Hey guys! So lately I’ve been receiving a lot of asks about my previous Photoshop Cs6 tutorial, so I thought I’d make you guys a new and updated one. I’m not sure what Adobe’s problem with cs6 right now is, but the better option right now is to install Photoshop CC (its the same thing, just improved and better)
IMPORTANT: This is a tutorial for windows (Microsoft® Windows® 7 with Service Pack 1, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 *). Not sure if it will work for mac. (UPDATE: FOR MAC Check bottom of this tutorial)
Firstly, you will need to create an adobe account (unless you already have one). Sign up here.
Download the 30 day Trial version of Photoshop here. Follow the steps indicated to complete your download and installation. (Yes, you will have to install creative cloud because Photoshop is downloaded through it. You will see other apps there (hosted by Adobe), but only download Photoshop CC.There’s no way around it. It takes a little while, of course depending on your internet speed).
NOTE: DO NOT OPEN PHOTOSHOP AFTER INSTALLING.
Download this .dll file here. (This is the file that makes photoshop permanent). You will see two folders, so just click the download button on top to download the zipped folder.
Find the downloaded folder and open it. (If it isn’t opening, right click > open with > windows explorer).
Leave the “Photoshop CC files” folder opened.
Click start menu. Go to Computer » Local Disk (c:)
Click Program Files (There will be two: ‘program files’ or ‘program files (x86)’. Click on the folder that is compatible with your operating system. Need to know the difference?
Click on Adobe folder » Adobe Photoshop CC
Find (ctrl+f) the amtlib.dll file and rename it to amtlib1.dll (VERY IMPORTANT)
Leaving the “Adobe Photoshop CC” folder open, go back to your downloaded folder ”Photoshop CC files”.
Open your compatible folder (x64 or x86) and copy the ‘amtlib.dll’ file inside. (Right click and select copy)
Go back to your “Photoshop CC” folder in step 9/10 and paste the copied ‘amtlib.dll’ file.
It should look like this:
UPDATED FOR MAC:
1. Follow the relevant steps (in downloading and installing photoshop)
2. You have to download THIS folder instead of step 3 above.
3. Unzip the folder (double click it and it would start to unzip) and copy the framework inside
4. Open “Finder” and click on the applications menu
5. Open your “Adobe Photoshop CC” folder.
8. Right click on the app Icon and select “show package content”
You will see two folders, proceed to open the “Contents” folder.
9. Go to frameworks and paste the downloaded framework
There you go! (Im not too familiar with mac, so sorry for the vague steps. But it should be clear as to what you have to do)
NOW YOU ARE DONE!
You can open photoshop now without getting the trial message. :)
Hope this tutorial helps! Message me if you are having any trouble!
