I am unable to activate Photoshop CS3. Minutes ago I was advised by Adobe Support technician that there is a way to activate it. I was directed to post my issue, after which, I was told an expert would reply and provide the details for activating this program. As I browse thru community the only replies to this question is that it is not possible. I do not use Photoshop for professional purposes, just occaissionally for personal use and have enjoyed it. My viewpoint is that I paid for what was described as a perpetual license and now Adobe is not allowing me to use program. How do I activate this program... somthing to do with reverting backwards....?

That support person is completely wrong >only replies to this question is that it is not possible That is correct... it is NOT possible The CS3 (and earlier) activation server has been retired... there is NO WAY to activate CS3 At one time Adobe provided a special version that did not require the activation server, but that version is no longer available Your only option for an Adobe product that does not require a subscription is Photoshop Elements ELEMENTS 2021 FAMILY
