Absolutely ridiculous what makes Adobe here again ...

What shoud that??????

You can not even install an older 2017 version (e.g., version 18.1.1) through the Creative Cloud ...

So I can not use this software with my license on Yosmite anymore?

Apple offers free upgrades to newer versions of the OS and only older machines cannot be upgraded past Yosemite. I have an early 2009 iMac (9 years old!) that isn't supported but both my 2011 iMac and MacBook Pro can run High Sierra.

My suggestion is to stay current with the operating system so you can get security updates and run current software.

I understand why Adobe doesn't support an Operating system that Apple isn't supporting, but are you saying that because the Creative Cloud doesn't allow for versions like the applications do, it won't install anything onto an older OS? I personally think it would be a kindness of Adobe to retain the ability to install older versions of CC (if technically feasible—that I don't know), if subscribers want to install their software on an older OS. The reason I'd prefer that approach is that affording a new computer may be beyond many if you think of the many millions of subscribers Adobe has.

If they haven't destroyed the older versions of CC that did run on Yosemite, maybe they can offer them somewhere on the web as a download for subscribers? It would be nice to hear from Adobe on this so we can understand why, or why not, this would be possible—or even that they are willing to consider it.

A user can still install older versions of CC apps.

Oh, that's good to know.   That means nothing should be preventing the OP from being able to install 2017, so long as finding the older versions isn't impossible. Security risks with unsupported software are real, but if people are willing, or need, to risk it, then it's good to know they aren't being blocked from doing so.

Thanks for informing me.

If running macOS 10.10 Yosemite, a user should be able to install and run any version between PS CS6 to the very first release of CC2017. System requirements are covered here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/sys.... There may be something else going on here. The person who made the post should reach out to Adobe support for installation assistance. It would also be worth trying to install a prior version (using the “older versions” option in Creative Cloud Desktop to see if CC2015 will install as expected.
