I AM SHOUTING! I am paying a lot to have a program that will not print. It crashes and stops working. Then I have to use another program. I don't have the time or the money to waste on a product I am not able to use.

Out of curiosity, have you tried printing to another device? (i.e. A "PDF Printer" such as pdfCreator, Microsoft XPS Printer, Adobe PDF Printer, etc.)

Since Adobe hasn't responded, I figured I would suggest that perhaps it could be a printer driver issue causing Photoshop CC to crash, and a re-install of the printer software may help.

This seems to be an issue that's happened to others as well:

I am having the same problem even though I downloaded a new printer driver and tried switching to another printer.

Try reloading Photoshop and also check that you graphics card is up to date. Mine corrected itself when I reloaded PS.

I can print if I import the photo into Lightroom but it crashes immediately upon print command. I have a new iMac with 10.9. It had been printing ok and I was just changing the print settings to premium glossy when it crashed and now crashes in spite of rebooting etc. I will try to reload PS.

1) Install the application updates
2) Install the OS updates
3) Update the printer driver from the printer maker's website

If those don't solve it, then it's probably another bug in the printer driver code and you'll have to work with the printer vendor to get it solved. (other than a bug in Photoshop CS5 (fixed in the first dot release), the majority of printing crashes are due to bugs in the printer drivers)
