Photoshop is for everyone. You don't need to be a professional designer or a seasoned photographer to use the most popular photo editing program on the market. You just need a little practice, to take advantage of all the capabilities that this application is able to offer you. And if your problem is the money to buy a license, we tell you where to download Photoshop for free and legally
Alternatively to Photoshop, you can also choose to use other free photo editing software available online or search for the best photo editing applications for iOS or Android if you prefer to work on mobile devices. Although for the best results, you are likely to choose to work in front of a large monitor for photo editing.
Download your free trial
At this time, the best way to use Photoshop without paying anything is to sign up for the free trial and then cancel it before it ends. Adobe offers seven days of free access for the latest version of Photoshop.
Step 1: Navigate to the Adobe website where they offer the free trial of Adobe Photoshop CC. Check the Frequently Asked Questions for more information and select Start the free trial when you are ready to start
Step 2: The download should start automatically. This download will work with both MacOS and Windows 10 as long as you have enough GB of storage space for the application and its downloads.
Step 3: find the file Photoshop Installer.dmg and brelo. Adobe later download both the Photoshop program and the Creative Cloud desktop application on your computer, since this way you will know other Adobe apps in addition to Photoshop and thus increases the possibility of seducing you. If necessary, you should answer a series of quick questions and log in with an Adobe account, (or if necessary, create a new Creative Cloud membership).
Step 4: From this point you can use Photoshop for seven days, which begin the day you download the free trial version. Be sure to cancel the trial version and delete your Creative Cloud account if necessary to avoid having to pay.
Adobe makes it very difficult to sign up for an additional free trial after the first one, and keeps track of the downloads that have been made to your computer. If you completely remove Photoshop or use a different computer, and log in with a new Adobe account, you may be able to get another free trial version, but it doesn't always work.
The end of Photoshop CS2
Once, Photoshop CS2 (Creative Suite 2) was available for free download if you had purchased the previous version of Photoshop at some time in the past. Since many people looking for a free Photoshop application only want the options offered by CS2, this worked very well for many Photoshop users who did not want to use a subscription service or download new versions.
Unfortunately, now there are so many and so great limitations with this program that make it practically unfeasible for most users. These include:
- Adobe has disabled the activation servers for CS2 and Acrobat 7, due to problems with their age (both around 7 years). They are not compatible, nor are they nor will they be updated.
- The original serial number of a previous purchase is required to download and use CS2. This is no longer the case: now you can only use the specialized version of CS2 with a unique serial number provided by Adobe. Your original software is no longer supported.
- Windows 10 has shown many problems when trying to use Photoshop CS2 due to outdated compatibility. It is quite difficult to run the software on Windows.
- MacOS has not been compatible with CS2 since OS X 10.7 Mountain Lion, and current versions of MacOS can no longer run it.
Adobe has even removed a download of Photoshop CS2 from its website to end its support for downloading old versions like this. You can still find the download of CS2 in several other sites, but we do not recommend them: in the best case it will not work, and in the worst cause serious problems to your operating system, if it does not happen to you some malicious software with its corresponding viruses attached.
