Standalone Photoshop?

  • Updated 11 months ago
I live in a rural area of Alaska. We do not have sufficient bandwidth to support subscription software packages. I am learning how to use Photoshop at my university but I need to be able to use it at home. What does Adobe do to help people in my situation? Certainly I'm not alone! I don't want Elements, either, I want to use Photoshop. Help!

The software is installed and runs on your computer not over the network. There is some requirement that your subscription is verified over the internet. I don't know the time period but some else will. The hard part for you would be downloading everything. Maybe you could get to a better connection location, get everything downloaded and updated and then the subscription verifications shouldn't take much bandwidth. Hopefully, others will chime in with more ideas.

Once installed, other than to install updates, there is only a mimal requirment to contact the adobe licening centre roughtly once every 30 days to validate your licence.

Howdy LJ,

If you have enough connectivity to post a message like this, you'll have enough connectivity to keep your subscription verified.  As others have mentioned, you're going to want to download the apps with a good connection, but once you have them installed, the apps run locally.
