think if I do, the download will be the newest version. Not sure how to obtain an older one that would run.
To activate any creative cloud Photoshop version you need to have a subscription. Creative cloud versions of Photoshop is subscription software. It will do you no good to download and install any creative cloud version of Photoshop they will only work as a trial install for 7 days.
