Photoshop/Lightroom: How do I change the language to something other than Spanish?

Help required please.  I live in Spain but when I am trying to install the system keeps defaulting to Spanish.  Whilst I am learning the language, it is frustrating to have only Spanish.  I have an existing monthly subscription running and am anxious to get the Photoshop elements back on this new Mac

With 'the system' do you mean the Mac itself, or Photoshop Elements? Photoshop Elements is not part of the monthly subscription, or do you mean the big brother Photoshop?

If you mean Photoshop, then in the CC App (in your menu bar) you can set the App language. See here how to install Photoshop in anothef language: http://www.johanfoto.com/2014/12/phot...

Hi Johan

I mean I need to download Photoshop and Lightshop but it keep switching to Spanish from the Adobe creative Could app thing.  When I click install, bugger all happens

Did you check the link I gave you? I run my system in English, but I can install all kinds of language versions of Photoshop this way.

Lightroom is even easier, because all languages are built-in already. Go to the Lightroom preferences, General tab and select the language you want to use. Restart Lightroom and you're done.

No idea about Lightshop however. :)

Gary, as Johan stated, Lightroom Classic installs all the languages and you control the language from Lightroom's preferences. This is different than Photoshop. Photoshop gets it's language setting from the Creative Cloud desktop app. This document should help: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/change-install-language.html
