A torrent for the subscription version of Photoshop CC has appeared as spotted on The Pirate Bay. The torrent is named “Adobe Photoshop CC 14.0 Final Multilanguage.” The comments on the torrent listing seem to confirm this is the latest version of Photoshop and it works.
The reasons are simple: Adobe applications cost a lot, and they’re the best at what they do.
In the near future, only people who pay $20 per month for a single application, or $50 per month for the entire Creative Suite, will be able to install and upgrade Adobe software over the Internet. (Adobe’s offerings are targeted at professionals, who can tolerate such high prices as the cost of doing business.)
Despite the apparent availability of cracked Adobe applications online, it’s probably not a good idea to install them. You can’t know for sure which files contain malware or spyware.
If you do choose to take that route — and we don’t advocate that you do — make sure you scan each and every pirated, cracked or copied installer or file you download with a malware scanner before you run or open it. You’d also better have a robust anti-virus software product already installed.
Alternatively, you could also consider legally buying Adobe Photoshop Elements, a stripped-down version of Photoshop that does almost everything a non-professional user might need. It’s only $100, with steep discounts available at some online retailers.
