I use the laptop NOT connected to the internet.
photoshop elements 2021 and premier elements 2021
will these work fine offline?
are they on a disc or what?
anything else i should download?
how do i register them?
will premiere do 4k video editing.
i will get a windows 10 to use them as they wont be happy on my windows 7 !
You can buy a disk from retailer. You can buy a download from a retailer. My suggestion is that you buy a direct download from Adobe.com and register with Adobe. After that, there is no need to be connected via internet. The Elements products are fully functional without an internet connection.
One exception is that much of the working transitions and music files will need to be 'downloaded'. They are not required or part of the initial installation because some may not want to use the disk space for them. They can be 'batch' downloaded after installation.
Premiere Elements is fully functional with 4K footage. It is my normal workflow.
Remember there is a free trial. Try it with your camera's 4K on your computer. If you buy direct from Adobe there is also a full refund period of a week or two. Buy boxed discs or downloads from a retailer won't provide that.
Such good advice.
thanks very much
Is the download trial version, just link files or is it the whole software?
i can download with the chromebook and if it is the actual software (on trial) i can copy it to the windows 10 that does not connect to the internet.
Unfortunately, as I understand it, you don't download the program. You download an installer. This installer then gets the files it needs from Adobe and installs the program.
So unless I'm wrong, you will need to be connected to the internet to install the software.
You may do better by buying the disc version from Amazon
Note that I do NOT know if the Elements programs have a way to register by telephone
sadly the download files want to connect to the internet as Steve says
also it only downloads some of the files, i saw a tute that shows premiere has some effects that have to be downloaded afterwards.
will it work on our old windows 7 that connects to the internet?
i am typing this on a chromebook. can download but that is about all!
As far as I know, nothing that Adobe produces today will run on Win7 or Win8
-Win7 is dead https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-7-end-of-life-support-information
-Win8 is also no longer supported https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4580358/windows-8-1-update
As I said for a current operating system, I do not know if telephone activation is possible with the disc version
so i found an old desktop with windows 10 on it.
put the exe files on it and tried to install it.
it said there was no disc in the drive.
now i will give up.
i suspect the error message was the computer error rather than the adobe error.
how do i edit posts?
