Photoshop

9 posts in this topic

I was looking around for a trial version of Photoshop for iMac and I can't find any downloads that do not require some kind of sign up process and creating an account. I also noticed that it seems you now have to pay monthly or yearly for it. Are you not able to just buy the program and be done with it anymore? Or do you know have to pay a fee every month or year for it?

Thanks for the links. Your 1st link is much help for sure. :) I may give them a call (as that is what it says to do) and see if I can get it for iMac. The 2nd link ends up taking me to the place I always ended up. The subscription download.  :( I will check out the 3rd link for programs. Some of them I know about but there are a few I have not heard about. :) 

What is it with the subscription stuff anyway? The internet used to be cool but it is getting lamer by the year. xD

They just want to take all your money they can get :D 

Subscription means they can make new versions paid.  It is not bad if wanting to have the newest versions.... as long you pay. But yes, it should be just an alternative.

It is installing now. But I think it is also the subscription version.

Yea, that was a subscription version. They must have removed the other because what I had to do to install was different then what was on the website. :( I did play with it for a few minutes and as good as it may be, I am not paying $19 dollars a month for it. I'll just do without. :(

Actually that helps a lot. I didn't know you could modify Gimp to act more like Photoshop. There are also some settings I didn't know existed like "Single Window Mode." :) That alone makes a major difference using Gimp. Gimp is great for being a free open source program but if you used Photoshop before using Gimp you have to relearn a few things because Gimp is a bit different although it does almost just as much as Photoshop. Gimp also does not run as smooth as Photoshop either but it gets the job done. ;)
