What’s New:

Version 21.0.0:
Cloud documents:

  • With Photoshop now on the iPad, use cloud documents to work seamelessly across Mac, Windows, and your iPad. Your documents are saved to Adobe’s cloud as you work.

Improvements to presets:

  • Explore new swatches, gradients, patterns, shapes, and styles effortlessly. Presets are now more intuitive to use and easier to organize.

New Object Selection tool:

  • Use the new Object Selection tool to better automate complex selections. Simply define a region and Photoshop does the rest.

Consistent transform behavior:

  • Proportionally transform multiple layers, regardless of the layer type, without using the Shift key.

Improved properties panel:

  • Find even more of the controls you need in one central location. Easily change document settings, access all type layer settings, and conveniently use Quick Actions.

Smart Object to layers:

  • Easily convert your Smart Objects back into component layers to fine-tune your designs—all in one place, without having to switch between document windows.

Enhanced Transform Warp:

  • Get more control with the Warp tool. Add control points anywhere or divide your image with a customizable grid to transform by individual nodes, or a larger selection.

    For 10.12+ if
    When you run the installer writes «The installation cannot continue as the installer file may be damaged. Download the installer file again».
    sudo spctl --master-disable

    Install using patch:

    Attention! Before installing, disconnect from the Internet
    0. Mount the image Adobe_Photoshop_CC_ [TNT] .dmg
    1. Run the Install installer and follow the instructions (located in the Extra folder)
    2. After installation, do not run the program in trial mode (close the application forcibly if it starts up on its own)
    3. From the desktop, launch the Adobe Zii patch and press the PATCH or drag the icon of the installed Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 into the open patch window
    Patcher by TNT

    Who has the Illustrator or another installed – be careful with the patch.
    Install the program and use the patch that is in the distribution – drag the program icon to the open patch window, and do not use the automatic function (here, all installed Adobe applications will be patched automatically, and with such actions errors may occur)

      Cannot open because it gives me a window that says “The installation cannot continue as the installer file may be damaged. Download the installer file again” there is no option other than exit- no place for a code or anything- I tried terminal but terminal says it needs a password

        The password `Terminal´ ask for is the one you have on your laptop, after that go to `Security and Privacy´ (General) and check `Allows app downloaded from´ : -App Store -App Store and identified developers -Anywhere (click this one)

      Si la primera vez no funciona “abrir”prueba a hacerlo con : abrir como objeto inteligente, que esta un poco mas abajo.
      Tambien la primera vez puedes abrir directamente desde el documento o la imagen, despues cierras el programa y lo abres y ya funcionara abrir directamente.

      Ok for those who has no idea how to install it (i have Catalina 10.15)

      Step 1: before downloading make sure you deleted ALL FILES OF PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF PHOTOSHOP. its really important and will not work without this step (i had adobe brigde cs6, extended managed cs6 and something else…)
      Step 2: download dmg. file and open it (DONT FORGET TO SWITCH OFF WIFI)
      Step 3: i copied the folder ‘extra’ to my desktop in case i need to use terminal (spoiler i didn’t use it)
      Step 4: open the folder Extra and run the Install app. (it may ask your password so it’s ok i didn’t catch any virus)
      Step 5: after installation close photoshop and open Adobe Zii (located in the same place as the “Extra” folder).
      Step 6: open Applications and drag Photoshop app to Adobe Zii. Close it and voila!

      PS if you already have any other adobe products (Illustrator etc.) you may have some problems on the last step but i tried a few times and that worked. Good luck and sorry for mistakes if there are any!

    When I start the Install file, it launches something like if it’s going to instal, then I get a notification: “a different instal program is currently active and must be closed before you can instal this product”(sorry if my English isn’t right). I closed all the running programs on my MacBook but I still get this notification.
    What should I do?

      Use Chrome and use a good Ad blocker browser plugin. Otherwise you will download a file which is malware and not your application. I use uBlock Origin Chrome plugin and it defeats all such pop-ups, and downloads.

      I had the same on Catalina. You just have to delete the folder “Adobe Application Manager” in Applications -> Utilities. Restart the mac and you should be good to go.

      If you get an Error Code 1 in Catalina try this (thanks, Anton):

      Figured out how to install in Catalina. This worked for me. Just wanted to share.
      If you had previous installations of Photoshop, you need to fully remove all files associated with it. Then you need to Clean the creative cloud by downloading the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool (AdobeCreativeCloudCleanerTool.dmg) from Adobe.
      Once cleaned, restart and install as instructed above.
      Again, it worked for me.

    Es lo mismo que con el Zii patcher en Catalina.

    Open a Terminal with appropriate privileges (“sudo bash” to make you root on most systems)
    Enter the following, substituting “AppName (AdobeZii)” with the real name of the app (Applications folder, rename it so there are no spaces):
    xattr -cr (drag and drop el dmg y luego podés abrirlo en catalina)

    Downloaded Photoshop for Catalina Mac and it worked fine. I had to turn off wi-fi for starting and turning it back on but that’s whatever. Although I installed also Illustrator today and everything was working fine until I had to restart the computer and now it’s impossible to start Photoshop at all. But Illustrator is still working.

    Anyone knows what could be the problem?

      You can’t let it connect to the internet… you’ll have to uninstall everything with WiFi off and reinstall it without letting it update. I disabled all of CC’s abilities to update, connect to anything and then put a firewall on every single CC app I could find. It’s probably complete overkill (because only a newer version of CC detects the patched version) but I have a court case and I don’t have time to mess around with this. So, as long as CC is a pre-detection version AND you disallow it to update, you’ll be fine. (Go into the CC preferences when you first install it- you might be able to even with WiFi off, if not just open it regularly and immediately disable all those tabs of CC prefs.) Just save all your PS docs to the computer or use Google drive instead, or whatever you want.

    After I double click the .dmg file it just shows the adobe flash player icon, and does not move from there. I have everything turned off as far as wifi goes, but it does not do anything. First MacBook so I really don’t know much of what I am doing. Any help is apreciated

    Okay so spoiler alert. I bought this MacBook not to long ago, but I am willing to learn.

    I download the .dmg file, and run it, I do get the FlashAdobePlayer icon and I Run it, but it doesn’t do anything. Any help is really appreciated. Thanks

    Firstly I downloaded AdobeCreativeCloudCleanerTool.dmg from Adobe to get rid of previous Adobe versions – I uninstalled everything as CS6 stopped working with the latest update from 10.15.3 to 10.15.4…?!

    Installation of the program above went smooth with Wifi/Ethernet turned off in preferences (just disconnect the internet cable if you don’t get me and/or deactivate Wifi in the top bar). I applied the patch, it returned “completed”. I also deleted the “Adobe Application Manager” in Applications -> Utilities and rebooted like Natu says above. But when I start Photoshop by clicking on it, it crashes on startup. The crash report mentions error code 6. This happens regardless of being connected to the internet or not. I’m on a 10.15.4 Hackintosh and believe to be quite advanced in regard to Macs… I also installed Adobe Acrobat DC from this site after Photoshop not working. Acrobat works flawlessly after patching.

    When I start Photoshop with crtl+alt+shift held down to reset the settings (as mentioned here: I get the blue title screen and a dialog asking me whether I want to reset the settings. Upon accepting or denying, the application crashed however. I also tried disabling the dark mode (as described here: for photoshop, but it keeps crashing on startup.

    Ana above seems to have the same problem, although I believe her application doesn’t start at all, which happens to me, when I patch this application version with the patcher 5.1.9 instead of 5.2.0…

    I’m on Catalina 10.15.5

    Installed great. Works great. The only thing is I cannot start the program while my WIFI is on. With the WIFI off, it starts fine.

    I have installed Premiere and Illustrator, and they work great even while the WIFI is on. It’s just Photoshop that doesn’t start up when connected to the internet.

    How can I fix this?

    Thanks in advance.
