Download Adobe Photoshop Elements for Mac to consumer photo-editing software. There are plenty of Photoshop alternatives for Mac that you can download or use in-browser to create just the right images and graphics for your projects. And some of them are completely free! None of these are necessarily one-size-fits-all solutions.
CC stands for creative cloud! you basically download adobe photoshop cc 2018 from a site that had archived the direct adobe download links (not from the cc app), and then you switch out a file to make the free trial last forever.
I got a method for both mac and pc!
unfortunately, the 2019 versions of cc programs are currently (as of 2019.06) impossible to crack easily. the 2018 version is the most recent version you can get without having to download 3 other programs and/or use patches. however, if you’re interested in getting pre-activated cc 2019 programs, see this reddit post. I don’t have a need for the 2019 version so I can’t help you with that
installing photoshop cc 2018
edit 2020.05: you don’t need to download the creative cloud app first! installing just photoshop will get the job done.
if you’ve downloaded creative cloud, do NOT install photoshop directly from the creative cloud app. that installs the 2019 version. you don’t want that (the reason is explained here).
instead, go here https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2018-direct-download-links.html and download photoshop. if you have pc, check if your system is 32 or 64-bit, and download the correct version for your comp.
if your adblocker blocks the download link, it’s because prodesigntools is tryna make you go thru an ad site first lol. my adblocker detected it like this:
I’ve highlighted the url that will actually lead you to the download. copy that url (whatever url that may be, without the tradedoubler shit) and paste that into your browser, and photoshop should automatically download.
find the folder that you downloaded and unzip the folder (how to unzip .zip files). open the folder and click on Set-up.
when you open the app first the 1st time, it’ll prompt you to sign in using an adobe id. create one if you haven’t- it won’t harm you.
so now you have photoshop on your computer. you don’t have to replace the file to make the free trial last forever immediately! you can do it within the 7 free trial days or afterwards- it doesn’t matter.
to make the free trial last forever
regardless of whether or not your 7 day trial has ended or not, the following instructions should work.
FOR PC: download only 1 of these (and do Not change the file name):
- if you’re running 64-bit windows: mega or file.io (I uploaded these myself I promise they’re not viruses lol)
- I don’t have a copy for 32-bit windows users I’m sorry :( if you have a working amtlib.dll file for 32-bit windows, or you downloaded it before the link got taken down, let me know so I can reupload it!
FOR MAC: download only 1 of these (can’t guarantee them cos they’re not mine):
- this one (extract the amtlib.framework file) OR
- this one (extract the amtlib.framework file) OR
- this one (click on the file that says amtlib, download, and add .framework to the end of the file name when you save it to your comp, I’m guessing?)
whichever one you download is the file that you use to replace. keep it in a reference folder that you’ll be able to find easily.
make a copy of the amtlib.dll/amtlib.framework file that you just installed.
FOR PC:make sure you have administrative privileges to do these next steps
move the amtlib.dll file that you downloaded (not the copy of it) to your:
- C drive (C:) - you can find this in This PC (if you can’t find This PC)
- Program Files (or Program Files (x86); whichever one of them has the next subfolders)
- Adobe Photoshop CC 2018
and replace the existing file of the same name.
FOR MAC: ok disclaimer I don’t have a mac. kinda writing these instructions outta my ass but I hope you get the gist. if yall can’t move files then make sure you have administrative privileges to do so
- click the Finder icon in your dock
- Go menu > Applications
- right-click on the Photoshop CC 2018 app > Show Package Contents
- Contents > Framework
- move the amtlib.framework file that you downloaded (not the copy of it) in there to replace the existing file
go back to where you made a copy of the amtlib file and rename the copy back to its original name (remove the “ - Copy”)
then open photoshop again, and you shouldn’t have any problems!
READ ME: if the trial countdown still pops up even after you replaced the file, wait until the trial “expires” and see if photoshop can open again (do NOT send me an ask before the 7 days are up). multiple people have reported to me that they still could open photoshop after the 7 day trial period ended!
your system might say that you have program updates- but don’t update it
Free Photoshop For Mac
TO REITERATE: adobe had gotten rid of the amtlib.dll/amtlib.framework file entirely in cc 2019 (so photoshop v 20.0).
unfortunately, with this method, you can’t update to new versions of your programs.keep using your older version; there aren’t significant differences.
adobe genuine software integrity service
adobe might detect that your software isn’t genuine, lol. it’s an empty threat.
go to this site, scroll to the section titled “Remove Adobe Genuine Software Integrity Service”, and follow the instructions.
about other cc programs
I’ve been told a few times that the file FOR PC works with the 2018 (and earlier) versions of adobe premiere, lightroom, indesign, and illustrator! feel free to try this method with other programs, and let me know if it works :D
if you wanna be safe, though, instead of replacing the file, move the existing amtlib file someplace else and move the amtlib file you downloaded into there. if the program opens normally, you’re good, but if the program doesn’t work, delete the amtlib file you moved in there, and move the original amtlib file back so you won’t screw up the program.
I just installed creative cloud and photoshop. I put the amtlib.dll file in and it didn’t replace any files and the trial is still counting down!
you’ve installed photoshop right from the creative cloud app. that gets you v 20.0, which is the 2019 version, and the amtlib thing doesn’t work with it. uninstall it and read my instructions more carefully pls
my cc updated to 2019! I was using unlimited photoshop before then and now the trial is popping up again. what do I do?
you should still have a previous version of photoshop still installed. go to the creative cloud app and click on the small arrow to the left of its icon. your previous version should show up- use that one. don’t use v 20.0
adobe detected my software as not genuine and says it’ll disable!
follow the instructions under the section titled “Remove Adobe Genuine Software Integrity Service” of this site to make that popup disappear. nothing will happen to your software.
does this method work with [other adobe program]?
it works with 2018 (and earlier) versions of lightroom, premiere, indesign, and illustrator. I will only know about other programs if someone tries it out (and tells me that it works!!!) so search my blog before asking about another program
[about some error that popped up in photoshop]
chances are I haven’t encountered your error before. googlingyour error will provide you better answers than I will
thanks for reading! if you found or will find this useful, reblog this post :D hmu if you have questions that haven’t been answered by the faq above (BUT FIRST check my ask tag (#ps cc ask) for this tutorial for previously-answered questions) or if my download links got reported again or something lmao
oh yeah bonus
