Apologies for a very basic question. My son has just started a photography course and I am a first time Photoshop user.

If I purchase a subscription, can this be used both on his laptop and our home desktop providing that it is only being used on one machine at a time ?

Also is he able to work off line ? and is it possible to access cloud stored images when working on a school Mac ?

Howdy Alex,

Your Photoshop subscription is good to install the application on two machines (Win, Mac, or both) which you can use simultaneously.  The application is actually downloaded to your computer, so there's no problem working offline as long as you connect to the Internet periodically to renew your subscription.  Access to images stored on the cloud is merely a function of connectivity -- if your son can access the Internet and can download (large) files at school, then there should be no problem.  I would not, however, suggest trying to download a doc with 100 layers over wifi...8-)

Hope that helps,
David
