Installation notes

On Windows, Adobe Photoshop CC has the option to run either a 32-bit or a 64-bit version. On Macintosh, only a 64-bit version is available.

Photoshop will automatically install the 32-bit version of Photoshop CC if you are on a 32-bit Windows OS. Photoshop will install both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Photoshop on a 64-bit Windows OS.

Known issues

Adobe offers a free Creative Cloud Membership that includes a trial of all Adobe desktop software.

You can convert from a trial to a full version at any time by signing up for a full Creative Cloud membership or a single-app membership. When purchasing a membership subscription, you are required to be online and to log in with an Adobe ID to start using your full version.
