Photoshop

Will Adobe Photoshop ever be made portable, or is GIMP my only other option?

[Distributing a repackaged version of Adobe Photoshop is illegal. This topic has been locked]

( categories: )

Come on!

First: I am sorry on how rude I will be, but I think you're here long enough to know these things.

Second: please! There is more on PortableApps.com than the Off-Topic forum. This should go to the Request Apps Forum.

Third: no can do! Photoshop is not OpenSource, so it won't be portabilized. That is it. It is illegal to modify or redistribute Photoshop without Adobe permission. So PortableApps.com won't portabilize it.

Forth: Please see the Guidelines! Here are the Un-official Request Apps Guidelines, and the PortableApps.com Unnoficial FAQ (Request Apps Section).

Fifth: There is a search field, use it!!!

I don't like to be this way, but you already have 5 weeks of forums usage. You should know these things! I am sorry for this rudeness, I don't like to be like this, but this time it had to be like that.

Hope to have helped

First: There is no way to be rude online... only in real life so nothing you said was actually rude...
Second: Sorry about always posting in the Off-Topic forum, it's like a 10th home to me...
Third:"What's Up Fam, it's been 1 whole week, no "Welcome Back"?"
Fourth: I'll go to the request forums or GIMP forums, but I'll feel like an outsider out of place...

"Are you threatening a government official!?"
because
"WE! print the money"
"WE! tell you how to spend it"
and
"We BREED! the super soilders"
...
"Um...Forget that last part about the super soilders"
...

Sorry about that

Sorry for being rude (even if it is not possible to be rude online Sticking out tongue ).

I am a little stressed. *Goes get parent's Bob Marley CD and puts speakers on Max*

Well, now that I am not stressed Laughing out loud :

Welcome Back!!!

And... ah... once again sorry for the nonexistent rudeness. Laughing out loud

EDIT: Seems hours are messed up on my first comment, as it is 10 minutes ahead of other posts and my clock Sticking out tongue

EDIT2: And now this comment is 1 hour ahead of my clock Sticking out tongue

Photoshop CS3 is available

Photoshop CS3 is available portably on sites like [names of illegal software sites removed by mod JTH]. However Recommend if your going to get pirated software be careful coz 80% of it is infected with malware Shocked( the 2 sites I mentioned I suggest as I use them and both seem clean to me.

Note: I recall some religious stuff being said a while back so with no insult meant - Thou Shall Not Steal..

you can get it on [link censored] and type photoshop in the searchbar, you might have to install it (i don't remember) and then when you open it, a license agreement thing will pop up (no matter what u press it will still open). Laughing out loud

chavezery09, I'd like to request you to remove the link you made available on your post, as it links to illegal software (as in it was made available for free and modified without the company's permission) and that goes against the forum guidelines. Beyond that I would like to add that the specific site you linked to has a bitter relationship with PortableApps.com as it uses this site's launchers and apps without the proper requirements of such launcher's licenses (notify the user of the original creator and provide the source code), and uses the PortableApps.com trademarks without proper permission from John.

So, again, I would like to request that you remove the link from your comment, and thank you ahead.

Oh, and welcome to PortableApps! Smiling

im just saying

i know this sounds weird but i randomly got a version of photo shop with all the features and it is one .exe and it is about 40 MB and i can put it on a flash drive and run it isn't that portable?/

Just because you have it doesn't make it legal!

Versions of Photoshop DO exist that have been modified or packaged to run more or less portably.
But consider that even the cheapest version of Photoshop costs $199.
Adobe doesn't give their product away for free, and they don't allow the repackaging or modification of their product with the intent of giving it away for free.
If you have "randomly" acquired a portable version of Photoshop, then you have received stolen property.

C'mon. How often do we have to say that illegal is NOT supported, NOT distributed, and NOT encouraged at PortableApps.com?

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.

"one .exe"

"one .exe" sounds like ThinApp. This has been said at least a zillion times before, but I'll say it again... *sigh*

ThinApp itself is pirated in 99% of cases; the price tag is too high for most people to get it legally. Therefore, right out the gate, you've probably got a pirated app. Piracy #1.

Next, Photoshop is a commercial app. You can't just "randomly get" it without shelling out a lot of cash, and it doesn't sound like you did that. Piracy #2.

Third, I'm not familiar with Photoshop's license terms, but they probably say something "You're not allowed to modify this app in any way." That includes portabilizing it, with or without ThinApp. License violation.

Finally, "randomly" getting a pirated app is just begging for malware. I don't recall the exact statistics, but I saw stats someplace showing that some ridiculously high percentage of pirated apps is laced with malware. And why wouldn't it be? The guy who makes the pirated app knows you're not likely to go get some help for fear of repercussions from getting pirated apps. He also knows he can make a nice bundle of cash by giving you a banking trojan (Zeus is pretty popular lately) and draining your bank account, by giving you a spam-sender (spam is a ludicrous racket, from all I hear), or through any number of other tricks. Sheer stupidity.

If you want a really-portable, legal, Photoshop, contact VMWare and ask them about it. They'll let you buy ThinApp for something like $5,000 or $10,000; they can also talk to Adobe about the licensing. Just be aware you'll pay through the nose for your privilege (I wasn't kidding about the price tag on ThinApp).

omg

yes there are ways to get things for free the full versions of it sure they might not be legal but there still are ways Eye-wink

How often do we have to say

*headdesks*

You, sir, seem to be one of those people who are bent on getting what they want regardless of what that requires. I can quite honestly say I have no respect for that.
I'm also not quite sure #1 why you're here (since we're all about doing things legally here; if you like portable pirated apps so much, you can get them in a plethora of places) and #2 why you're bringing this up here (see my comment for #1).

There are "ways" to do just about anything. Those ways aren't necessarily legal, and IMHO if it's illegal you shouldn't even consider it. There are gray areas, of course, but this isn't one of them.

"The question I would like to know, is the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything. All we know about it is that the Answer is Forty-two, which is a little aggravating."

well

Let me start off by saying I'm not here to argue for 1. i am here because believe it or not i do things legally. And sure i would do whatever it takes to get what i want you cannot sit here and tell me you wouldn't. I brought it all up because i saw some people saying it is not possible to do when it clearly is doesn't matter if it is legal or not my point being that it is possible. And yes I'm not sitting here saying i support people to go out and do illegal things. That is not even close to what i am saying because yea your right if it is illegal then don't do it. I ran across this by accident actually and was like well what the hell and downloaded it just to see if it worked and it did. So u see i am not such a bad person.

Again

The package you are talking about is illegal. Redistributing that package is illegal. And downloading a 'warez' version like you did is illegal. So, you've demonstrated that you're not interested in following the law, which is your decision. But you need to keep this discussion out of our forums. These forums are for LEGAL activities only. Users who continue to post about illegal software will be banned.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
