Downloaded a bunch of stock pictures for photoshop and they are for illustrator, which I did not know. How can I use them in photoshop? I downgraded my cloud subscription to only use photoshop as I never touched illustrator. Please advise, I have loads of them which I don't know how to use?
What file type (.extension) are the files you purchased?
If the files are native Illustrator files, you will find more than a few .AI to .PSD converters online.
Unfortuneately most Illustrator assets need Illustrator. There are two possibilities. Either you use one of Nancy_OShea 's indicated converters (Google ist your best friend) or you take a one month license of Illustrator or you need to find a friend converting the assets.
You can open AI and PDF files in Photoshop, but you won't be able to easily customize or edit the result.
