I am helping out a newbe photographer in another state. My plan is to download the trial version of Elements so I am able to walk him thru the process. He has purchased the full version of Elements which I feel will more than suit his needs. I currently use Photoshop for my commercial work but I am not familiar with Elements. My questions are, 1) is the trial version a full version (I am not concerned with watermarks as I only need to see all the controls)? Will downloading and installing the trial in any way mess with my current Photoshop (vs 22.4.0)? I plan to delete Elements as soon as I get my friend up to speed. Thanks in advance, David
Your trial version will probably stop working at 30 days. The license allows use on two computers owned by the buyer. If it were me, I would 'borrow' the friend's serial number long enough to get him/her going. When done, logging out in the help menu releases use for the owner on their second computer.
The Elements version does not, in any way, interfere with the CC version. I have both and never had an issue. If you use Lightroom Classic, you can set it up to open image files in Elements or CC, as you wish. The 'trial' is the same as the paid version. In fact, the trial opens asking if you want to continue with the trial, or simply enter a valid serial number.
Elements programs are so popular, there is a near endless supply of excellant tutorials.
